The company’s retail payment platform offers users acquiring, VAT refunds, processing and currency conversion all in a single device. Multiple payment methods are accepted on the platform, as well as the WeChat and Alipay digital wallets.

Planet noted its retail service has been further bolstered by android payment terminals which enable a more faster, efficient process at the till. The firm added its integrations with point-of-sale software providers means merchants can operate a fully integrated all-in-one retail service.
