Paytm Now Works Without Internet
Paytm has announced a toll-free number 1800-1800-1234 to enable consumers and merchants without an internet connection to pay and receive money instantly and also recharge their mobile phones. This will empower millions of non-smartphone users to go cashless even without a smartphone.
To use this service, as a first step, Paytm customers and merchants must set their 4 Digit Paytm PIN on call.
They can then enter the recipient’s mobile number, amount and their Paytm PIN to successfully transfer the money from their Paytm wallet to another Paytm wallet.
Paytm is already offering its Digital cash services for users to pay in Taxis, Autos, Petrol Pumps, grocery shops, restaurants, multiplex, parking, pharmacies, hospitals, Kirana stores, etc
Please note, that you will need an existing Paytm account to use this service. You will have to call this Toll Free number from your mobile number registered with Paytm.

This will allow even non-smartphone users across India go cashless,” added Nitin Mishra, Senior Vice President for Paytm.
