WhatsApp Pay India head Manesh Mahatme quits to join Amazon

The head of WhatsApp‘s India payment business, Manesh Mahatme, has quit after more than a year with the Meta Platforms-owned company to join Amazon India, a source told Reuters on Thursday.

Mahatme’s exit comes at a critical time for Whatsapp, which is seeking to ramp up its payments service in a highly competitive market and lock horns with more established payers such as Alphabet Inc’s Google Pay, Ant Group-backed Paytm and Walmart’s PhonePe.
