Uprooting evil from Indian economy, one transaction at a time!

Happy Dussehra to all our friends, fans and consumers!

Dussehra marks the end of all negativity, the triumph of good over evil and the festive season brings in new beginnings. When we talk of removing the bad and making way for the good, we must always start with ourselves, and we continue forth in our journey to uproot the evil of corruption from society. We aim for a cash-free nation with our mighty Paytm Wallet.

We are on our way forward to replace paper money with digital money, as we realize it very well that it is one of the most effective ways to bring millions of Indians into mainstream economy. And, the recent recognition given to us by RBI as a payment bank is a testimony to our belief & vision.

As of now, our customers can store digital money in their Paytm Wallets and use it for paying bills & for other services, in near future with Paytm Payment Bank platform we can also offer our consumers services like debit cards/deposits as well.

This is our bet, this is our game for boosting financial inclusion & uprooting corruption from India.

Happy Dussehra!

Another Step Towards Cash-free: The QR Code

Another reason to stop carrying cash. Just carry your smartphone loaded with the Paytm Wallet App and you’re sorted.

It’s a “Eureka” moment for us. With this, our mission of bringing every Indian to the mainstream economy has got a major boost!

This initiative of ours is to rope in small stores and service providers in the country.

How this will work:

In case of pre-printed QR codes, the customer will simply have to scan the QR code, enter the payment amount & approve the payment. Here, the merchant doesn’t need to have a data connection for completing the transaction. He will receive the payment confirmation through an SMS.

Along with this, merchants can also generate their dynamic QR codes which will contain the details of payment.

Cash-free nation, we aren’t far.

The Design Diaries

Akin to the beautifying that most people get done to their homes just in time for Diwali, we did one for our website too!
Our revamped awesomeness boasts of a Marketplace focused design with a more sorted layout.
You’ll love the Shop by Category section with a scroll bar now! We also bring you larger product images that are so easy on the eye.

The changes also reflect in our grid pages, the product detail pages, shopping bag section, landing pages and the login and wallet upgrade screens.
The re-design was a first-of-its-kind experiment in which everyone (well, almost everyone!) sat together, brainstormed and worked hard to achieve this.

Being the design fans that we are, how could we not upgrade the Paytm App for the new iPhone 6S and 6S plus? Our design team has worked beauty into the app by making it awesome to use with the 3D touch feature of the 6S. Incase your 6S is yet to be purchased, here’s the real deal:

Happy exploring and #PaytmKaro!

Stay safe

We cannot stress enough on the importance of secure financial transactions for you.
While we work hard to create loophole free wallet transactions for you, you too can help yourself by strictly observing these rules of financial transactions that are recommended the world over:

  1. Do NOT, under any circumstance, share your debit card or credit card details with ANYONE. Incase someone has called you to ask for them, please sound the alarm bells at the respective bank / financial institution. They should spring into action right away to confirm if the call was fraudulent or not. We can comfortably bet that it would’ve been a fraud call.
  2. Do NOT share your CVV number (3 digit code at the back of your credit / debit card) / internet banking login id and password with ANYONE. Please note, no financial entity will ever ask for these details from you. If you’re being asked for them, you will know instantly that you have been approached by a fraud.
  3. Your OTP is no one’s business. Do NOT share your OTP with anyone, even if they promise the moon to you. We guarantee you, that their offer of the moon will be as fake as the person themselves.

We’re always happy to answer more questions on this. You can reach out to us at https://paytm.com/care at any time, we’re also listening in @Paytm on Twitter and on Facebook too.

Our Facebook Lovestory

We knew we were fast approaching this milestone in leaps and bounds, yet, waking up to it this morning was the best feeling ever: We’ve crossed 1 Million likes on Facebook (and counting!) and we only have our team and our fans and consumers to thank. YOU are the star here, our hero! We feel humbled at the love showered on us.

We commit to continue serving you in the best way possible. We vow to make your life easier every step of the way, whether it is by providing you a secure wallet transaction or by giving you an enjoyable shopping experience.
We will continue to work towards achieving our aim of reducing corruption by creating a cash-free nation, and we look forward to your unwavering support and love.
Thank you all! #StayCharged & #PaytmKaro!
