HOP! cash machines in Hong Hong are designed to do more than just dole out money. These two-in-one machines are also designed to be convenient stations where consumers can pick up the items that they have ordered online.

When a package becomes available for pickup, HOP! (also known as 'House of Parcels') sends a six-digit code to a consumer's mobile device or email and securely access their purchase. This collaboration between ATM supplier NCR and courier services provider LTF Asia and PCCW is set to facilitate online-to-offline transactions.

A few giant online retailers have also implemented similar offline delivery pickup boxes like this one around the world, but the HOP! machine stands on its own as a unique and secure storage locker and ATM hybrid.
