According to the firm, the income was driven by a rise in merchant subscription revenues, an increase in bill payments as a result of an increase in MTU, and an increase in loan disbursements made through our platform.

Financial services and other business revenue was $349 crore, up 293% YoY, and now represents 18% of total revenue (up from 8% in Q2FY22), according to the company. This growth was primarily attributable to sourcing and collecting fees in the loan distribution business.
The platform's ongoing platform expansion across MTU (monthly transaction users), merchant base, subscription merchants, and GMV drove the company's payments services revenue growth of 56% YoY. (gross merchandise value).
The GMV was 3.2 lakh crore in Q2 FY23, up 63% YoY. GMV increased by 8% on a quarter-over-quarter basis, driven by an expansion of the offline merchant base and a rise in GMV from online merchants, particularly e-commerce because of holiday sales.
According to the firm, total loans given in collaboration with lending partners during the quarter were 9.2 million (increased 224% YoY and 8% QoQ) and $7,313 crore (up 482% YoY and 32% QoQ).
