(1) I like to do my banking at a bank machine.
(2) I like to do my banking on a bank machine.
(3) I like to do my banking from a bank machine.

Which preposition is correct? Thank you very much.

If you are talking about the whole range of services you would do at a bank (paying in money and cheques, checking your balance, donating to charities, taking money out, moving money between accounts) then you do it
at an ATM

that is the location for this action: at the Post Office, at the bank, at an ATM,


If you are talking about walking away with more than you arrived with (ie taking out money) you get your cash from an ATM.

that is the source
from the post office, from the bank, from an ATM, from the till, from the cash-box at work, from my parents.
