Credit Card Payments at the PoS via Wirecard Bank AG

GRASBRUNN and MUNICH, Germany, November 25, 2010 - Whenever customers pay by Visa or MasterCard at Mister Minit outlets, the
transaction is immediately processed and settled by Wirecard Bank AG. The
same applies to payments using the Maestro card. As part of the current
Acquiring agreement, MINIT Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG in Monheim has
simultaneous access to the account management system of Munich-based Wirecard
AG. This enables merchants to view their daily updated terminal sales via the
central web-based application. They are also given assistance in managing
their transactions.

MISTER MINIT is placed inside shopping centers, supermarkets or subway
stations at key locations. With some 250 shops and 500 employees as well as
60 franchisees across Germany, this enterprise has developed into one of the
leading providers of handy services such as quick shoe repairs in Germany. At
MISTER MINIT branches throughout Germany, terminals from Wirecard Retail
Services GmbH have been accepting ec cash payments for years.

"Our business concept is based on top-notch service, prime quality and
reliability. We expect the same kind of sophistication from our service
providers. Wirecard Retail Services GmbH has always delivered compelling
proof of its excellence. It was a logical next step for us to mandate
Wirecard Bank AG as acquiring bank. Solutions from a single source ensure
that our processes in connection with the processing and settlement of
payments are optimally programmed," says Jens Gelhausen, Marketing Director
at MINIT Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG.

Wirecard Retail Services GmbH is responsible for clearing services via
POS card terminals for all the usual card-based payment methods available on
the market, such as ec cash (PIN), Maestro, and credit cards. The portfolio
comprises the very latest generation of stationary, portable and mobile
telephony-enabled card readers. In addition, the integration into primary
systems and in combination programs to foster customer loyalty is standard
fare. Thanks to Wirecard Bank AG, a Principal Member of VISA and MasterCard,
the necessary merchant acceptance facilities for Maestro and credit card
payments are available at the same time.

"Our business customers benefit from an integrated array of services that
ensures efficient processes and convenient coordination with dedicated
contact persons. A further benefit is the enhanced level of transparency. POS
clients with card acceptance facilities via the Wirecard Bank have access to
the account management system of Wirecard AG. This central, web-based
application gives customers a daily, up-to-date insight into their terminal
transactions. Statistics and reporting functions serve to make the necessary
administrative processes more convenient to handle," says Anne C. Signorino
, Managing Director of Wirecard Retail Services GmbH.


Mister Minit was established in Brussels in 1957 as an instant shoe
repair service and has developed into a global service brand. In 16 countries
and over 1,000 cities today, there are more than 1,300 service centers - in
the form of shops inside retail chains or department stores; and also in
stand-alone shops in highly frequented, key city locations. In 2008, the
organization generated approximately 250 million euros in global sales. The
biggest market for this group of companies is Germany, with 250 shops. The
range of services now extends from repairs to shoes and wrist watch straps
through changing batteries to passport photographs. The enterprise has set a
special milestone in the field of environmental protection. Mister Minit was
one of the first chain stores in its industry segment to join the shoe
recycling system I:CO - which stands for "I Collect".
