The head of WhatsApp's India payment business, Manesh Mahatme, has quit after 18 months and is reportedly joining Amazon India where he worked for nearly 7 years.

Mahatme has played an important role in expanding the access to 'payments on WhatsApp' in India, said Meta in a statement. 

"We wish him every success for his future endeavours. Payments on WhatsApp is a priority for Meta and we will continue to innovate and drive momentum as part of our broader efforts to bring the 'next 500 million Indians' onto the digital payments' ecosystem," a Meta spokesperson was quoted by Economic Times as saying.

Mahatme has joined as director of product in the e-commerce division of Amazon in India, as per reports.

Mahatme was also on the board of Amazon Pay India between 2014 and 2021.

Mahatme was earlier director and board member of Amazon Pay India when he was hired by WhatsApp Pay as Director and Head in April last year.
