COLUMBUS, Ga. -- April 25, 2013

TSYS Merchant Solutions, a top-ten merchant acquirer in the United States with
more than 55 years of experience in the payments industry, today announced the
launch of TSYS Pay in Your Currency^® and Shop in Your Currency™
multi-currency solutions, powered by Planet Payment, to TSYS Merchant
Solutions’ merchants. Planet Payment, Inc. (NASDAQ: PLPM) (LSE:AIM: PPT) is  a
leading international and multi-currency payment processor.

Pay in Your Currency, gives eligible international customers the choice of
paying in their home currency at the point of sale, offering significant
benefits to TSYS merchants and their customers. Customers are handed a
receipt, or pointed to an electronic terminal which displays the transaction
amounts in U.S. dollars and their home currency, with the daily exchange rate
and other service details. The customer chooses their currency on the receipt
or device. International travelers enjoy a more comfortable shopping
experience by knowing the amount of payment in their home currency, while
simultaneously providing the merchants with an opportunity to increase their
product range and thus increase their sales.

TSYS Merchant Solutions will also launch Shop in Your Currency, which enables
e-commerce merchants to more effectively target foreign markets and more sales
from international customers. This solution allows merchants to localize their
offering and simplify the shopping experience for international customers who
view pricing and pay in their home currencies, while the merchant receives
settlement in U.S. dollars as they do today.

“Multi-currency solutions help our clients improve the payment experience for
their customers by providing the option to shop and pay in their own currency.
It is a win for us, our clients and their customers when we offer a product
that improves the experience for all,” said Chris McNulty, group executive of
sales, TSYS Merchant Solutions. “Planet Payment is a partner that truly
understands our business. They enable our customers with a multi-currency
solution that adds value to our relationship and ultimately improves the
businesses’ bottom line. Improving people's lives with payment solutions and
helping our customers grow their business is part of our “People-Centered
Payments” brand promise. Offering multi-currency solutions from Planet Payment
allows us to do both.”

“Planet Payment is thrilled that TSYS Merchant Solutions will be expanding our
multi-currency solutions presence in the U.S.,” said Philip Beck, chairman and
chief executive officer, Planet Payment. “We believe that our solutions will
provide TSYS’ merchants with the tools to increase customer service and
improve profitability while improving the shopping experience for
international customers.”
