For those who break our trust

Paytm owes its existence to you – those of you who support us and believe in us. We work hard to build a trusted and secure platform for our customers and merchants to interact with each other with complete peace of mind. Some elements however, try to exploit this trust by indulging in unfair practices.

Who are these people? They usually pose as regular consumers but misuse the Paytm platform for greedy, unethical and often illegal activities. Their malpractices create a burden for innocent consumers and cause roadblocks for us to serve our genuine customers & merchants.  (Read more stories about such customers)

What do these people do? In a nutshell, they abuse their privileges as Paytm’s customers & merchants. Some examples are listed below.

  • Unauthorised use of financial credentials: Getting access to someone else’s debit card/credit card/net banking information is a criminal activity punishable under law. These cases almost always get reported to the Police. 
  • Financial crimes: Using our platform for transfers that may be construed to be linked to money laundering or criminal activities. These cases attract severe legal action.
  • Stealing account credentials (Phishing): Hacking the accounts of other users as a prank or as a criminal is a fraudulent activity punishable under law so is unauthorised use of Paytm logo and / or impersonating a Paytm employee to gather user credentials.
  • Providing Wrong Details: We trust our users to provide authentic information while interacting with us – while creating Paytm account, KYC process or while placing orders. Doing so helps us to serve you better.
  • Bulk Purchases: Paytm marketplace is a platform for merchants to sell their products to individuals for their personal use. Bulk purchases are not promoted unless explicitly mentioned. People involved in bulk ordering, might find their access to Paytm platform revoked.
  • Also, individuals are expected to create a single account to avail Paytm services. Creating multiple accounts to avail numerous cash-backs is considered a system abuse and results in appropriate action.
  • Bogus Claims: Abusing our customer friendly principles & processes results in inconvenience for our genuine customers. People with history of fraudulent claims of having received sub-standard products or empty boxes will be pursued through all available remedies as per the law.

Get all the details from an interview with our CEO Vijay Shekhar Sharma below on Bloomberg India, TechCrunch, Reuters, Wall Street Journal, Economic Times and ET Now.

Paytm & InMobi partner to create the largest discovery & mobile shopping platform in India

We’re excited to tie up with InMobi, the world’s most powerful mobile advertising platform, in a multi level partnership with an aspiration to turbo charge the mobile commerce ecosystem. 

Seeing Paytm grow to 100 million users blows our mind and yet, it’s only the beginning. Our aspirations are much bigger. Joining hands with InMobi combines the power of m-commerce with d-commerce (discovery commerce) in a big way.

So what’s (in it) new for you, you ask?

Unmatched user reach for Paytm sellers

As sellers on our Paytm marketplace you will now have reach to an extended universe of 120 million mobile internet users on InMobi’s Miip d-commerce platform. While earlier you were able to sell only to our Paytm universe, you can now increase your business manifold by reaching out to the entire mobile internet community in India. Our partnership will power billions of d-commerce sessions, thus exponentially increasing the reach of the combined platform. We know that access to a wide market and a user-friendly payment solution are the two most critical elements for you to increase your business. Our association with InMobi will provide exactly this solution to you.

Buy buttons powered by Paytm Wallet on Miip platform 

Our Paytm Wallet will enable seamless checkouts on the Miip zone in more than thousands of apps. It ensures that sellers have higher sales conversions as the Paytm Wallet (with over 100 million users) is optimized to ensure minimum payment failures and provide higher convenience for mobile payments.

Digital store powered on Paym App

Our app users get access to latest apps & games on their smartphones through the Paytm App powered by InMobi’s Miip platform. All the apps and games you’ll see on the store are free to install and can be easily downloaded from Google Play or the Apple App Store. This digital store will also offer you in the future music and video content directly from the Paytm App.

Cashfree Nation. Our commitment. Our vow.

At the stroke of midnight, 100 million Paytm users will commit to a cash-free nation.

Paytm’s mission is to help India become the most cashless society on the planet! Making the change to a completely cashless society will mean overturning tradition, which may be a bigger hurdle than technology as cash in India is still king. Cash is fundamentally unsafe, it doesn’t leave a trail for tax compliance. Plus it makes economic sense, and it’s cheaper for everyone to move to an all electronic model. Pushing coins and paper through the system is very expensive. Money wears out, you carry it back and forth, redistribute it, count it. It’s a big cost on the system and it fuels corruption.

Our aim at Paytm is to build a cash-free nation. We want to make digital payments accessible for everyone in this country. Where digital payments are accepted, Paytm offers a faster & more convenient alternative & where digital payments are not accepted, Paytm is a much safer choice.

Wherever there are payments to be made, Paytm will be there for its users!

Paytm Wallet crosses 100 million users

Cashfree Nation. Our commitment. Our vow.

Making payments in the offline world has its challenges. We’re excluding credit or debit card transactions as they are minuscule, cash in India is king in the offline world. Not only is cash fundamentally unsafe, it doesn’t leave a trail for tax compliance. Now imagine sitting in an auto & paying for your ride through your Paytm’s Mobile Wallet as fast as you click a selfie & the auto driver gets an instant notification of the money credited in his wallet, this applies to the Kirana shop or your local chaiwala. 

It’s faster, safer & cleaner for both customers & sellers. Our goal is to ensure that all buyers and sellers, online & offline, big or small are able to make and accept digital payments. 

Our Paytm Wallet has crossed 100 million digital wallet users in India. That’s a key milestone in our mission! We’re India’s most trusted wallet and proud of it. 

Paytm’s Wallet today is accepted by over 80,000 sellers. This number continuously grows and gives users immense possibilities to shop, discover sellers and pay online. Users can load money to their Paytm Wallet using debit card, credit card, net banking and over 20,000 cash deposit points. We’re partnering with various banks to enable users to add money through bank branches and ATM machines.

P2P is another feature that we added to our Paytm Wallet, enabling users to transfer funds to other users rather than using the platform to pay bills and recharge subscriptions.

Where digital payments are accepted, Paytm offers a faster & more convenient alternative & where digital payments are not accepted, Paytm is a much safer choice. We are actively exploring partnerships with all the major brands in the online & offline world so that our customers can enjoy the speed, security & convenience of paying through Paytm Wallet everywhere. Wherever there are payments to be made, Paytm will be there!

Join the cashfree revolution! Try Paytm now.
