MALVERN, Pa. & SAN DIEGO -- January 24, 2013

USA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: USAT), a leader of wireless, cashless payment
and M2M telemetry solutions for small-ticket, self-serve retailing industries,
and Fresh Healthy Vending, a leader in healthy vending machine franchises,
today announced that Fresh Healthy Vending, will be incorporating USAT’s
ePort® and ePort Connect® service for cashless payment and telemetry in the
launch of their latest Fresh Healthy Vending Café machine, an innovative
solution that combines specialty coffee service with healthy snack and drink
options. Through its franchisee network, Fresh Healthy Vending already has
over 2,000 machines on USA Technologies’ service.

“No one should have to settle for unhealthy food anymore,” said Alex Kennedy,
Vice President of Franchise Development for Fresh Healthy Vending. “The fact
is that there is a growing need for healthy options in vending machines—they
are the fastest growing segment of the healthy food category in North America.
Our latest franchise opportunity, Fresh Healthy Vending Café, was developed as
a result of the growing demand for both healthy snacks as well as fresh,
organic coffee choices. The franchise incorporates groundbreaking
equipment—our Fresh Healthy Vending Café machine—that is exclusive to Fresh
Healthy Vending and, of course, cashless and telemetry by USA Technologies.”

The Fresh Healthy Vending Café machine grinds whole coffee beans, extracts
espresso, froths the milk, and disposes of spent grinds in fewer than 40
seconds. The bottom of the machine is chilled, for products like smoothies,
granola bars or natural sodas.

“Our commitment to USA Technologies as our cashless and telemetry partner was
an obvious strategic choice for us,” added Ryan Ball, Operations Manager for
Fresh Healthy Vending. “We have tested a few other names in the cashless and
telemetry market, but USA Technologies has proven to us that their support and
service are superior. Their unique turn-key system also makes it easy for us
to provide a plug-and-play solution to our customers and franchisees.

“In addition, our franchise operators understand the importance of data in
monitoring sales activity, inventory needs and machine status. And, they
recognize that cashless payment options can optimize transaction yields
through multi-vend choices while also enabling support for the premium price
associated with our more gourmet options,” concluded Ball.

“We are very pleased to be a partner of choice for Fresh Healthy Vending as
they continue their impressive growth track,” said Mike Lawlor, Senior Vice
President of Sales and Business Development for USA Technologies. “We look
forward to working with them to capture the synergies we believe cashless and
healthy choice vending can generate, particularly through multi-vend purchases
and higher priced products.”
