The USAT Story

Transforming the unattended world.

Founded in 1992 with the goal of providing cashless acceptance to the traditionally cash-driven vending market, USA Technologies forged what has become today’s unattended retail movement. What began as a solution focused on unlocking the potential of cashless payments in vending, has evolved into the first, all-in-one platform to power unattended retail operations, from hardware to software for all kinds of brands.

Today, the autonomous retail experience is constantly expanding to new verticals and enables brands and merchants to work in new ways. We are keeping our customers ahead of the adoption curve – meeting them on location, partnering with them to grow in new markets, and helping them reach new customers.

USAT is constantly advancing the way companies across the globe manage, optimize and automate the critical decisions made on a daily basis. We are committed to helping businesses grow smarter, better, and faster than ever before. Our mission is to create, innovate, and build products that subtly change the way we live.
