DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–TransferMate, the world’s leading provider of B2B payments infrastructure as a service, today announced a $70 million funding round taking the company to a $1 billion valuation and $130 million total funding dollars.

TransferMate has grown its global licensing infrastructure and banking network to be one of the broadest in the industry and has been chosen as the partner of choice to power B2B payment products for some of the largest software platforms, innovative banks and Fintechs in the world. This funding round, which consists entirely of primary capital, will be used to expand its teams globally and further invest in its technology innovation and product suite.
“We are delighted to welcome Railpen as a shareholder at this exciting time,” said Terry Clune, founder of TransferMate. “By combining our technology and our global licensing network, we are enabling software providers, banks and fintechs to deliver much faster and cheaper payments than the traditional SWIFT system. We will use this investment to continue to recruit talent experienced financiers who can help us expand our customer base.”

Our commitment to delivering real-time transparency and speed when businesses make cross-border payments has made TransferMate’s global B2B payment infrastructure of choice for leading procure-to-pay and spend management platforms,” said Sinead Fitzmaurice, CEO of TransferMate. “This investment will allow us to accelerate our mission to drive innovation as companies look to digitize their B2B payments within the software core they use to run their daily business.
This new round of investment, coupled with the $1 billion valuation, further distinguishes TransferMate as the world’s most comprehensive independent B2B payment network. It allows businesses and individuals to make cross-border payments in more than 201 countries and 141 currencies, as easily and cost-effectively as making a domestic funds transfer, and with full transparency from the transaction to the final approximation point.
