Isis, the mobile wallet joint venture between US operators AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon, has partnered with USA Technologies to deploy 7,500 NFC-enabled vending machines.

The vending machines, powered by USA Technology's ePort tech will enableresidents of Austin, Texas, and Salt Lake City, Utah - the two cities currently piloting Isis's wallet - to pay via NFC on their mobile.

"Our work with Isis is a great example of how we are executing our comprehensive mobile payments strategy, including leveraging USAT's growing footprint of NFC enabled touch points to bring more value to our customers," said Stephen P. Herbert, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of USA Technologies. "We also believe that our work with Isis sends a clear message to vending companies in these two cities—and to the broader market we serve—that there is tremendous opportunity in cashless adoption. Through the Isis Mobile Wallet, we believe these merchants will have unparalleled new opportunity to attract consumers as well as participate in marketing programs with global brand names."
