"ePortGO is designed to be much more than a payment device; it turns a smartphone into a dynamic business terminal, essentially eliminating the need for costly, multi-hardware investments, redundant processes and higher "card not present" processing rates. And, for those operators that already take credit/debit cards, we believe the integrated functionalities of ePortGO and USAT's proven expertise in cashless payment services can take fare payment to a much greater level in the taxi and for-hire vehicle industry."
