YapStone offers flexible payment solutions for marketplace-style businesses. In the increasingly crowded world of payment services, YapStone has sought to differentiate itself by allowing businesses to customize their system to a greater extent than is possible with other platforms. The company works with partners such as Kigo, Choice Hotels, Wyndham Vacation Rentals, RentPath, and BookingPal. As of 2018, the company processes $18 billion in payments annually. Yapstone has raised over $183 million in venture capital funding from investors including Premji Invest, MeriTech Capital Partners, Accel Partners, and Mastercard Incorporated. The company's most recent round of funding brought in $71 million. CEO Tom Villante says "YapStone will use the funding to expand geographically and to work on new technologies." The recent funding round brought Yapstone's post-money valuation to $471 million.
