NEW ORLEANS -- May 1, 2013

USA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: USAT) (“USAT”), will be introducing its
recently expanded ePort Connect® service for cashless payment, M2M telemetry
and consumer engagement services uniquely designed for the small-ticket,
self-serve retailing industries at the 2013 ETA Annual Meeting & Expo, April
30-May 2, at the New Orleans Convention Center in New Orleans.

“Based on industry sources and our own knowledge of the markets we serve, we
believe the small-ticket unattended retail market in the U.S. generates over
$119 billion in annual transaction dollars from largely cash-based
businesses,” said USAT’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Stephen P.
Herbert. “As a result, we believe these businesses represent an enormous
opportunity for the payments industry as these market segments—vending, kiosk,
laundry, car wash and others—continue to transition to credit, debit and
contactless forms of payment, including mobile.”

Connections to USAT’s ePort Connect service have experienced a 43% three year
CAGR (compound annual growth rate) during the calendar years 2010 to 2012.
ePort Connect service enables self-service terminals to accept traditional mag
stripe as well as contactless forms of payment, handles all elements of
transaction processing, and allows customers to remotely monitor their
unattended retail locations online to help run their businesses more
efficiently, all with a high level of data security.

ePort Connect was designed to be easily managed and scalable as businesses
continue to transition to cashless payments in the self-service, unattended
market. Customers benefit from:

  *The ease and convenience of a turnkey system
  *PCI compliance
  *Integrated wireless activation, distribution and account management
  *Pre-negotiated, discounted fees on small-ticket purchases
  *A single, blended rate for transaction processing
  *24 x 7 customer service
  *Web-based portal for reporting cash and cashless sales activity
  *Value-added services including deployment planning, two-tier pricing
    capabilities and over-the-air updates

In addition, USAT has recently expanded its suite of services to include:

  *Loyalty and Prepaid Program, including customized options
  *Mobile Marketing app, including a machine locator developed using
    technology from Verizon
  *Mobile payment and “Fifth Vend Free” loyalty promotion (recently announced
    by USAT and Isis)
  *ePort Mobile—a mobile based, payment acceptance solution for customers “on
    the go”

“We are excited to be at the ETA show this year, as it represents the first
time USAT has had an opportunity to showcase the breadth of our services and
what we view as our unique approach to serving the needs of the emerging
small-ticket, unattended market,” added Herbert. “We believe that our one-stop
shop approach to serving our customers has made us a leader in this market
sector for cashless payment services, and we are intently focused on expanding
that leadership to other markets that today are still at the early stages of
cashless transition.“
