The vault cash requirements for the machines are highly variable depending on the denomination, transaction volume, withdrawal average and load frequency. Average withdrawal transactions volumes on ATMs are anywhere from 100-200 transactions per month. Some ATMs can be lower than 100 per month and of course there are locations with much higher volume although this is the average we see after analyzing thousands of independently owned ATMs. Average transaction withdrawal amounts are anywhere from $60-$80 per withdrawal. Using these averages the typical machine we see would go through $6000-$8000 per month on the low end and $12,000-$16,000 on the higher end. Given a weekly vault cash of the location, anywhere from $2000-$4000 per machine would be required on a rotating basis.
Normally, ATM operators would also figure in an overage to cover inconsistencies in the vault cash. Please keep in mind these are estimates and averages only.
