“Flexmoney’s digital credit platform provides a seamless and secure ‘plug and play’ proposition for trusted lenders and merchants to offer the widest set of options for frictionless, secure, instant checkout finance to their customers and is transforming their purchase experience. With this funding, we are one step closer to achieving our vision of Simplifying and Democratising Consumer Credit in India,” Yezdi said.

“Flexmoney plans to use the funds to scale its credit network footprint to many more lenders and merchants, as well as launch multiple additional products and consolidate its position as the leading digital credit and BNPL infrastructure in India,” the statement said.

Commenting on the investment, the Spokesperson of Pravega Ventures, said,  “Traditional credit instruments have failed to create a significant impression in the Indian market with credit card penetration standing only at 3% v/s 42% in China. Flexmoney’s InstaCred BNPL credit platform is leveraging technology to democratize credit access by enabling consumers and small businesses to instantly avail short-term digital credit at the point of purchase, without the need for credit cards or robust credit history. We are extremely impressed with the network that Flexmoney has built in a short span and are excited to participate in their mission to revolutionize the Indian credit landscape.”

Talking about the funding in Flexmoney, Nanda Krish, General Partner at Z5 Capital, said “Z5 Capital is thrilled to invest in Flexmoney and fuel its mission to simplify and democratize Purchase Financing in India. InstaCred by Flexmoney is already the largest “Buy Now, Pay Later” platform in India, and the need and potential for this internet credit infrastructure spans even more global markets. We’re proud and excited to partner with Flexmoney to scale up and revolutionize the credit ecosystem in India and across the globe.”

“Flexmoney is positioning itself at the forefront of the digital credit ecosystem in India. Flexmoney’s experienced leadership team has built a strong network of trusted Banks and NBFCs to offer branded, instant, ‘cardless’ point-of-sale credit across its growing partner network of merchants. As a former banker and active fintech investor, I am excited by the growth potential of Flexmoney’s digital credit platform both in India and internationally, and extremely proud to be part of their journey as they disrupt the credit ecosystem on a mission to become the preferred choice for the digital consumer generation,” Ben Davey, former Group Head of Strategy, Barclays Bank & CEO Barclays Ventures further added.
