Global online cash payments provider, Ukash and independent ATM operator, Bank Machine, have joined forces to give consumers more flexible access to cash. Consumers can now convert Ukash codes into cash at Bank Machine ATMs across the UK without the need for a debit or credit card following the launch of this unique new service.
“The partnership between Ukash and Bank Machine, the longest-established independent ATM operator in the UK, will make Bank Machine the first non-bank operator to offer cardless cash withdrawals at ATMs,” said David Hunter CEO, Ukash.
Stephen Hart, Business Development Manager, Bank Machine added: “At Bank Machine, our constant focus is on increasing consumer access to cash through our ATMs. The partnership between Ukash and Bank Machine certainly achieves that, and this innovation clearly demonstrates that ATMs can provide services that complement those offered on the internet. We look forward to offering this service to customers on more than 3,000 Bank Machine ATMs across the UK.”
