Anybody prepared for modern life needs to carry around in their pocket pen and paper, a photo camera, a calculator, a dictionary, an MP3 player, plasters, keys, tissues, and a wallet. And people getting on in age wouldn't believe that we can carry all those things with us on our smartphone. OK, not the tissues but we definitely can put our wallet on our phone. Mobile payments are a reality and Paytm - Payments, Wallet & Recharge is here to prove it.
Faster online payments, recharge your phone, pay bills or purchase tickets or movies.
Although some years ago we were all a bit afraid of paying with our phone, nowadays, only a few people don't trust this kind of transaction. PayPal was a ground-breaker in this sense, winning over people's confidence and making them feel secure, and helping the market to explore loads of different options. One of the latter is Paytm, released back in August of 2010.
Accept a payment from customers or friends, or send money.
What can I use Paytm for?
Paytm behaves as a wallet so you can basically make and receive payments. For instance, recharging online the credit of your prepaid phone couldn't be any easier... although it's aimed at Indian users that own bank cards from their country. With its wallet function you carry out all the following actions from your device:
- Add money.
- Check your account and movements.
- Accept a payment (from a customer or a friend...).
- Check for nearby places that accept Paytm payments.
But from this app you can also recharge or pay for different services and amenities without any effort:
- Your phone's credit.
- Satellite TV.
- Public transport.
- Daily consumables.
- Google Play.
- Local taxes.
But that's not all, as it also offers you the chance to book tickets for:
- Theme parks.
- Gift cards.
- Rental cars or bikes.
And you'll also be able to pay for your online shopping. It even works with QR codes or OTP passwords. You can install the APK file from the Play Store but if you haven't got an Indian card or bank account, it's going to be hard for you to make the most of all its potential.
