In-store ATMs have been a staple of modern convenience stores for many years now, providing customers with fast easy and safe access to cash. Now, in first for the Irish market, Ireland’s largest convenience store retailer BWG Group is introducing an own-brand in-store ATM service for customers, known as Your Money Kiosk.
Your Money Kiosk will accept all major credit and debit cards through Visa and Mastercard, and will also feature a number of handy functions, which have hitherto been absent from in-store ATMs, one of their few drawbacks in comparison to on-street cash services.
Customers will be able to carry out account enquiries as well as make use of a currency conversion service, offering foreign customers the option to settle a transaction in their home currency.
As well as these internal features, the Your Money Kiosk ATMs will boast enhanced security features incvluding built-in fraud settings, a recessed pin pad to prevent “shoulder surfing” and a card reader specially designed to prohibit skimming devices.
Commenting at the launch, John Clohisey, Group Property Director, BWG Group said,
“These days, convenience stores have a multi-dimensional offer spanning a range of services,” said John Clohisey, group property director at BWG Group, “not just limited to food and beverage. We saw an opportunity to utilise our convenient locations and opening hours to provide a more flexible money service which suits the busy and varied lifestyles of our customers.
“Our new money service has been specially designed with our retail customers in mind and by investing in this exciting new service we are continuing to push the boundaries of retail innovation and keep adding value to our customer’s in-store experience,” said Clohisey.
The first phase of the Your Money Kiosk rollout will see over 100 ATM terminals introduced to Spar, Eurospar, Mace, Londis and XL retailers throughout the country over the next month. Additional features will subsequently be added to the ATM terminals in the near future.
