The organization has successfully digitized over 35 million offline retailers spanning Tiers 2, 3, 4, and beyond, representing 99% of the country’s pin codes. PhonePe is also investing heavily in new businesses such as insurance and wealth management, as well as allowing the next wave of development for UPI payments in India.

Our focus on simplifying customer experience while ensuring fast, secure and reliable transactions, has helped us win the trust of millions of Indian users.
