Sameer Nigam, CEO and founder of PhonePe, said the company has set a target of crossing 500 million registered users by December 2022.
“In line with our brand ethos of ‘Karte Ja. Badhte Ja’, we continue to launch new and innovative products for every strata of Indian society, as well as enable digital payment acceptance across every merchant in every village and town in India,” he added.
PhonePe – which competes with the likes of Paytm, MobiKwik and Google Pay – allows users to send and receive money, recharge mobile and make utility payments as well as buy gold and make investments.
It had also launched its ‘Switch’ platform that allows customers can place orders on over 220 apps including Ola, Myntra, IRCTC, Goibibo, RedBus and Oyo.
