Razorpay公司主要解决商户面临的各种支付难题，包括赔付支出、定期收款、托收结算和发票管理，同时还能帮助旗下商家创造新的收入渠道。现阶段，该公司正试图从支付网关提供商转变为小型企业和公司的综合支付平台。该公司成立于2014年，两位联合创始人分别是Shashank Kumar和Mathur，目前旗下拥有6.5万名客户，主要服务于中小企业，比如Goibibo、Zomato、Nykaa、Quikr、Chai Point、UrbanClap和NestAway等创业公司以及政府和教育部门。除了在产品和技术方面加大投入之外，该公司还希望利用这笔最新融资把业务拓展到东南亚等新兴市场。目前，Razorpay公司的业务月增长率为25-30%，他们下一阶段目标，是在今年年底之前将其商户数量增加至2万家。
Payments solutions firm Razorpay today said it has raised USD 20 million in funding led by Tiger Global and Y Combinator.
The series B round also saw participation from Matrix Partners. The company has raised USD 31.5 million till date, including from the present round.
“We will use the funds for our next phase of growth by scaling products and bolstering our technology and expanding to newer markets like South East Asia,” Razorpay CEO & Co- Founder Harshil Mathur told PTI.
He added that the company has been witnessing 25-30 per cent growth month-on-month, which it hopes to continue.
The company had previously raised USD 11.5 million in series A round from the same marquee investors along with 33 angel investors, and a strategic investment by MasterCard in 2016.
“The cash-heavy traditional sectors and new age businesses require comprehensive and powerful products that enable more than just payment acceptance and help them scale money movement through technology. And it is these sectors which we believe will lead the next phase of surge in digital payments in India,” he said.
Founded in December 2014, Razorpay began operations by offering online businesses in India the technology to accept all payment modes. It has a team of over 130 employees. Its merchant partners include GoIbibo, Yatra, Zomato, Zoho, DSP Blackrock, Zerodha, among others.
“We have seen a strong growth in our merchant base as well, which has grown from 20,000 in 2016 to 65,000 by 2017.
We expect this to grow to 2 lakh this year,” Mathur said.
He added that Razorpay expects more than 10 times growth in volume and revenue by next fiscal year and predicts the newly-launched product suite to contribute 30 per cent of its revenue.
He however declined to comment on the revenue details and valuation of the company post the fund raise.
