Clear, the Indian startup, has raised $ 75 million from investors, including Stripe and others, as it tries to make more payments online, according to a Bloomberg report.
Clear’s Services offers cloud-based tax filing software subscription services.
In addition, it also works with wealth management services, tax reporting services and electronic invoicing.
Investors fund more and more as the industry experiences greater growth.
Clear’s platform has grown five times in the past year and a half, adding 3,000 large companies as well as over a million small businesses.
The new round was led by Kora Capital, which Alua Capital joined, alongside Think Investments and others who have traditionally backed Clear.
According to Bloomberg, Clear says he now has more than a tenth of India’s trade bill to process.
He recently bought yBANQ as a way to get more payments, according to the report.
The acquisition of yBANQ was reported by PYMNTS as “a logical next step for us to provide an enterprise payment collection infrastructure to our customers and also to offer payment facilities”, according to Archit Gupta, Founder and CEO by Clear.
Gupta, speaking to The Economic Times, said the acquisition was made for the company’s team.
