Square

Mobile payments startup Square has raised more than $200 million in its fourth round of funding from investors such as Citi Ventures, Rizvi Traverse Management, and Starbucks, the company announced Monday morning.

The round was worth more than $200 million, a spokesperson told AllThingsD. The publication also pegs Square’s valuation at $3.25 billion.

We knew a new round of funding was coming soon because of Square’s recent partnership with Starbucks. The coffee giant invested $25 million into Square at the time.
