It currently processes transactions worth more than $5 billion annually on its platform and plans to hit $8 billion to $10 billion by the end of India’s financial year in March.


For its operation in the Gulf, PayMate is relying on its partnership with global payments technology company Visa and tie-ups with several local banks including Emirates NBD, Dubai’s largest lender by assets.
