- ABOUT -

Planet is a payments partner focused on international spenders with a mission to simplify complex payments, helping people spend more. 

Founded over 30 years ago in Ireland, Planet now employs over 1,500 staff in 64 markets across five continents.  Serving over 500,000 merchants and 100 partner banks, Planet manages in excess of 500 million transactions worth more than €24 billion in value.

Helping merchants, acquirers and shoppers navigate the complex world of international payments, Planet partners with businesses to exceed the needs of their international customers.

Following strategic acquisitions, including Planet Payment in 2017 for $250 million, the group rebranded in 2018 as Planet to bring multiple businesses into one brand with a clear vision and business strategy. With a vision of being the best rated partner for service, innovation and technology leadership, Planet’s goal is to deliver an exceptional share of international shopper spend to its customers through its service, technology and people.  Underpinning this is a continued passion to retain its cultural DNA.

As Planet continues its growth phase, the focus is on establishing itself as a major player in international payments across all geographies with a unified proposition on a single product platform, whether Point of Sale or eCommerce.  Alongside this, Planet continues to consolidate and grow its Tax Free market position, and also its currency conversion and acquiring revenue streams.

Eurazeo will contribute its expertise in the luxury, retail and travel & leisure sectors, as well as its international network, notably via its presence in China and Brazil. Eurazeo’s proven ability in conducting external growth transactions and accompanying its investments in new geographies will also be of significant benefit in achieving this ambition.
