In a blog post, Square Peg said: “While payments within India are supported through the UPI infrastructure built by the government, sending money to, and receiving money from, countries outside India, is currently an unsolved and acute problem for local merchants and freelancers. 

“XFlow has established a strong network of customers already using their full-stack payments platform to accept payments simply and effortlessly.” 

Besides, XFlow is planning to enable other fintech platforms use its payment capabilities.

Inc 42 quoted Lightspeed partner Bejul Somaia as saying: “We believe the founding team’s prior experience and focus on compliance, risk, product, and engineering, positions them strongly, and we are excited to continue supporting the company.”

Proceeds from the latest funding round will be used for expanding product capabilities to support more currencies and local payment methods along with growing their business in India.

Previously, the company raised $6m in a seed investment round led by Lightspeed, Stripe and General Catalyst.
