Moreover, at $32.1 billion, the company clocked more than a 35% year-over-year growth in its gross payment volume.

Looking ahead, for full-year 2023, Toast now expects revenue to hover between $3,810 million to $3,870 million as compared to the prior outlook between $3,710 million and $3,800 million. Adjusted EBITDA is now seen landing between $15 million to $35 million. This is a substantial boost from prior expectations between -$10 million to $10 million.
