More companies received payment aggregator licenses

EnKash along with other fintech startups such as Cashfree Payments, OPEN, Razorpay, and more were granted payment aggregator licences in December 2023.

OPEN’s founders stated that this approval not only acknowledges their dedication to regulatory standards but also signifies a significant leap in fortifying their commitment to SMEs. The enhanced capabilities will bolster their financial automation platforms, providing SMEs with advanced tools to streamline their financial operations and thrive in the digital era.

A Cashfree Payments’ spokesperson also said the company is now onboarding new merchants on its payment gateway with the license from the RBI. They are happy about this new phase of their journey, where they continue to drive exponential growth and retain their market leadership as the preferred aggregator in the payments space.
