Updated: Please note as of April 1, 2020, there are changes that impact customer paying bills in our app using credit and debit cards.
We are SO excited to announce that we now accept Visa credit card for the following bill payment categories: Property Taxes, Utilities, Rent, and Education.
Back in January of 2018, we removed Visa when we were informed that some card issuers would treat a Visa credit card payment as a “Cash Advance.” This meant that Paytm customers paying any bill with a Visa credit card, may have incurred additional fees on their bill payment.
Today, you can use your Visa credit card for Rent, Property Taxes, Utilities AND Education bill payments. We are thrilled to be the only place that lets Canadians pay their Property Taxes and Education bills with a credit card!
With this new added payment method we want to continue to provide you with the best bill payment experience in Canada. We now officially accept the following payment methods: Visa debit and credit, Mastercard debit and credit, American Express, a linked bank account and Paytm cash. It’s important to note that there are some convenience fees associated with using a credit card or debit card for bill payments, and you can find out more about that here.
Collect Points and Redeem For Rewards
No matter which payment method you use to pay your bills, you will still collect Paytm Points for every payment that you make using the Paytm Canada app. For every $1 you spend in the app (either by paying a bill or purchasing an e-gift card) we’ll give you 1 Paytm Point that can be redeemed for discounted rewards from popular brands like: Uber, Tim Hortons, Hudson’s Bay and more.
Plus, you can earn 5,000 Paytm Points just for referring a friend – AND they’ll also get 5,000 Paytm Points. All you have to do is refer a friend using your unique code through our app and when they successfully pay their first bill of $50 or more we’ll reward you both with 5,000 Paytm Points, aka a $5 e-gift card!
As you can probably tell, we’re constantly working on improving our app for you! We recently revamped our sign-up / sign-in process, updated our app homepage (making it even easier for you to collect points & redeem rewards), and we have a ton more updates coming soon! Be sure to follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to stay in the loop with the latest updates from us!
