Offline Growth in Last One Year

“Offline growth has happened in the last one year after demonetization, with Paytm acquiring over 5 million merchants with QR code acceptance in one year,“ said Kiran Vasireddy, COO, Paytm.

Vasireddy further added that “Majority of growth in offline payments is from smaller towns and cities which resulted in over $1.6 billion worth of transactions in a month, making this the largest Diwali for mobile payments in India.”
