The Paytm Canada app is unique—and incredibly special—in the sense that it offers users a seamless and convenient way to pay all their bills using their smartphone. And, you will collect Paytm Points with with every transaction, which you can redeem for a free or discounted e-gift card.
“We have become very popular over the last few months not just in Brampton, but across Canada! Since our app is so easy to use and convenient,” says Naqiyah Rampuri, Director, Growth Strategy at Paytm Canada. “The responses have been so welcoming, and positive. We’re excited to be able to provide a service that makes everyones lives a little simpler.”
So, how exactly does the Paytm Canada app work?
You can add a bill from a major service provider such as your credit card bill, your mobile bill, your utility bill, even your property tax bill —think Rogers or Bell or Enbridge (they have over 5,000 service providers to choose from). And, they have the option of adding multiple payment methods for your convenience. So you can add your bank account, credit card and even top-up your Paytm Cash —and then pay all your bills using the App. For every transaction that you make with the app, you will collect Paytm Points—which means one point equals $1 spent. Whenever you pay a bill, you collect Paytm Points and become eligible for rewards from popular brands like: Uber, Esso, Starbucks, Sephora, Indigo and many more.
Beyond simplicity, the service offers great rewards for using the app. It’s also got some incredible promotions that will take away the post-holiday spending blues.
So, what are their current promotions?
Right now, Paytm customers can enter the Daily Draw Contest, that’s running from now until January 31 that allows users who pay a bill of at least a $50 using the App to be automatically entered into a daily draw to win 50,000 Paytm Points ($50 value).
If customers pay a bill of at least $100 using the App, they will also be automatically entered into the Daily Draw Contest for 100,000 Paytm Points ($100 value). You can read more about it here.
“The Winners are provided with 50,000 Paytm Points and/or 100,000 Paytm Points which will be available in their Paytm account,” says Rampuri.
Customers are allowed multiple entries and 1 per payment category (mobile, property tax, credit card etc.). Winners from the draw from Jan 1-14 will be announced on Jan 21. And, Winners from Jan 15-31 will be announced on February 5.
Paytm says winners will be selected randomly.
“2018 was such a successful year for us, and there really isn’t a better way to say thank you to all of our loyal customers,” says Rampuri. “We decided to have the 50,000 Points and 100,000 Points Daily Draw Contest run for two months so that everyone can participate and have the potential chance to be a winner.”
Another promotion that’s ongoing is the Earn 5x The Paytm Points promotion.
As for how that works, from now until February 8 at 11:59 p.m.(EST), Paytm customers will get a 5x Bonus Paytm Points, specifically for credit card bill payments. While customers typically earn 1 point per dollar spent, the promo will allow them to earn that 1 point per dollar spent plus an extra 5x bonus points.
For example, a credit card bill of $500 dollar will net them 500 Points instantly, plus 2500 Bonus Paytm Points, to be deposited on February 15th to their Paytm account (maximum of 5,000 Points will be credited).
“Our customers can redeem their Paytm Points instantly for free or discounted rewards from our Rewards marketplace. They can even convert the Paytm Points into Paytm Cash and use it towards paying a bill or sending money to anyone in Canada that also has the Paytm Canada app.”
The Company knows that the promotions, especially the 5x Points promo, couldn’t come at a better time.

If you overspent this year don’t worry, we’re here to help! Especially if tackling your finances is one of your New Year’s resolutions,” says Rampuri.
As for what truly sets Paytm apart from the competition, the company says it makes paying bills more rewarding.
