ADVAM and USA Technologies Launch EMV Payment Solution for Australian Vending Market


A partnership focused on delivering one of the best EMV certified
payment solutions.

Technologies, Inc
. (NASDAQ:USAT), a premier digital payment,
logistics, and back office service provider in the self-service retail
market, and ADVAM,
a global leader in the supply of gateway payment solutions to the
vending and self-service markets, today announced a partnership which
has resulted in the development and launch of a fully automated, EMV
certified, cashless payment gateway and vending management solution to
the Australian unattended retail market.

USAT and ADVAM anticipate expanding USAT's more than 969,000 connections
worldwide, to offer a turn-key, end-to-end cashless payment and vending
management solution in Australia. USAT and ADVAM have selected the
Ingenico iUC285 card readers to not only equip Australian vending
operators with an EMV solution to accept both chip and magstripe, but
also enable the use of digital payments such as Apple Pay, Google Pay,
and NFC contactless capabilities.

Following the sale of the Smith's PepsiCo business to the independent
bottlers who are members of the consortium, iVend Group (IVG), USAT has
been delivering cashless payment and vending management solutions to
several members of the group. USAT is eager to leverage the exclusive
partnership with ADVAM to support businesses within IVG to expand their
unattended retail services, by allowing them to accept more forms of
payment, and enabling EMV payments in order to reduce the consumers'
burdens of handling cash. USAT and ADVAM will work towards expanding
their partnership beyond the IVG members, to allow operators all across
Australia to make the move to an automated cashless solution
incorporating the USAT telemetry device and supporting services, and the
ADVAM UnattendedPayments solution.

"We are excited to be partnering with ADVAM as they have lead the way in
secure gateway payment processing within the Australia market, and we
look forward to leveraging their expertise to offer our existing
Australian customers at IVG an EMV-certified payment solution," said
Mike Marett, SVP Business Development, USA Technologies. "At USAT we
strive to provide our customers with solutions that help them increase
revenues and reduce operational costs. This partnership would enable us
to deliver on that promise."

The solution would deliver a reliable and secure payment processing
service, while also allowing unattended retail operators to benefit from
expanded services such as logistics and route management, merchandising
and pre-kitting, as well as providing them with overall vend management
software tools – all while providing consumers with a more convenient
way to pay.

Paul Sidwell, Regional Managing Director for ADVAM comments, "ADVAM and
USAT have been working together for some time to ensure we can deliver
an integrated solution that delivers innovation to our vending
customers. The combined solutions would not only enable our vending
customers to reduce operating costs, but to deliver an enhanced service
to their customers, ultimately leading to an increase in sales."

ADVAM and USAT will be showcasing their combined solutions at the
Australian Vending Associations 2018 Vending Expo in Melbourne from 26th
– 27th July.
