USA Technologies, a provider of wireless, cashless payment and machine to machine (M2M) telemetry solutions for small-ticket, self-serve retailing industries, is expanding its cashless payment and M2M services in the kiosk market with electric vehicle stations sold by existing customer, Eaton (view press release). Eaton, whose AC Level 2 Electric Vehicle charging stations already includes an option for USAT’s ePort technology for cashless payment acceptance, has recently added the company’s new DC Quick Charger to this cashless offering. This means that Eaton can offer an option for magnetic credit card swipe acceptance, while allowing consumers to pay through time-based intervals or a flat rate.
“Our work with Eaton is an excellent example of how we are extending the versatility of our ePort technology and services to the unattended kiosk market,” commented Michael Lawlor, SVP of Sales and Business Development for USA Technologies. “We believe that kiosk solutions are growing in both popularity and functionality fuelled, in part, by improved wireless capabilities and the ability of kiosk consumers to use forms of payment other than cash. USAT’s turnkey approach to cashless was specifically designed for this unattended space.”
