- Payment Suite to provide payment processing

Tuesday 10th March 2009 - NEOVIA Financial Plc (LSE: NEO), the
independent global online payments business, has been chosen by three
separate county councils to process payments for products and services
using the NEOVIA Payment Suite.

The NEOVIA Payment Suite features the NETBANX international payments
gateway, the NETELLER e-wallet and Net+(TM) cards. NETBANX allows
merchants to accept card and non-card payments through multiple channels
including online, contact centres, mail order and via automated phone
systems. The NETELLER e-wallet allows consumers to spend securely online
as well as allowing merchants to increase customer lifetime value. Net+
cards allow merchants to extend customer loyalty and lifetimes. As well
as cards, the NEOVIA Payment Suite supports online payments direct from
consumers' online bank accounts using the POLi service.

The three separate new contract wins are:

West Sussex County Council provides services for more than 750,000
residents in the South of England. NEOVIA will be providing its payment
suite, which means the council will be able to efficiently handle
payments for specialist publications and research services.

Kent County Council looks after one of the largest counties in England
with 1.3 million residents. As one of the many services it provides,
Kent County Council offers one-day training courses for anyone who wants
to learn to drive a minibus, which can now be paid for over the internet
using the payment suite.

Oxfordshire County Council, which employs over 20,000 staff to deliver
services to Oxfordshire's 615,000 people, is using the payment suite so
that students can pay online and enrol on adult education courses.

Dan Starr, Executive Vice President of the Merchant Services division at
NEOVIA, said: "Local government organisations are increasingly looking
to increase their revenue from commercial activities to lighten the load
on the council tax payer, and therefore need to process payments
efficiently."
