  USA Technologies’ Web Service Simplifies Cashless Integration for
  Micro-Market Offering, Revive Self Checkout

Business Wire

MALVERN, Pa. -- October 3, 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 Revive Self Checkout (“Revive”),
utilizing USAT’s Web service, QuickConnect™, has completed integration of its
micro-market offering with USAT’s cashless payment and telemetry service,
ePort Connect®. Customers of Revive can now seamlessly link their micro-market
credit and debit card processing with their other cashless locations supported
by USAT to maximize their business processes and technologies.

USAT’s QuickConnect is a Web service that provides developers that already
have an application with Internet connectivity and a display mechanism, such
as a kiosk or smartphone, with streamlined certification to USAT’s PCI
compliant, one-stop shop cashless payment service, ePort Connect. Revive is a
point of sale technology for micro-market applications, a self checkout-based
vending offering geared for areas where fresh produce and similar items are in
demand.

Adam Arthur, founding partner and chief developer for Revive, commented, “My
approach has always been about providing a feature-rich point of sale kiosk
with a flexible architecture that allows the customer to manage service
options on their own. As a vending operator myself, I believe our open
approach lends itself to the most value for the customer. Since we started
selling the Revive Self Checkout in 2011, the number one question we received
from customers in this regard was if – and when – the customer could integrate
their other cashless vending locations that were utilizing USAT’s ePort
Connect service with our micro-market solution. Naturally, we are extremely
pleased that we can now accommodate those requests.

“Going forward, we are recommending USAT as a preferred solution because they
are so easy to work with. I’ve integrated with a handful of other cashless
payment providers and USAT’s Web service, QuickConnect, is the easiest credit
card provider to setup,” said Arthur. “With other credit card providers, you
need to fill out lengthy forms and the pricing is often confusing. Our
customers love the 'straight forward' approach USAT offers.”

USAT’s ePort Connect service supports the cashless payment needs for a variety
of self-service applications across multiple industries. Recent QuickConnect
examples include USAT’s new service relationship with Setomatic Systems in
commercial laundry and ePortGO™, an integrated dispatch, navigation and mobile
payment solution for the taxi and for-hire vehicle industry (see video on
ePortGO.com).

“We introduced QuickConnect in 2012 to help developers capitalize on the
cashless technology trend and the growing demand for self-service as consumers
place a greater value on their time,” said Cary Sagady, USAT’s senior vice
president of product management and network services. “USAT’s customers
benefit from integration options depending on their connectivity requirements,
an array of technical support tools and, most importantly, swift access to our
PCI compliant, ePort Connect suite of cashless and contactless payment
services. QuickConnect is all about helping them develop smarter and faster,
with accelerated access to our ePort Connect service.”
