Xendit, Indonesia, funding, capital, API, start-up, Accel, digital paymentsXendit, one of the fastest-growing payments infrastructure platforms for Southeast Asia, announced it closed $300 million in Series D funding, taking the total amount raised to $538 million to power the world’s fastest-growing digital economy. Coatue and Insight Partners co-led the round with additional investment from Accel, Tiger Global, Kleiner Perkins, EV Growth, Amasia, Intudo, and Justin Kan’s Goat Capital.

“We intend to keep reinvesting in new markets, enhancing our Xendit platform, and expanding our business lines so we can seize the biggest and best opportunities,” Moses Lo, Founder and CEO of Xendit, explained. “Southeast Asia’s digital economy will be worth more than US$360 billion by 2025 and we think we’ve positioned ourselves well to both drive and benefit from that growth.”

Xendit is making strategic investments that serve start-ups and SMEs in Southeast Asian countries. The company recently invested in Bank Sahabat Sampoerna, a private bank in Indonesia that focuses on micro and SME businesses, as well as banking-as-a-service for technology-enabled businesses.

To complement its expansion into the Philippines, Xendit made a strategic investment into the leading local payment gateway, Dragonpay, doubling down on its commitment to modernising hyperlocalized payments infrastructure in each market it enters. The company is now one of the largest payments players in the Philippines, overcoming the region’s challenging and long-standing reliability and infrastructure hurdles.

“We will continue to deliver access to Xendit’s payments products and services to enable more businesses and people in the region to participate in the digital economy,” said Tessa Wijaya Co-founder and COO of Xendit. “Xendit will continue to expand into new markets – like Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam – where we can identify a need that doesn’t exist, similar to what we did in the Philippines. We plan to diversify our products with value-added services, like lending programs we’ve already started in Indonesia.”

“Payments are a crucial component for online businesses and we believe Xendit is capturing a formative opportunity in Southeast Asia,” said Luca Schmid, General Partner at Coatue. “Xendit’s deep local expertise, modern tech stack and customer-centric approach has created a digital payments platform that is helping transform how Southeast Asian businesses transact. Coatue is delighted to partner with the Xendit team for the next phase of their journey.”

“The payments infrastructure market opportunity in Southeast Asia is massive, and Xendit is capturing it with its world-class payments technology,” said Nikhil Sachdev, Managing Director at Insight Partners. “The company’s strong leadership team and excellent customer reviews, coupled with its incredible traction across Southeast Asia, have made Xendit the dominant player in the region. Insight is thrilled to partner with Moses and the team as they scale their operations.”

With more than 3,000 customers, Xendit’s competitive differentiator is its deep understanding of local customer needs combined with global technology. This allows Xendit to deliver hyper-localized products to help startups scale while also serving some of Southeast Asia’s largest merchants, including Samsung Indonesia, GrabPay, Ninja Van Philippines, Qoala, Unicef Indonesia, Cashalo and Shopback.
