Pagos, a Los Angeles, CA-based payment intelligence company that empowers businesses to optimize their digital payment infrastructure, raised $34M in Series A funding.
With Arbor Ventures serving as the round’s lead investor, Point 72 Ventures, Infinity Ventures, and Underscore VC also participated. Infinity Ventures, Point 72 Ventures, and Underscore VC led the business’s $10 million seed round in 2021.
The new funding will expand the Pagos engineering team and enhance the platform’s enterprise product suite of Parrot, Peacock, Canary, Toucan, and Loon. Pagos enables businesses to maximize their income, cut payment expenses, and reduce fraud.
The Pagos platform, which analyses more than 1 billion transactions annually, is trusted by many of the biggest online companies in the world, including Adobe, Eventbrite, GoFundMe, and Warner Bros.
Payment infrastructure has never been more critical, as it is anticipated that by 2027, global digital payments will generate $14.79 trillion in revenue.
However, as payment technology has grown in importance, the costs and complexities that come with it have also increased. As a result, many businesses are missing out on significant revenue opportunities and incurring high payment acceptance costs, which is a worrying reality given the ongoing state of the economy.
