MALVERN, Pa. -- October 24, 2012

USA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: USAT), (“USAT”), a leader of wireless,
cashless payment and M2M telemetry solutions for small-ticket, self-serve
retailing industries, has been ranked as one of the top five shippers of
point-of-sale (POS) terminals in the United States. The Nilson Report, a
leading source of research on consumer payment systems worldwide, again ranked
USAT 5th among the leading POS shippers in the United States for calendar year
2011. On a worldwide basis, USAT was ranked 30^th.

“Placements of our ePort® cashless payment terminals, such as our NFC-enabled
ePort G8, continue to drive adoption in the unattended, small-ticket market as
operators of these traditionally cash-based operations experience the many
benefits our solutions can bring to their businesses,” said Maeve McKenna
Duska, vice president of marketing for USA Technologies. “We believe that
USAT’s ranking in the U.S. alongside global names such as VeriFone, Ingenico
and First Data highlights our leadership role in the small-ticket, unattended
space—a market we serve through a variety of POS options, mobile-based
solutions and one-stop service,” said Duska.

In addition to ePort EDGE and ePort G8 POS terminals, USAT’s PCI-compliant,
cashless payments technology portfolio also includes QuickConnect™, an API Web
service, all of which integrate with ePort Connect®, USAT’s comprehensive
service platform designed specifically for small-ticket, self-service
unattended retail locations such as vending and kiosk. During USAT’s last
fiscal year ended June 30, 2012, connections to USAT’s ePort Connect service
grew by 38% to 164,000 connections, with 224,000 connections targeted by the
end of the current fiscal year ending June 30, 2013.
