How can you contribute?

Help the underprivileged Indian youth by giving them a gentle nudge and give the Freedom from Poverty!

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!
