Paytm is an Indian digital payments and financial services company. The company offers mobile payment services to consumers and enables merchants to receive payments through its QR code, point of sale, and online payment gateway offerings. Since the cashless India movement was initiated by the government of India, consumers as well as merchants have shifted more and more towards cashless means of transactions. Paytm is one such popular medium of cashless transactions. For Paytm transactions in a store, the most popular and easy way is using QR codes. The vendor’s or merchant’s bank account is connected to the QR code. When a user scans a QR code to make a purchase, money is promptly withdrawn from his or her account or wallet and sent to the retailer’s or vendor’s bank account.
