AmStar deploys financial services kiosks

From Kiosk Marketplace:
"The AmStar eca$hier financial services kiosk is designed for the unbanked market, which, according to a recent U.S. Treasury Department study, is approximately 43 percent of the U.S. population and represents nearly 75 million people with buying power of over $650 billion a year. Most eca$hier users are not part of any banking system. The kiosk allows customers to purchase prepaid debit cards, reload debit cards, transfer money to Mexico, order money orders and receive cash. The eca$hier unit is equipped with a card reader and MEI cash acceptor, providing eca$hier purchasers with 100% market usage of the equipment."
Despite the hard-to-pronounce name, the eca$shier kiosk follows successful projects like ExxonMobil's e-wiz, and Circle-K/InfoTouch's TIO line of financial service kiosks.
