Cash to card kiosk solutions for customer convenience at cashless venues.

Cash to Card Kiosk Overview

Even before 2020, many large venues such as sports arenas and music venues had transitioned to card-only business models, and after the start of the Covid pandemic, other businesses followed. A cashless business streamlines transactions and reduces risk for employees. While the transition to cashless may be a minor inconvenience or even go unnoticed for most, FDIC estimates that 5.4% of households were unbanked in 2019. That equates to 7.1 million Americans who don’t have access to a bank account or debit card.
A pre-paid card kiosk creates a seamless customer experience by allowing the user to convert cash to card instantly. It generates a prepaid card on the spot that can be used to pay in businesses that don’t accept cash. Cash to card kiosks are convenient for young people and students who may not have a bank account of their own, senior citizens, and international guests using cash to avoid high foreign transaction fees.

What is a Cash-to-Card Kiosk?

A Cash to Card Kiosk is a self-service terminal that allows users to convert physical cash into digital currency or load funds onto a prepaid card. Users can insert cash into the kiosk, and the corresponding amount is credited to the linked card or provided in the form of a digital balance. These kiosks are often found in retail locations, sports arenas, or other areas where individuals may need to convert cash into a more convenient digital form for transactions.

Benefits for Businesses and Customers

Cashless Benefits to Businesses

Many consumers were accustomed to using cards before 2020, but the Covid-19 pandemic catapulted the use of digital payments for daily purchases. It’s a natural progression for businesses to transition from mostly digital to a completely cashless business model.
Cash can be time consuming and costly for business, requiring armored carrier services and intensive staff activity for prepping, counting, and reconciling cash registers. Going cash free eliminates cash register discrepancies and saves time on mundane cash-related tasks for staff. Implementing a cash to card kiosk might seem like a small and simple change, but it can help your team save hours of work by reducing employees’ cash handling task load and enabling them to provide better customer service.
Cashless operations increase staff safety by eliminating the need to handle high-touch cash, mitigating person-to-person contact, and reducing theft risk.

Cashless Benefits to Customers

Card payments are up to 50% faster than cash, which means customers spend less time waiting in line and more time enjoying the event they came for. Card only registers move customers through lines much more quickly during rush times like pregame, half-time, or intermissions.

Cash-to-Card Kiosks Fill in the Gaps

Despite recent moves to cashless operations, a significant number of consumers remain cash preferred or cash dependent. Cash preferred customers have bank accounts but would rather make payments in cash, while cash dependent customers are part of the 7.1 million American households that are unbanked. Cash to card ATM kiosks are useful for youth who may not have a bank account of their own, and international travelers using cash while abroad. Customers who don’t have access to bank accounts or prefer to pay in cash can use a cash onto card kiosk to deposit cash on to a prepaid debit card that can be used immediately at the cashless venue or anywhere else debit cards are accepted.
