GoCardless, the payment gateway company announced a fresh injection of $75 million in Series E funding, which was co-led by Alphabet's venture arm GV and private equity firm Adams Street Partners. Existing investors Accel, Balderton Capital, Notion Capital, and Passion Capital also contributed.

The new funding will be infused by the direct debit UK-based payment gateway company to fund offices across EMEA, APAC, and North America, as the company already processes transactions for 40,000 business houses worldwide.

Hiroki Takeuchi, CEO of GoCardless, told CNBC in an interview,

In just a couple of years, CEO Hiroki Takeuchi has motivated the company to become the one-stop shop globally for businesses that want to let customers pay via recurring bank payments networks.

Tom Hulme, the general partner at GV, told CNBC,

Over a year ago, GoCardless announced that it had raised $22.5 million in further funding, off the back of record annual growth in the U.K. The company has its offices in Germany, France, and Australia with headquarter in London.

GoCardless plans to open up offices in Spain and the U.S. this year and will increasingly focus on the companies with more of a global footprint. Recurring payments network firms Stripe, Adyen and Square which have a strong presence in the U.S. are counted as their rivals. Although Takeuchi noted, they differ from rival companies by focusing more on taking card payments instead of bank-to-bank transactions.
