Judo Payments Funding

Judo Payments mobile-first payments platform has successfully closed an additional £6M in funding for expanding its mobile commerce, led by Route 66 Ventures. They also announced partnerships with KFC for online payments. Last year Judo partnered with coffee chain Harris + Hoole to produce an award-winning app, “Retailer of the Year” at Payments Awards 2014, that allows customers to pay without having to touch, tap or scan at the counter. The £6M extra investment will be used primarily to increase the resources of the team as Judo looks to expand its existing business and products in Europe and enter into new geographic territories later this year. The Judo platform offers mobile-specific fraud prevention and API level transaction routing.
