The company has also recently received a payment aggregator licence from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). With this, the company is looking to provide comprehensive payment solutions across both the digital offline and the online channels.

It claims to have a merchant network exceeding half a million. It also claimed that the company has been profitable at an EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation) level for the last five quarters.
