USA Technologies is a cashless vending machine provider that has seen an 89% increase in revenue from its self-service machines with digital advertisements that highlight Apple Pay as a means for making a contactless payment.

These NFC-equipped vending machines mean that consumers no longer have to have pocket chance on hand in order to buy everything from individual coffee cups and snacks to laundry services and parking.

By offering a connection to a user's mobile wallet, contactless payment systems like this one encourage consumers to spend money on a more frequent basis, especially since they know that the transaction will be simple, secure and above all else, extremely convenient. USA Technologies also reports that the targeted digital advertisements showing Apple Pay as an option "resulted in a 26% increase in overall transactions, a 22% increase in total revenue and a 12% increase in the total average ticket value."
