San Francisco, California-based paytech Finix announced a $30 million investment last week. The funding featured participation from both new and existing investors, and brings the company’s total capital raised to $133 million. Finix reported that it will use the new financing to support the addition of new features to make it easier for software platforms to better manage their payments and merchants.
“The next generation of fintech is all about businesses embedding financial services when and where their customers need them most,” Bain Capital Ventures Managing Director and Finix board member Matt Harris said in a statement. “Finix is a leading example of the type of state-of-the-art payments infrastructure provider that makes this embedded experience possible.”
Calling Q2 2022 its best quarter to date in terms of new deals closed, Finix helps software platforms enable and enhance payment processing. The payment facilitator’s white-label API gives companies the ability to accept payments, manage payouts, and onboard merchants, in order to help produce greater revenues from the payment process. Underwriting, reconciliation, and dispute management are also features of Finix’s platform.
The investment comes as Finix acknowledges a number of significant accomplishments. These include becoming a registered payment facilitator, doubling total annual payments volume from 2020 to 2021, and expanding its suite of in-person payment devices and capabilities. In a blog post at the company website in May, Finix co-founder and CEO Richie Serna highlighted the firm’s recent achievements, concluding “if you compared Finix to Nilson’s 2021 list of top U.S. merchant acquirers, we would rank in the top 50 based on TPV and merchant count.” Serna noted that Finix supports more than 12,000 active small businesses, schools, and places of worship each month.
Participating in Finix’s recent investment were The General Partnership (TheGP), Franklin Templeton, American Express Ventures, Acrew Capital, Bain Capital Ventures, Cap Table Coalition, Homebrew, Insight Partners, Inspired Capital, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Precursor Ventures, PSP Growth, and Vamos Ventures. Founded in 2015, Finix currently includes Kabbage, Passport, and Pay Theory among its customers.
