In India, Paytm have more than 270 million users using its app and valued at $7 billion+. Paytm process around 8 million transactions every day ranging from 5 INR to 1 lakh+ and among the top choice for Indian users.
Demonetization played very crucial role in the growth of Paytm. It has seen 4x growth. From 110 million users during the pre-demonetization days, it has seen a phenomenal increase of 270 million plus users. Paytm already have operations in Canada since March 2017 and already established a good user base.
Mr. Vijay Shekhar Sharma Said: ” the company would use its operations in Canada, where the app was launched in March, as a testing ground. Paytm’s customer base there is small.” Paytm also rolled out chat function into its app, called “Inbox .” Paytm Inbox is a full feature messaging platform, to allows chat using messages, photos sharing and videos. You can also send and receive money using the Paytm Wallet.
