Frequently Asked Questions
Who gets the surcharge?
The owner of the ATM determines how the surcharge revenue is distributed.
How much is the surcharge?
The surcharge is determined by the ATM owner. The surcharge can be set at any amount, depending on limitations set by the law in your area.
What happens when someone does not get enough money?
This is rare, but if this does happen, the customer should call their bank to verify the completion of the transaction on their account. If a withdrawal was made from the account and you did not get the money, a “Regulation E Claim” should be filed with the issuer of the card.
SYNTHILUX should be contacted with continued problems at 480-208-5986. Our phone number is also on the ATM surcharge sticker. NEVER give the customer money; you may not get it back!!

How do I load my ATM?
Once your ATM is installed – you will be trained on the procedure of loading cash into your new ATM machine.
How much revenue can I expect to generate from an ATM placement?
That generally depends on the amount of foot traffic your location has on a daily basis. The rule of thumb typically is 3% of the foot traffic that actually sees the ATM machine will use the ATM. For example, you have a total of 500 people a day coming through your doors, and you are charging $2.00 per valid withdrawal. If you take the 3% of the people that see the ATM machine will use it, then your ATM machine will generate you 500 transactions per month at $2.00 per valid withdrawal. That leads to $1000 per month or a total of $12,000 per year.
My company accepts credit cards. Is it still worthwhile to place an ATM machine?
Absolutely! This will not only put available cash in the hands of your customers, but it will also help save money on your credit card processing fees.
