Paytm Partners CCD, Domino’s for Offline Payment


Paytm's is loved by the shoppers, not just because it is gives awesome deals and offers but the kind of the compatibility it gives to the shoppers. Be it shopping online or be it ordering the food offline while sitting at a restaurant like Domino's of CCD, Paytm is there to help customers. This mobile commerce company has been backed by the ecommerce giant Alibaba.com and since its inception it has seen an unprecedented rise in the customer base.


Well, this time it is back with the collaboration with these offline physical food retail outlet like Domino's and Cafe Coffee Day so that if the a user Paytm is feelonghungry then it is there to help him/her out. Paytm is a mobile commerce platform which offers and recharge services for DTH (direct-to-home) and mobile networks mainly along with it, Paytm gives exclusive offers and discounts on apparels and other retail products which can be bought online.


According to the Vice-President of Paytm Mr. Amit Lakhotia:

"We are now foraying into the offline space. We have partnered various QSRs covering 7,000-10,000 outlets in cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Hyderabad, The integration is on and the service should be available by mid-June, Mobile wallet usage is definitely growing in the country. On our platform alone, about 66 million people are using the wallet services and the number will cross 100 million much before the year ends, and by going offline, Paytm will offer customers the choice to pay through a secure and reliable platform,"

Paytm functions as a digital wallet where you can store money and make purchases through it. Every time you make some purchase or do any kind of recharge, the Paytm gives you some cashback on the money you have in wallet. THe money, if you need back in your account, will be transferred into your back account, whenever you want. This is not the first time when Paytm has collaborated wuth any business to benefit its customers.

As of now, Paytm is expecting a revenue of around $4 billion (Rs 26,000 crore) by the end of this year. It is $1.5 (10,000 crores aprox.) billion now. Febuary was a golden month for Paytm as Alibaba acquired a 25 per cent stake in One97 Communications, which is the parent company of mobile commerce firm Paytm.


No more FREE delivery on Amazon India. Online shoppers are shocked to hear the news!


Amazon has been known for redirecting the online shopping to the new dimensions of growth and integration. It is not just because of brand but number of products, quality, delivery and customer support which makes Amazon India as a pioneer in Indian ecommerce space. However there has been an inadvertent step which has been taken by company without any prior notice which has left all of the customers in shock. The delivery part of this brilliantly managed company has been altered and the company is now charging a few more bucks over the traditional zero delivery system. Hence there would not be further Free Delivery on products purchased via Amazon.

Here is the list of changes which company has decided to make : 

Guaranteed delivery system has also been announced to be available for the eligible items listed on product pages. Have a look:

The step is very bold and brave indeed. But despite of knowing about the heavy competition from Flipkart and Snapdeal, why did Amazon took this step?

The answer is Forecasting. Amazon has forecasted one thing that it would not be possible to keep giving free delivery on the products less than Rs.499 for a longer run. So in order to avoid heavy loss of costumer base and money in future, Amazon took this step now for the long run. This would save the money on delivery and we can probably see more discounts on the products. 

Anyways best of luck Amazon. For more details you can visit here.
