Paytm is an Indian digital payments and financial services company headquartered in Noida, Uttar Pradesh, India. It was founded in 2010 by Vijay Shekhar Sharma and initially started as a mobile recharge and bill payment platform.
Mobile Recharge and Bill Payments
Paytm allows users to recharge their mobile phones, pay utility bills, and recharge DTH (Direct-to-Home) services online.
Paytm offers an online marketplace where users can shop for a wide variety of products, including electronics, fashion, home appliances, and more.
Paytm’s digital wallet enables users to store money and make digital payments for various goods and services. It can be used to pay for online and offline transactions, including mobile recharges, bill payments, and purchases on the Paytm marketplace.
UPI (Unified Payments Interface)
Paytm provides UPI-based payment services, allowing users to send and receive money directly from their bank accounts using the Paytm app.
Paytm has also ventured into banking services by launching Paytm Payments Bank, which offers savings accounts, fixed deposits, and digital debit cards to its customers.
Paytm offers investment options such as mutual funds, gold, and stocks through its platform, allowing users to invest their money.
Users can purchase various insurance products, including health insurance and vehicle insurance, through the Paytm app.
Paytm allows users to book flights, trains, buses, and hotels through its platform.
Paytm offers ticket booking services for movies, events, and amusement parks. Paytm became particularly popular in India due to the government’s push for digital payments and the demonetization move in 2016.
It has since grown into one of the leading digital payment providers in the country and expanded its services to include a wide range of financial and non-financial offerings.
