5 Features You Need In Your Bill Counter

Bill & Currency CountersBill counters are great machines to have on hand if you handle money on daily basis. They are typically fast, efficient and save hours of time versus manually counting money by hand.

While there are many different types of bill counters out there, there are a few common features that you will probably want in a machine. Here are a few suggestions that may prove useful if you are in the process of getting a machine.

5 Features You Need In Your Bill Counter

  1. Batch Counting – Batch counting is extremely useful when counting bills. It makes it easy to create organized stacks of money and is a must-have tool for many businesses.
  2. Speed – I recommend getting a bill counter that counts at least 600 bills a minute (minimum).
  3. Portability – Make sure your bill counter either has a carrying handle or is portable. This is very important for most businesses that count money on a daily basis.
  4. Hopper Capacity – Try to get a bill counter that has the ability to hold at least 100 used or 200 new bills. This will save you a lot of time.
  5. Digital Display – Lighted digital displays make the amount easy to see and read versus monochrome LCD displays.

Here are a few features that I find nice but are not absolute necessities for everyone:

  • Counterfeit Detection – Catches counterfeited bills.
  • Dust Cover – Keeps dust from counted bills from polluting the air.
  • Fan Filtration – Removes dust from counted bills. Great for those with allergies.
  • Half & Short Bill Detection – Lets you know when damaged bills are found.
  • Variable Speed – Great for counting coupons, paper and other non-bill material.
