Besides, it also helps offline enterprises go online and provides order management services. The startup claims that its services are used by over 7.5 Mn merchants across the world. Barista, Social, Wat-a-Burger, and The Big Chill Cafe are among the brands using its solutions.
Earlier, the startup had raised $27.5 Mn in its Series A round led by Google. The funding round also saw participation from Info Edge Ventures and PayU.
