The company has registered that Restaurants, Food outlets & Quick Service Restaurants in Tamil Nadu transact the most using Paytm. They can now service their desired client walk-ins who prefer digital payments to cash. Tea stalls near offices and IT hubs have also contributed massively, while grocery & kirana shops in residential areas have also contributed to the overall volume.
Tom Puthenpurackal Jacob, Regional Head – Paytm said, “Our QR based payments have become top of mind for users and merchants across Tamil Nadu. It is exciting to see that once our merchants and consumers experience the power of convenient mobile payments, it causes a rapid and permanent shift in their behavior. We are confident this rate of adoption will increase further as our merchants can now accept payments from Paytm, UPI or Cards at zero cost round the clock, throughout the year at no charges. We are confident the convenience associated with this process will trigger a larger number of merchants in Tamil Nadu towards going cashless.”
