Paytm was founded by Vijay Shekhar Sharma in August 2010; it is based out of Noida.
It started off as a digital wallet-based payments system and has familiarized us with digital wallet use and scanning QR codes.
However, of late, Paytm added its own e-commerce marketplace, started a payments bank, and launched investment schemes.
Here's a list of 5 exclusive features that Paytm offers.
