Paytm had supported PM Modi’s decision to demonetize Rs.500 and Rs.1,000 banknotes as a fight against corruption and now the company is offering and promoting its services to help people facing problems in daily life because of the currency ban.
Most of the people still don’t even know the benefits of the services these Indian giant companies like Paytm, Freecharge, and MobiKwik are providing. These services can really help everyone having shortage of money in hands. Freecharge and Paytm recently introduced a new feature called “Wallet on Delivery” as e-commerce giants like Flipkart, Snapdeal, and Amazon restricted the CoD (Cash on Delivery) service.
Now, Paytm is up with a new in-app feature called “Nearby” to help people discover nearby merchants who accepts payment through Paytm wallet. With Paytm wallet and other wallets, you can make the payment directly without even touching your debit card. For that, you just have to fill your wallet with some money, that’s it, you-re ready to rock. There are over 8 lakh Paytm-ready merchants all over India.
According to the Paytm, the company has recently added over 2 lakh merchants in the first phase. Talking about the new feature, Nearby contains a directory of over 8 lakh merchants. You just have open the app or visit the website to check for any nearby merchant that accepts money via Paytm. It shows a list of shops and locations near you that offer services like accepting payments through Paytm wallet, and adding cash to Paytm wallet.
“At Paytm, our approach has always been to build an ecosystem that benefits both merchants & customers. I am confident that while our customers will appreciate the increased convenience of finding Paytm services near them, our merchants & partners will value the exponential increase in visibility and new business ‘Nearby’ feature will bring. This is a great example of how mobile technology can drive business across the retail industry by redefining the hyperlocal space,” stated Sonia Dhawan (DGM), Paytm.
People, it’s time to get advance to fight such conditions as these online services can really save your time and money.
