Taking the bus to Haarlem from Schiphol airport

I am confused on how to pay for my bus ticket. Sometimes my pin credit card does not work.

Exit the airport through the main doors, lots of buses out front, #300 is the one to Haarlem. Here's some more info about it if you haven't seen. Very simple once you're aboard. It runs on its own lanes, on the highways and then in Haarlem.

Last spring we had trouble figuring out where to get tickets, but the answer was a small bus-like vehicle parked between the terminal and the platform where #300 goes. As I recall it was red, but maybe another color. It had signage indicating bus tickets for sale.

When you enter the bus you tap the ticket on a machine (to the left as I recall just inside the doors). Once we got the tickets the rest was easy.
