Tipalti Customer Base Surges to More Than 3,000 as It Boosts Transactions 50%
B2B fintech unicorn expands global footprint and customer base; achieves 98% customer retention rate for fifth year in a row
Foster City, CA – March 1, 2023 – Tipalti, the leading global payables solution, today announced its 2022 results, highlighting significant growth in customer transactions, expanded office space and locations and innovative new products. Tipalti grew its overall customer base to more than 3,000, helping total transactions to soar by 50% for a total payments volume of $43 billion. Its UK solution, launched in 2021, contributed to this growth with more than 100 new customers signed since inception. New global customers such as GoodRx, e.l.f. Cosmetics and Cloudinary joined a portfolio of clients with a 98% retention rate.
2022 was also a momentous year of product innovation and recognition for Tipalti. At its second annual Illuminate user conference, Tipalti unveiled the Tipalti Card, which combines quick virtual card issuance with end-to-end supplier payments, allowing users to manage and control business spend across all payment methods while achieving instant credit card reconciliation. The simplicity and convenience of the Tipalti Card further show the company’s ability to address the pain points and complexities of the finance operation.
The company continued to rake in awards for solutions that are changing how companies around the world manage everything from AP to global payouts. In fact, Tipalti was named to the Inc. 5000 list and Deloitte Fast 500 list for the fifth consecutive year and was one of only 15 companies to be named to Deloitte’s Fast 500 five years in a row. Alongside Salesloft and Onit, Tipalti was also one of only three companies to appear on both lists for the past five consecutive years.
Tipalti’s customers are proof of why these awards are deserved:
“At Create Music Group, our goal is to give artists more money, more often and with complete transparency, and we needed a partner who was able to deliver payments quickly and accurately to a global client base,” said Zach Victor, VP of Finance at Create Music Group. “With Tipalti’s finance automation, we’ve been able to modernize and consolidate our payments process, streamline our workflow and be better partners to our clients.”
Additional major milestones for Tipalti include:
Product Enhancements and Integrations:

Now, buyers, AP staff and business approvers can work with each other directly on the bill by exchanging questions and comments and attaching documents within Tipalti, all without needing to log in.
- Xero API Integration: Tipalti introduced an API-based integration with Xero for near real-time, automated data updates and two-way syncing between Tipalti and Xero accounting, allowing companies to maximize efficiency and accelerate their financial close.
