USA Technologies Announces ePort® G10-S, Unattended Retailing’s First Cashless Payment Solution with LTE Wireless Services

USA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:USAT) ("USAT"), a payment technology provider of cashless and mobile transactions in self-serve retail, today announced the availability of the ePort® Connect Platform’s G10-S Series, which has been certified for use on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network. This latest generation ePort introduces advances in cashless payment processing, as well as mobile wallet and consumer engagement services. The new features are designed to capitalize on advances in both wireless technology and smartphone devices that make connecting businesses to consumers, and consumers to businesses, as frictionless as ever.

Highlighted services includes:

  • The ePort G10-S is the first 4G LTE cashless payment device in the unattended small-ticket retail industry. Nationwide availability of the G10-S is expected in February 2017, and would enable USAT to offer its customers faster processing and enhanced functionality, and make it possible to support the sophisticated value-added services of ePort Connect as technology and consumer requirements evolve.
  • The nationwide availability of the G10-S would enable USAT to offer its customers enhanced functionality for payment and consumer engagement applications that require higher speeds and large data loads; and make it possible to support certain add-on features as technology and customer requirements evolve. Another major advantage of upgrading to LTE is that it provides a minimum ten-year network life span.
  • USAT's ePort G10-S features Apple Pay loyalty integration with the MORE. loyalty program. The ePort G10-S device arrives ready to accept the next generation MORE. loyalty and payroll deduct platform via Apple Pay, which was announced and demonstrated last week at CES 2017.
  • The ePort G10-S operates on a stronger wireless signal than ever. The new design includes a second “diversity antenna” giving it the ability to connect to wireless networks over farther distances than devices with a single antenna.
  • Through USAT's augmented MORE. loyalty program, brands have the ability to reach targeted consumers directly, impacting buying behavior through their smartphones. The push messaging features, enhanced by new functionality in the G10-S, can even reward consumers instantly for acting upon the messaging. These capabilities are designed to help operators increase sales and participation at the point of sale, collect and report on purchasing behavior for brands, and seamlessly reward consumers in a relevant and targeted manner.
  • USAT's platform gives vending operators the ability to accept many payment methods, whether a consumer prefers to use credit, debit, Apple, Android or Samsung Pay or even one of the many closed loop loyalty, campus cards and payroll deduct programs integrated with USAT’s MORE. program, ePort devices are ready to accept the payment in a PCI Level 1 secure environment and the G10-S processes the transaction faster than ever before.

“Investing in 4G LTE and mobile wallet loyalty means investing in the future - not just ours but our customers’,” said Stephen P. Herbert, Chairman and CEO, USA Technologies. “By adding G10-S to our portfolio we believe that we can offer an even more robust suite of services with greater capabilities, combined with powerful processing and an enhanced consumer loyalty experience. USA Technologies is continually striving to add value for our customers by staying ahead of the technology curve. G10-S provides our customers with the latest in wireless technology as well as providing them access to our growing suite of services.”

USAT’s ePort Connect provides seamless, turnkey cashless payments and telemetry services at nearly 450,000 locations nationwide. The company currently has one of the largest footprints of NFC-enabled mobile payments acceptance points in the U.S. market with over 300,000 NFC-equipped merchant locations at corporate complexes, universities, laundromats, in-store kiosks, and theme parks, among others.

The ePort G10-S was certified for use on the Verizon Wireless network at the Verizon Labs facility in Bedminster, N.J.
