Our Super App continues to see growing consumer engagement with the average MTU for the quarter to date (for January & February) at 89 million, registering a growth of 28% y-o-y.

We continue to strengthen our leadership in offline payments, with 6.4 million merchants now paying subscriptions for payment devices, an increase of 0.3 million in the month of February 2023. With our subscription-as-a-service model, the strong adoption of devices drives subscription revenues and higher payment volumes, while increasing the funnel for our merchant loan distribution.

The total merchant GMV processed through our platform for the quarter to date (for Jan & Feb) was Rs 2.34 Lakh Cr ($28.3 billion), marking a y-o-y growth of 41%. Our focus over the past few quarters continues to be on payment volumes that generate profitability for us, either through net payments margin or from direct upsell potential.

Our loan distribution business (in partnership with top lenders) continues to witness accelerated growth with total disbursements through our platform for the quarter to date (for Jan & Feb) growing 286% y-o-y to Rs 8,086 Cr ($979 million). Our payments consumer and merchant base offers a large addressable market, thereby providing a long runway for growth. We continue to work with our partners to remain focused on the quality of the book.
