PT Bank Central Asia and Planet Payment Launch Pay in Your Currency(R) in
Indonesia

JAKARTA, Indonesia and LONG BEACH, N.Y., Dec. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PT
Bank Central Asia Tbk (IDX:BBCA), one of the leading commercial banks in
Indonesia, and Planet Payment, Inc. (Nasdaq:PLPM) (LSE:PPT), a leading
international and multi-currency payment processor, today announced the launch
of Planet Payment's Pay in Your Currency® service to BCA's portfolio of
merchants across Indonesia.

Pay in Your Currency can offer significant benefits to BCA's merchants and
their customers. With Pay in Your Currency, eligible customers are offered the
convenience of paying in their home currency at the point-of-sale. The
customers are handed a receipt which shows the transaction amounts in
Indonesian Rupiah and their home currency, together with the exchange rate and
other service details. The customer then makes their currency choice on the
receipt. With Pay in Your Currency, international travelers can enjoy a more
comfortable shopping experience by knowing what they are paying in their home
currency, while simultaneously providing the merchant with an opportunity to
reduce the processing costs incurred on these transactions.

Tourism is an important component of the Indonesian economy and the levels of
inbound international travel have been steadily increasing over the past
several years. In 2010, a total of 7 million international travelers visited
Indonesia, increasing 9% in 2011 to 7.65 million visitors (Indonesia Central
Statistics Bureau). In 2012, 8 million international travelers visited
Indonesia and the upward trend is expected to continue in 2013 to a projected
8.5 to 9 million visitors (Travel Daily News, 4 January 2013). Pay in Your
Currency allows BCA's merchants to provide enhanced customer service to this
important customer segment.

"Many of our merchants, including those in the hospitality, restaurant and
retail sectors, count on international customers for a significant portion of
their business," said Santoso, Senior General Manager of BCA. "We believe that
Pay in Your Currency is an important addition to our suite of products and
will allow our merchants to better serve their international clientele by
delivering a more comfortable and convenient shopping experience."

"Planet Payment is excited to partner with BCA to deliver our Pay in Your
Currency solution to the dynamic Indonesian market," said Philip Beck,
Chairman and CEO of Planet Payment. "Our goal is to provide solutions that
transform credit card processing into a tool to drive sales and improve
operational efficiencies and we look forward to working with BCA to rollout
Pay in Your Currency to BCA's merchant portfolio."
