MALVERN, Pa. -- April 29, 2013

USA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: USAT), (“USAT”), a leader of wireless,
cashless payment and M2M telemetry solutions for small-ticket, self-serve
retailing industries, highlighted its expanded suite of cashless payment
services and next generation ePorts at the NAMA OneShow in Las Vegas last
week. Visitors to USAT’s booth were continuous, as customers stopped to learn
about the latest mobile payment and consumer engagement tools now incorporated
into USAT's ePort Connect® service for cashless payment and telemetry. The new
services are designed to capitalize on the new world of opportunities made
possible by connecting businesses to consumers, and consumers to businesses,
as industries like vending transition from cash to cashless forms of payment,
particularly mobile payment.

Highlighted services included:

  *USAT’s new  loyalty and prepaid program. Through USAT’s new loyalty &
    prepaid program, business owners have the ability to provide alternative
    payments capabilities, reach consumers directly, impacting buying behavior
    before the point of purchase, and reward consumers when they do make a
    purchase at their machines. These capabilities are designed to help
    increase sales and participation at customer locations and utilize
    features such as cash back rewards on purchases, exclusive offers,
    promotions and product information. Customers can also opt to participate
    in upgrade options for customized branding.
  *USAT’s mobile marketing app gives vending operators the ability to
    heighten the consumer experience, especially for today’s growing smart
    phone-oriented generation. Utilizing technologies of Verizon Wireless, the
    mobile app is designed to integrate with USAT’s loyalty and prepaid
    program. The mobile app enables consumers to watch how their points
    accumulate, send loyalty points to friends and locate their favorite
    vending machines.
  *USAT’s mobile payment, loyalty program and “Fifth Vend Free” promotion.
    Following its successful pilot with Isis in Salt Lake City and Austin,
    USAT is expanding via the addition of a loyalty program. Under the “Fifth
    Vend Free” promotion announced by USAT and Isis, customers are 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. The USAT mobile payment and loyalty program will
    integrate USAT’s installed base of over 100,000 contactless cashless
    payment terminals with Isis’ SmartTap™ mobile commerce technology, for
    rewards acceptance and redemption.

USAT also demonstrated a new generation of cashless payment devices at the
NAMA OneShow—the ePort G9 and ePort G10—designed to bring more value to
businesses through expanded acceptance options, consumer engagement offerings
and advanced diagnostics.

“Our goal at the NAMA OneShow was to demonstrate to our customers how USAT is
continuing to deliver value on all fronts—from our hardware to exciting new
services that we believe expand their potential to succeed,” said Maeve
McKenna Duska, USAT’s Vice President of Marketing. “Forward-thinking
businesses across the country are cashing in on the value that a connected
world can bring to their business. For example, programs that reward consumers
for their loyalty or incentivize consumers away from other retailers by
promoting their favorite product haven’t been utilized in this historically
cash-based market. A vending business never knew who its consumers were, what
they bought or why. Now, these businesses can benefit from a connection to the
consumer through prepaid and loyalty programs and mobile applications that
provide anywhere, anytime access to their customers.”

“We believe that the growing number of ‘always addressable’ consumers enabled
by mobile technologies creates an almost immeasurable opportunity for the
self-service, small ticket market,” said Stephen P. Herbert, USAT’s Chairman
and Chief Executive Officer. “USAT’s commitment to innovation has always been
aligned around the needs of our customer and that means keeping them connected
to the buying habits of tomorrow’s consumers, particularly in mobile payment.
We anticipate that the new offerings introduced at the NAMA OneShow last week
will entice the consumer in ways never possible in a cash-based environment,
taking cashless payment to a whole new level—from a payment alternative, to an
opportunistic platform for revenue growth and competitive differentiation for
customers, as well as for USAT.”
