Bill Counter Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Bill and Money Counting Machines / CountersWhether you already own a bill counter or are in the market for one, it’s possible you may have a few questions about these convenient devices. I have spoken with many customers and answered several questions regarding bill counters. Here are some of the most common questions I get:

  • Can bill counters be used with foreign currencies? Yes, they can. Just be sure the foreign bills fit within the minimum and maximum specifications of the bill counter.
  • Can bill counters detect counterfeit money? Some can and some can’t. It depends on the bill counter. Most will specify whether they have counterfeit detection capabilities.
  • Can bill counters tell the difference between bill values? Most can’t. There are only few machines out there that can tell the difference between bill values. These machines are commonly referred to as bill discriminators. The Klopp PLUS P-624 is an example of a bill discriminator that we offer.
  • Can bill counters count paper? Yes. They can count paper, tickets and other material as long as it fits within the bill counter’s minimum and maximum specifications.
  • Can bill counters be used with both new and used bills? Yes. They can be used with new, used or mixed bills. Just be aware that you will not be able to fit as many used (old) bills in the counter as new. The general rule is that you can fit half as many used bills in a counter as new bills. If your bill counter holds 200 new bills, it will hold 100 used bills.
  • Can bill counters run on batteries? Some can, but most can’t. Bill counters typically require more power than batteries offer in order to count bills. The ABC V-30 is a great example of a counter that runs on batteries or an outlet.

These are a few of the most common questions we get. You can read more about bill counters by reading our bill counter guide found here. You can find our entire selection of bill counting machines here.
