The B2B payments FinTech startup Kriya has obtained a fresh €58 million fundraising round from Viola Group, a longstanding loan and equity partner. The fresh funding will enable the fintech to power more than £1 billion in B2B payments, over the next 24 months.

B2B Payments: Kriya’s Growth Strategy

Since its founding in 2011, Kriya has assisted companies with collecting over £27 billion in B2B payments and extending over £3.5 billion in credit to suppliers and buyers. It is currently active in the UK, Ireland, Spain, the Netherlands, Poland, and Belgium.

Kriya plans to expand its embedded credit and payments service for B2B shops and marketplaces with PayNow and PayLater with the addition of this facility. With the additional capital, Kriya will be able to support both offline and online checkouts and provide services like Pay in 30 or 60 days or split payments over several months. Kriya can assist major retailers in drawing in and keeping business clients by streamlining the checkout procedure. This will support larger sales baskets and ease the cash flow of end users, including sole proprietors.
