PayTM launch a new toll-free number that will enable feature phone and non-internet users to go cashless with Paytm. Users can call toll free number and pay any Paytm customer without an active internet connection.
How to use Paytm without Internet or smartphone?
To do this, user need to call PayTM toll free phone number – 1800 1800 1234 – you will have to call it from your registered mobile number in order to set your PIN. You’ll hear a voice message letting you know that you’ll get a call back to set the PIN.
After that, you can make payments using Paytm without Internet and smartphone by calling this number, typing in the phone number of the recipient, then the amount, and finally typing in your PIN for confirmation.
Where can this Paytm toll free number be used?
Although it’s not the easiest method for making payments, there could be a number of situations where this feature of using Paytm without Internet or smartphones is useful.
For example, several of us have older relatives who still prefer to use feature phones for the simplicity of use. For such users, who are now forced to transact digitally owing to the demonetisation of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 notes, Paytm’s toll free number would be helpful. On the other hand, for people who are still using feature phones because they don’t have a smartphone, this number, along with a visit to a cyber cafe, could be very empowering. And of course, there are also people who might prefer to use this method rather than tap through multiple screens on an app.
