Post demonetization, people are switching to Paytm, so as to avoid cash transactions. This e-wallet has indeed proven to be a blessing in such a situation, where there is severe cash crunch. After assisting us with all our day to day transactions, Paytm has one more good news for you.
Now, you don’t need internet data or smartphone for using this e-wallet app. The company has relieved everyone by announcing that it has expanded its reach even to users of feature phone i.e. phones with no internet facility.
A toll free number has been launched by Paytm i.e. 1800 1800 1234 so that merchants and customers can receive or pay money immediately and also do mobile recharges, without internet connection
How to use this service?
For using this service, both merchants as well as customers should use their mobile number for registering with Paytm. A 4-digit Paytm PIN should be set.
Then, while transferring from one wallet to another, one just needs to call up this toll free number and enter the number of the recipient followed by the Paytm PIN.
Initially, you need a smartphone for setting up your account with Paytm to use this. Keep in mind that call should be made only with that number which has been registered with Paytm.
As of now, it is not at all possible to create an account on a feature phone having no internet. For adding money to the wallet, a user has to login to through the website or through the app.
Nearby cash-in-points can also be used to top up the account!
