CloudWalk, Inc. (“CloudWalk” or the “Company”), a Brazilian fintech pioneer and creator of the InfinitePay brand, today announced that it achieved total revenue of $320.5 million in 2023, a 41% increase year-over-year. Amidst a challenging macro environment for startups, the Brazilian unicorn reported a net income of $22.3 million, with its revenue run rate approaching $400 million.

“The year 2023 was an extraordinary chapter in CloudWalk’s journey, characterized by a unique combination of hyper-growth and profitability, industry-leading innovations, and a steadfast long-term strategic vision,” said Luis Silva, founder and CEO of CloudWalk.

With this strategy, the company witnessed its active merchant base surge to over 1.1 million by year-end, representing a threefold growth compared to 2022.

The highlight of CloudWalk’s 2023 accomplishments was the rapid adoption of “Tap to Pay” technology, allowing merchants to use a smartphone to accept contactless payments, whether with physical cards or digital wallets. “As the first Brazilian company to offer tap-to-pay on both iOS and Android devices, we quickly became the market leader. Our massive increase in InfinitePay customers this year is just the proof of the pudding,” noted Luis. “In 2023, our clients saved over $150 million without needing to purchase a POS machine for card payments.”

CloudWalk also released InfiniteNitro, an instant settlement tool that gives merchants access to their money within seconds after payment, processing over 10 million transactions last year.

“We are delighted to see strong momentum in improving the overall value proposition of the InfinitePay brand, as we drive the adoption of new products to establish ourselves as a one-stop shop financial platform for small and medium-sized entrepreneurs,” said Luis. Last December, the company marked a significant achievement by establishing a presence in every one of Brazil’s 5,568 cities. “This is a great example of our unwavering commitment to democratizing digital payments.”
