Merge Closes $55 Million in Series B   

by Kay Aloha Villamor in December 5th, 2022

Merge, a San Francisco, CA-based Unified API for B2B integrations, closed $55 million in Series B funding round led by Accel, with participation from existing investors NEA and Addition. This brings the company's total funding to $75 million. 

The funds will be used to expand its team from 60 to over 100 people next year, investing in both R&D and GTM teams.

Merge's annual recurring revenue has increased by a factor of twenty-six in the year since the Series A fundraise, as SaaS companies expand their use of Merge's Unified API.

"Our growth over the past year shows how much of a need there is in the market for Unified APIs that make building product integrations easier," said Merge co-founder Shensi Ding. "We're really excited that now, with our Free plan, startups can offer their first integrations no matter what size or scale they are."

The expanded Free plan allows companies to offer integrations to their first five customers and then transitions to a flat monthly cost for the next fifteen. This plan will create new opportunities for startups to more quickly achieve product-market fit and to rapidly expand their addressable market.

Over 3,000 companies use Merge to add integrations to their SaaS apps. Merge powers integrations for customers such as TripActions, Ramp, Drata, AngelList, Ripplematch, and Apollo.
