The company builds new-age technology solutions on top of existing payment infrastructure to make it easier for companies of all sizes to collect recurring payments and take control of their cash flows.

Initially backed by 500 global and other investors, the company’s annual revenue has been growing at nearly 5X since 2018.

“We look forward to the next phase of our journey and scaling together across Malaysia and Southeast Asia,” said Liew.

This marks Razorpay’s fourth acquisition overall and its first in the international market.

Prior to this, the company acquired TERA Finlabs, (AI-based risk tech SaaS Platform) in 2021, Opfin (Payroll & HR management solution) in 2019, and Thirdwatch (Fraud Analytics AI-platform) in 2018.

Razorpay serves over eight million businesses including Facebook, Ola, Zomato, Swiggy, Cred, and achieved $60 billion total payment volume (TPV) as of December 2021.
