LAS VEGAS -- April 25, 2013

USA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: USAT), (“USAT”), a leader of wireless,
cashless payment and M2M telemetry solutions for small-ticket, self-serve
retailing industries, kicked off what USAT believes to be the largest mobile
payment and loyalty program for the U.S. vending industry this week at the
NAMA OneShow in Las Vegas. Loyalty programs can help drive traffic, repeat
business and brand loyalty. Since U.S. vending has traditionally been a
cash-based industry, consumer engagement tools such as loyalty programs that
market directly to the consumer were largely impossible before.

The USAT mobile payment and loyalty program will integrate USAT’s installed
base of over 100,000 NFC-enabled cashless payment terminals with Isis’
SmartTap™ mobile commerce technology, for rewards acceptance and redemption.
The Isis Mobile Wallet™ enables mobile payments through an NFC-ready terminal
and allows consumers to redeem offers and loyalty with the tap of their smart
phone.

Under the “Fifth Vend Free” promotion being announced by USAT, and Isis,
customers would be eligible to receive free products from vending operators
based upon loyalty rewards earned by using the Isis Mobile Wallet™ to pay for
a purchase at a qualifying terminal.

“After USAT’s successful pilot with Isis in Salt Lake City and Austin, we are
extremely excited to expand via the addition of a loyalty program,” said
Stephen P. Herbert Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of USA Technologies.
“In our view, the USAT mobile payment and upcoming loyalty program is yet
another way for operators to optimize their cashless payment platform as a
tool for driving top line growth. It reflects our commitment to deliver more
value to our customers with every USAT connection, with the added benefit of
making vending fun for the consumer. In our view, it’s a win-win for everyone
involved.”

PGI Services, a Salt Lake City vending, coffee and micro market service
provider, has been preparing for mobile-based consumer engagement tools to
drive traffic to its machines.

“We took advantage of USAT’s mobile payment launch with Isis in our city
because we know the demographics of our consumers, particularly in areas such
as the Salt Lake City airport and business centers, are increasingly
smart-phone oriented,” said Mike Brown, President of PGI Services. “We are now
over 80 percent cashless and can’t wait to incorporate the consumer engagement
programs enabled by mobile payment to leverage our cashless platform even
further. In my view, anything we can do to make it easier and rewarding for
customers to purchase our products is smart business.”

“Loyalty programs that allow consumers to be rewarded for repeat purchases are
essentially uncharted territory for the vending industry. Connecting these
businesses with their consumer creates a whole new marketing paradigm for the
industry,” said Jim Stapleton, Chief Sales Officer for Isis. “It’s an exciting
time for this market sector and we are looking forward to working with USAT in
making this a success for everyone involved.”
