Diebold has unveiled an ATM that can be used for cardless withdrawals
USA | January 2013


Diebold, the American ATM manufacturer recently presented its new ATM at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas. This innovative machine, which will be tested by banks during 2013, enables users to make withdrawals without a card. Users scan the ATM’s QR code with their mobile phone which then syncs with the ATM via the cloud. After having selected the withdrawal amount on their phone, users then receive, via their smartphone, a one-time code which enables them to withdraw the required cash amount from the ATM. Users can also send money to third parties by transmitting the code to them. This type of machine could help banks save money by reducing the number of bank cards issued.
