Planet Payment Reports End of DCC Moratorium

Planet

Payment, Inc. (OTCQX: PLPM, LSE: AIM: PPT and PPTR), a leading

international multi-currency payment and data processor, reports that

Visa, Inc. has announced an end to its moratorium on Dynamic Currency

Conversion (“DCC”) with immediate effect.

“We believe that this positive development will facilitate our sales and

marketing efforts and entry into new markets,” commented Philip

Beck, Chairman of Planet Payment, Inc.Planet

Payment’s services help acquirers open new sales channels, merchants

sell more goods and services and cardholders enjoy informed choice and

transparency at the point-of-sale. We look forward to continuing the

growth of our business and revenues.”

As a result of this announcement, Planet

Payment’s acquirer customers are able to activate new accounts and

new merchant locations for DCC on both Visa and MasterCard in all

regions.

As discussed in previous Company

announcements, in April 2010 Visa issued new rules which limited the

addition of new DCC participants. The new rules also included additional

receipt disclosure requirements, as well as new registration and

certification programs. Visa yesterday ended the restriction on the

offering of DCC by new merchants and acquirers.

Visa also announced the immediate lifting of its long standing

restriction on DCC in Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa

(CEMEA). In Latin America, acquirers and merchants will be able to offer

the service effective 15 April 2011.

Planet

Payment’s Pay in Your Currency® DCC service provides

international Visa and MasterCard cardholders with the choice to pay in

their home currency at the point of sale. Planet Payment is now able to

offer Pay in Your Currency® on Visa transactions to new

acquirers in all regions around the world, building on its customer base

of more than 40 acquirers and processors in 16 countries stretching from

North America to the Middle East, South Africa and Asia Pacific.
