Tapzo raised about Rs 25 crore across two internal rounds of funding in January and June this year from Singapore-based RB Investments and Ru-Net, according to ET. The firm was valued at Rs 600 crore in 2016 when it raised about $5 million from Sequoia Capital.

The company has also been backed by American Express Ventures apart from Sequoia Capital, RB Investments and Ru-Net, among others. It’s been reported that Tapzo was struggling to expand its transaction volumes. Recently, the company’s valuation had dropped by almost 45 percent after the funding earlier this year. After the Amazon Pay acquisition, Tapzo s investors will reportedly exit with a cash payout.
