Mumbai, 24th August, 2017: PhonePe, India’s fastest growing digital payments company, today announced that it achieved a phenomenal $2.5 Billion total payment volume (TPV) annual runrate. This is the fastest ramp up seen in India’s digital payments market to date. PhonePe’s monthly transactions have grown 800% since December last year, fueled largely by exponential growth in online merchant, mobile recharge and bill payment transactions.
