In what can be termed as a good news for Paytm customers, the e-wallet app has officially launched offline transfer. Now, you do NOT need any internet connection to use the app. Yes, you read it right.
Well, at a time when there is cash crunch in the market due to demonetisation, it indeed sounds like a good news. This feature will enable millions of non-smartphone users to go cashless. Sounds great, doesn’t it?
Here’s how you can use it offline:
Paytm launched a toll free number – 1800 1800 1234 – to enable these offline transactions. For using this service, both merchants and customers need to register with the app with their mobile numbers and set their 4-digit Paytm PIN.
And for transferring, they just have to call on this toll-free number and enter the number of the recipient, the amount, followed the PIN. And the money is easily transferred from one wallet to another.
REMEMBER that the call should be made only by the registered number, only then the process will proceed.
Where can you use the offline service?
You can use it while paying for Taxis, autos, gas stations and grocery stores. You can recharge your pre-paid phones and make bill payments, utility payments and also buy movie tickets.
In short, Paytm will be all the more awesome.
