People’s Choice Credit Union has launched deposit-taking technology at select ATM locations throughout the rediATM network, making banking even more convenient for its 357,000 members across Australia.
The credit union announced that 31 machines in South Australia, Victoria and the Northern Territory have been enabled with the new cash deposit facilities, allowing accounts linked to the member’s card to be credited in real time.
People’s Choice spokesperson, Stuart Symons, said members’ changing expectations for depositing cash drove the installation of the new technology.
“Depositing cash at ATMs is considered a standard and essential service, as more people require 24/7 banking services,” Mr Symons said.
“While many of the major banks already facilitate ATM deposits, People’s Choice is one of only a handful of credit unions in the country to offer this service to its members.
“The launch of this new functionality at dozens of ATM locations around the country complements the extensive access we already provide through our branch network, our National Contact Centre, Internet Banking and online services, mobile banking, the existing rediATM network and Bank@Post,” he said.
People’s Choice deposit-taking ATMs will accept up to $10,000 in cash per deposit, with multiple cash deposits enabled on the same day. Later in 2017, select deposit-taking ATMs will also accept cheques.
The locations of deposit-taking ATMs can be searched in the Locator tool on the People’s Choice website.
