Also, the e-transaction major attained close to 335 million transactions in the month of July 2019.

PhonePe which was acquired by Flipkart in 2016, was founded by ex-Flipkart executives Sameer Nigam, Rahul Chari and Burzin Engineer. Since then Flipkart has invested about $500 million in PhonePe.

While, at present, PhonePe claims to have over 150 million users and is accepted across 50 lakh merchant outlets nationally.
