HOUSTON, May 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cardtronics today announced that Unit, the banking-as-a-service platform that is empowering companies to embed financial services into their products, is adding the Allpoint Network of surcharge-free ATMs to its platform as part of a new partnership agreement with Cardtronics.
Unit’s platform helps companies natively integrate financial features like checking accounts, debit cards, money transfers, and lending into their businesses by way of API. By providing access to the Allpoint Network’s 55,000 ATMs, Unit clients can now give their customers a physical connection point for fee-free cash withdrawals and, in select locations for participating financial institutions, fee-free cash deposits in high-profile retail locations nationwide.
“Unit empowers our clients to reimagine financial services by delivering all the building blocks they need to embed banking into their products,” said Itai Damti, co-founder and CEO of Unit. “Our ultimate shared goal is increasing access to the financial system — which for many people includes cash. We’re excited to partner with Allpoint and enable surcharge-free ATM access, which presents a meaningful step forward in our vision to add convenience and best-in-class experiences across users’ entire financial lives.”
“We are pleased to partner with an innovative company like Unit, with whom we share an aligned vision around bridging finance and technology,” said Carter Hunt, Managing Director of North America for Cardtronics. “Our nationwide network of surcharge-free Allpoint ATMs provides Unit with another layer of convenience and scale for its customers.”
