USA Technologies Expands ePort Connect to Meet Customer Demand for Online Payment Processing

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 commercial availability of ePort Online, another new capability added to USAT’s comprehensive ePort Connect® service. ePort Online gives customers a convenient way to accept credit/debit payments for goods and services online, from any computer or mobile device, and to retain secure, encrypted customer account information for scheduled and subscription payment.

ePort Online was designed to alleviate some of the time and effort USAT customers spend processing and following up on payment for invoiced services such as delivery services, equipment sales, catering services and more.

Through ePort Online, customers will have the ability to:

  • Improve account receivable collections by allowing their consumers to submit payment for orders immediately through an online payment portal;
  • Reduce invoicing processing time; and
  • More efficiently manage their accounts through “one-stop” access to online payment activity as well as their other credit/debit transaction activity supported through ePort Connect.
  • Coming soon: the ability to set up recurring online payments in a simple and secure ePort Online payment environment.

“ePort Online is another element of our new Integrated Payment Services model that is designed to extend the benefits our customers are experiencing with ePort Connect to other areas of their business,” said Mike Lawlor, USAT’s senior vice president of sales and business development.

“Very simply, as our customers' businesses expand, we've made it easy for them to expand with us,” added Lawlor. “Integrated Payment Services already includes payment services for micro markets and mobile applications, and now, with ePort Online, our customers can add online payment processing to the list of services supported by USAT.

“We are looking forward to introducing ePort Online to our 6,650 customers and anticipate that this added service capability will be well received. In fact, since launching ePort Online on June 11, we already have 500 user accounts signed up for this new service,” said Lawlor.

Integrated Payment Services , which was introduced earlier this year, is an extension of ePort Connect, and is designed to serve the needs of today’s more complex vending businesses by extending the benefits of ePort Connect across multiple aspects of a self-serve business. With USAT as a single source payment provider, Integrated Payment Services opens the door for customers to realize better business efficiencies, reduced cost and a heightened customer experience.

Integrated Payment Services are comprised of:

  • Traditional vending: Use of USAT’s turnkey ePort® and ePort Connect® cashless payment and telemetry and/or the ability to integrate third-party devices.
  • Micro-markets: The transfer of payment processing, through USAT’s growing list of certified micro-market technologies, to the ePort Connect service network.
  • Office coffee services and direct store deliveries: Use of USAT’s ePort Mobile™ solution to integrate payments “on the go” with other ePort Connect capabilities and operating data.
  • Dining Services: Integration of point of sale technologies, through USAT’s QuickConnect web service, to USAT’s ePort Connect service.
  • Back Office/Online Payment through ePort Online: The ability for businesses to accept one-time credit/debit payments for goods and services online and to retain secure, encrypted customer account information for scheduled and subscription payments.
  • Loyalty: Expansion of USAT’s loyalty and prepaid program, MORE., across the above-mentioned technologies supported by the ePort Connect service network for one, collective customer experience.

“ePort Online is a great example of how we are continuing to add value for customers with every connection to our ePort Connect service,” said Stephen P. Herbert, chairman and chief executive officer of USAT. “We believe ePort Online, as a standalone option or as part of a broader Integrated Payment Services model, further supports USAT’s differentiation in the marketplace and will continue to drive market adoption of our service – both within existing customers’ businesses and as an entry for new customers in additional markets.”

We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
