Existing investors Bessemer, Blume Ventures and Olympus Capital invested in the round, with participation from Paramark Ventures. Cashify did not disclose the valuation at which the funding round happened. According to a report by Entrackr, the company was valued at over $250 million in the round.

The company said that the capital raised will be deployed for hiring, building technology infrastructure, marketing and expanding into new markets.
