6 Factors to Consider When Buying a Money Counting Machine

by Pathlie Lee Business consultant

A money counting machine can make it easier for your staff to perform their tasks. It also eliminates error and ensures accuracy in counting every single cent of money that comes through your counters. If you’re thinking about getting a few of these machines for your shop, keep these factors in mind. They can help you check out options that suit your needs.


How much does the cash machine cost? Cheap options might not provide the features you need. However, that doesn’t mean machines with an expensive price tag are the only way to go. Do your homework and find out which machines provide better value for money. That’s one way to make sure you get a machine that’s well worth the cost.


Money counting machines with plenty of features are tempting. But do you really need all those features? Will your staff use them? If you run a small shop or business, a basic, no-frills machine is enough to get the job done. You don’t need machines loaded with features you won’t be able to use anyway. If you have a large supermarket, then you’ll want to look for machines that can sense bill denomination values and those with counterfeit detection technology.

Ease of Use

The point of having these machines is to make the work easier. But if using the machine is time-consuming, that will only bog down your team. Make sure you check ease of use before you choose a money counting solution. Even with more features, a good machine should still be easy to use. Look at the user interface to get a better sense of how to use the unit.

Hopper Capacity

The hopper is where you place the bills that you need the machine to count. Some machines come with trays for the bills. This is where the counted bills end up. Hopper capacity determines how much money you can sort out at a given time. That’s why it matters. If the machine is tiny, then it can only handle a small amount of money. If you run a small business, though, that’s a good fit for your needs. For a big business, consider getting a machine with bigger hopper capacity.

Counterfeit Detection

Look for machines that come with this feature. This prevents you from getting a counterfeit bill. That way, you won’t be tricked by customers using fake money. Plus, trying to check every bill is time-consuming. If you’ve got a long line of customers, you might skip that process only to regret that later. A money counting machine with counterfeit detection is convenient for you.

Mixed Denomination Value

Machines with a mixed denomination value feature are much more expensive. But they can do more. And they make it easy to sort out the money for you. If you want fast and accurate sorting and counting speeds, then invest in this machine. If you have room in your budget, the sorting function alone saves you a ton of time and is worth every penny.
