ATLANTA, April 22, 2013

ATLANTA, April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Global Payments Inc. [NYSE: GPN], a
leader in electronic transaction payment processing, today announced the
launch of HomeCurrencyPay, a Global Payments Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC)
solution for merchants throughout the United States.


HomeCurrencyPay offers merchants the ability to provide their customers with
the choice and convenience of paying for goods and/or services in their home
currency, seamless Point-of-Sale (POS) implementation and instant conversion
of 26 different currencies at the POS. The solution operates on Equinox
Payments' T4220, T4210 and T4205 terminals.

"Global Payments makes currency conversion easier for merchants by
implementing a non-treasury model, which prevents merchants from having to
open and manage a unique bank account for each international currency they
wish to support," said Gene Distler, Vice President - Product Development &
Marketing, Global Payments U.S. "HomeCurrencyPay also simplifies the process
for the merchants' customers as international cardholders appreciate knowing
the exact cost of the goods and services and the exchange rate prior to
completing purchases."

HomeCurrencyPay, powered by Planet Payment Inc.'s Pay in Your Currency®
technology, also provides POS reporting in U.S. Dollars for easy
reconciliation; facilitates a simple check out process as the user interface,
sales receipt and cardholder's statement reflect the same currency and amount;
and creates an ongoing revenue stream from merchant credits on every foreign
currency transaction processed.

Global Payments also offers DCC services across Asia, Spain, the United
Kingdom and Canada.
