    Massively Oversold

    A press release on their NFC solution seems like a no brainer to me :) and yes I expect earnings to be awesome. If your sadistic wish comes to be I will have to pick up more because it would be foolish not to at this price.

    I'm glad you spoke with Graham. This is such a buy here it's ridiculous. I have to expect a major pop next week. I'm hoping they put out a press release.

    I'm seeing articles that TCS reported earnings after close yesterday and beat expected estimates? Google it. Did they report yesterday after hours?

  • Planet Payments offers a mobile NFC payment solution, which does not require additional hardware to be installed at the point of sale. Can't post link but this is a huge positive for PLPM.

    Apple Pay threat?

    PLPM is going to make me pull my hair out but to answer your question, no it's not a threat. It could be an opportunity, will put my ear to the ground and see what I can find out. Not buying any more until Carl does but 100% holding.

    Twitter dives into e-commerce

    They would be interested for their payments platform plus the MCP Pay In Your Currency- DCC (=revenue). BTW- After hours there's 28k on the bid at $2.40. Hopefully that bodes well for tomorrow.
    Straight from their website:
    Planet Payment delivers secure payment processing services to 45 of the worlds’ leading banks and other payment services providers, across 22 countries. These solutions help acquirers attract more merchants and enhance profitability. Our customer base of 60 acquiring banks and processors stretches from North America, to the Middle East, to Asia Pacific, including China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Malaysia and India.

    Our proprietary currency-neutral platform offers seamless delivery of end-to-end processing solutions around the world. With a single global processing platform, we are able to respond quickly to emerging technology, evolving security and card scheme standards.

    The engine behind Planet Payment’s product offering is our powerful transaction platform, which we offer to banks and technology providers on an outsourced basis.

  • Facebook and Vantiv are each on each the verge of acquiring international payment platforms and NOW Twitter dives into ecomm (see todays article). Plus there's the Visa partnership and they could easily snap up Planet. One of these companies WILL acquire Planet. There just aren't that many international players and Planet is the best DCC and MCP provider AND has Brazil which in our industry is huge!

    I think just Consolidating after the great earnings run up. Earnings were great and Carl was excited to be able to announce new acquirers in the coming quarters so go forward sounds great too.

    Because of what they have coming in and the buzz in the industry about a potential acquisition/expansion. They do not have decent competition... I have personally vetted all companies that provide the same solutions as Planet.... no comparison... there is one that is close but weak in the US and no sales force here. Planet is the US Leader

    In addition to DCC keep in mind that shop in your currency online known in the industry as MCP is critical to all processors right now. Planet's partnership with Cielo ahead of the World Cup will drive a lot of revenue going forward. For example Cielo acquired Merchant e-solutions in the US. This processor focused on ecomm merchant processing and they are also aggressively expanding across all verticals not just ecomm anymore. Merchant E's differentiator when selling is their intl. processing. It's all about international capabilities for processors now and while consumers all over the world are shopping online MCP is critical for merchants to offer so consumers can pay in their currency- it's expected by consumers and processors are scrambling to offer it ASAP. Planet's international processing platform, MCP and DCC are in my opinion poised perfectly for acquisition right now but even without an acquisition there is no doubt that their revenues are about to blast off with their new customers, partnerships and integrations. It's the $6 for minimum of 30 days by May 2015 requirement for Carl's options that I continue to hold looking toward the near term.

    I'm on the payment processor side of the business. DCC is a very,very hot product and has been growing steadily for the past 10 or 12 years in the US (has been a staple in Europe for more than 25 years). Retailers love the additional revenue stream and consumers want to pay in their own local currency. Whether big box, specialty retail, airline, car rental etc the ROI is fantastic and provides a service that consumers with foreign based credit cards (more than you would think) want and are now expecting in the US. Planet has Vantiv, TSYS, Global Payments, Moneris and many more as customers for DCC. In fact, I don't think Moneris is live yet but they will be offering it.

    There are few competitors in the space, I believe that none are US based interestingly... the competitions solutions and reporting capabilities are weak in comparison to Planet.

    The volume has been low lately. I'm looking forward to earnings, Carl knows what he needs to do and I'm looking forward to the call.

    There is no way PLPM's share price should be in the 2's or even $3's based on fundamentals and their growing impressive customer base. Everyone should realize what Carl's mission is. I feel like I want to go into PR for PLPM. It's a ridiculous buy at these levels and that's why I continue to add- I believe this could be a triple or quadruple in the very near term.

    As mentioned I'm in the payments industry, know the company well, the high demand for their solutions and the many acquisitions going on across the industry as every company is 100% focused on expanding international processing capabilities, DCC and MCP right now so I know first hand that the time is now and riper than ever.
