  Nationwide Network of Operators

Business Wire

MALVERN, Pa. -- February 6, 2013

USA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: USAT) (“USAT”), a leader of wireless, cashless
payment and M2M telemetry solutions for small-ticket, self-serve retailing
industries, today announced a new agreement with Ice House America™, a pioneer
in automated ice vending technology. The agreement covers the use of USAT’s
ePort® and ePort Connect® cashless payment and telemetry services for Ice
House America’s units located throughout the U.S. and establishes USAT as a
preferred partner.

The announcement follows on the heels of Ice House America’s recently created
franchise program to further expand its existing network of over 2,400
independently owned locations, which collectively produce over 1 billion
pounds of ice per year. Ice House America products offer a 24/7, convenient
free-standing retail ice destination offering a soft, chipped and chewable
ice, which is typically offered in 20 lbs. bulk ice (direct to cooler) and 16
lb. bagged ice—always filtered, clean and made on demand.

“Ice House America recognized the need for ensuring that our operators are
equipped with industry-leading cashless payment capabilities as more consumers
opt for the convenience of using their credit, debit and prepaid cards to pay
for purchases,” said Pete Cotter, chief executive officer of Ice House
America. “Our goal is to offer USAT’s service to the entire Ice House America
network to begin promoting adoption of cashless payments.”

USAT’s ePort cashless payment system is supported by its comprehensive,
one-stop ePort Connect service—a PCI-compliant, comprehensive suite of
cashless payment, telemetry and consumer engagement services specially
tailored to fit the needs of the self-service retailing industry, including
vending, kiosk and other M2M (Machine-to-Machine) applications. ePort Connect
enables self-service terminals to accept credit, debit, contactless cards and
other cashless forms of payment, handles all elements of transaction
processing, and allows customers to monitor and manage their terminals online.

Michael Lawlor, USAT’s senior vice president of sales and business
development, said, "This agreement with Ice House America is a great example
of how USAT is reaching beyond traditional vending to leverage the breadth of
our cashless payment & telemetry services. In addition, we believe that Ice
House America’s growing footprint of locations is a great match for USAT’s
scalable and turnkey service model. We look forward to delivering maximum
value to Ice House America as we proceed.”
