In such situations, online payments through QR code scanners come as a great relief. All you need to do is scan the vendor’s QR code from the Paytm app and make direct bank-to-bank payments. You can scan the QR codes at shops, restaurants, pharmacies, petrol pumps, groceries, malls, supermarkets and even street vendors and make easy, hassle-free payments of any amount that you want.

The major advantage that Paytm offers is that you can scan the UPI QR codes of not only the other Paytm users but of any UPI payment app.


Is it safe to share the UPI QR code with others?

Yes, sharing the UPI QR code with others is safe because it only facilitates direct payment to the bank account without compromising security. UPI QR codes are linked with bank accounts in order to share payment information with the sender. However, you must ensure that the sender does not have access to your UPI PIN, password, or any other personal information.

How does Paytm allow users to scan a UPI QR code of all apps?

Paytm users can scan a UPI QR code from any app, as these codes are linked to bank accounts for UPI payments. The money sent is deducted from the sender's account and deposited directly into the linked bank account of the receiver. As a result, Paytm can be considered an interoperable payment app.
