How much does it cost to set up a ATM?
ATM machines can range in cost from $1,000 to $8,000. This is a wide range, but it depends on the size of the machine and the age. Realistically, however, you should probably expect to pay around $2,000-$3,000. That is the range for the most common, free standing ATM machines.
Is owning an ATM profitable?
Daniel said self-service or buying your own ATM is very profitable, and between 15 and 30 transactions a month yield a high return. “[It’s] a great secondary source of income that could equal between anywhere between $20,000 and $30,000 extra per year,” he said.
How much does an ATM owner make a month?
Overestimate cash flow
There are many sources online which tell you that you can make $500 per month or more from each ATM. Most of the time, these estimates are much too high. My recommendation is to do your homework and count on $250-$300 of income on the higher side. $150-$200 on the low side is a safe bet.
