GREENSBORO, NC — USConnect,  a consortium of leading independent foodservice companies across the United States and Canada, has selected Nayax's VPOS Touch cashless payment and telemetry solution as an approved and recommended payment device for its network of operators across the United States and Canada.

The VPOS Touch (VPOS is "Virtual Point Of Sale")  is designed to serve as a complete cashless solution for operators of unattended points of sale. According to the manufacturer, the addition of the VPOS Touch to USConnect's recommended solutions provides consumers with optimal ease of use through its color touchscreen and wide variety of cashless payment options. The VPOS Touch enables consumers to use contact and contactless credit and debit cards, EMV chipcards and mobile payment applications, including those using Quick Response codes. Consumers who use the USConnectMe app will find it convenient to scan QR codes from the VPOS Touch's touch screen to quickly initiate payment with the app.
