YellowPepper是一家主打拉丁美洲市场的移动支付和手机银行服务商。近日,该公司宣布完成新一轮战略融资,由全球支付服务商Visa领投,其他企业和机构跟投。

本次融资为D轮融资。在这次融资中,初创公司YellowPepper共获得1,250万美元(约合人民币8006.25万元)的战略投资,这是Visa对拉丁美洲地区移动支付领域的首例投资。本轮融资的完成,将为该地区创造越来越多的移动支付机会,并进一步宣传推广Visa旗下的Visa API和Visa DirectP2P汇款转账等服务。

Visa拉丁美洲和加勒比地区总裁Eduardo Coello表示:“通过对YellowPepper的投资,我们希望为该地区更广泛的合作伙伴和客户提供Visa的最佳技术和能力......Visa一直在寻找新的投资。通过对外融资,我们可以帮助客户加速技术创新,并以全新的方式为客户提供技术支持。YellowPepper在拉丁美洲地区拥有丰富的经验,并建立了庞大的客户群。鉴于这些优势,YellowPepper就顺理成章地成为我们构建移动支付未来的理想合作伙伴,”

Visa对YellowPepper的投资是其全球战略的一部分。Visa的全球战略愿景旨在通过对YellowPepper公司生态系统的开发,进一步强化对拉丁美洲地区各种新的合作伙伴的支持,以“重新定义并提升全球数百万消费者的购物体验”。本轮投资完成后,YellowPepper公司的资金总额将超过5000万美元(约合人民币3.20415亿元)。

在投资YellowPepper之前,Visa还先后完成了对数字银行SolarisBank、美国开放式支付平台Marqeta、金融科技公司Chain、瑞典金融科技公司Klarna、美国移动支付公司Square和移动支付公司Stripe等企业的融资。

Visa led a funding round in Latin America-focused mobile payments startup YellowPepper.

The first of its kind for Visa in the region, the strategic $12.5 million Series D investment in the startup will go towards growing opportunities for tokenized payments in the region, as well as increased access to Visa APIs and further the usage of push payments via Visa Direct.

"Through our investment in YellowPepper, we want to bring the best of Visa's technology and capabilities to a broader set of partners and clients across the region," said Eduardo Coello, regional president for Visa Latin America and the Caribbean.

"Visa is always looking for new investments that allow us to accelerate innovation for our clients, finding new ways to support our clients' technology. YellowPepper's extensive experience in the region and the strength of their existing client base makes them an ideal partner to build the future of payments," Coello added.

Visa's investment in YellowPepper is part of a global strategy to open the company's ecosystem and support a variety of new partners that seeks to "redefine and enhance the shopping experience of millions of consumers around the world." The latest capital injection brings the company's funding total to over $50 million.

Prior to YellowPepper, Visa also invested in companies such as solarisBank, Marqeta, Chain, Klarna, Square and Stripe.
