First of all, install the paytm app on your smartphone. You can download this app from Google Play Store or any other platforms or Click here to download & install PayTM.

If you have already installed PayTM then skip this and read below:

There are four methods to accept or receive money using PayTM. I have arranged them in the order according to their usability and easiness. Here I am giving you a short summary of all the 4 methods, you can choose any of them you prefer:

 

Method 1: In this method, you show the QR Code to the payer, The payer scans it, enters the amount & purpose of paying (optional). And clicks on OK/Send to complete the transaction. Jump to this method.

Method 2: This method is almost same to the first one but in this method, you already have set a fixed amount to be paid and the purpose of it, The payer only scans the code and clicks on pay to complete the transaction. Jump to this method.

Method 3: In this method, the payer shows the QR Code and/or Barcode to the receiver. The receiver scans the code, enters the amount & purpose and completes the transaction. This method must be done within 1 minute because it refreshes the code automatically in every minute. Jump to this method.

Method 4: In this method, the receiver should reveal his mobile no. which is not safe/preferred for most of us so this method is rarely used and that also in between friends and family only. However, in this method, the payer enters the mobile no., amount & purpose. Then clicks on pay to complete the transaction. Jump to this method.
