  USA Technologies Adds to List of Exclusive Customer Agreements

Business Wire

MALVERN, Pa. -- June 12, 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 that it has entered into three new exclusive
agreements with existing customers during the third quarter ending June 30,
2013, adding to the exclusive agreements already entered into in Fiscal 2013.

"We believe these exclusive agreements represent not only our customers'
confidence in USAT for cashless payment, telemetry and consumer engagement
services, but our customers' recognition that their cashless offering is
becoming a valuable business tool that requires their immediate attention,"
said Michael K. Lawlor, senior vice president of sales and business
development for USAT.

The three agreements call for exclusive use of USAT's comprehensive ePort
Connect® service and are all three years in duration. The new exclusive
customers, City Vending Company, Fresh Brew Group and American Food and
Vending Corporation, are all regional vending companies.

City Vending Company's chief financial officer, Tom Elich, commented, "The
revenue uplift that we are experiencing from our existing cashless locations
has been compelling. I am fully aware that cashless is the future and by
working with USAT, I know that I am working with a partner that has proven to
be reliable, responsive and ahead of the game in terms of additional offerings
such as loyalty that I can sell to my own customers."

Maria Foresteire, Purchasing Manager of American Food and Vending Corporation,
said “Our existing cashless deployments with USAT have been impactful. We also
recognize that cashless is clearly the future. Our customers are increasingly
requesting it and we anticipate that credit/debit card acceptance will be
incorporated into all new business going forward. USAT has worked with us to
understand our data and optimize our initial deployments of cashless and this
agreement strengthens that relationship as we continue to transition our
installed base to cashless.”

Fresh Brew Group’s chief operating officer, Steven Weyel, was initially
hesitant about cashless. “While cashless makes great sense, I really needed to
see my own data before I began any longer-term planning,” said Weyel. “USAT
has showed us how cashless has been successful for us and that success,
coupled with increasing demand for cashless from our customers, called for a
industry-leading partner like USAT as we move forward.”

"We are very pleased to welcome these companies to our growing list of
exclusive customers for our ePort Connect® service," said Lawlor. "As
exclusive USAT customers, they should be poised to benefit from USAT's
JumpStart program, new products, and our growing menu of services, including
our Knowledge Base reviews and our recently introduced loyalty and prepaid

As of March 31, 2013, USAT had over 4,500 customers and 196,000 connections to
its ePort Connect service, increases of 59% and 32%, respectively, since the
same period in the prior year. USAT continues to expand its leadership
position for cashless payment and telemetry for the small-ticket, unattended
market by working with its existing base of customers to drive new sales and
improved business performance by optimizing cashless payment technologies and
expanded offerings. To speak with a USAT sales representative, contact USAT at
