Commenting on the successful closing of its Series A fundraising, Louis Liu, Founder and CEO of FOMO Pay said, “2022 has so far been a breakout year for FOMO Pay – we are seeing significant growth across all business lines. Our volumes for the first half of 2022 have already surpassed the full year 2021 levels and our client pipeline is extremely strong. We attribute this success to the hard work of our team and their effort to always put customers first.”
