The man in the video scans a Paytm QR to make an instant payment of 1 rupee after his prayer. Recently, another picture shared by an Instagram user shows a flower seller accepting payments with Paytm’s all-in-one QR.
The user captioned the image, “The story of India's digital payment revolution is incredible! hats off to whoever initiated the project and the team which executed this massive project!!!”

It serves as a reminder of the convenience and ease of using Paytm for making payments and how the app is becoming an integral part of our daily lives. These are just a few examples of Paytm enabling digital payments as part of its mission to bring half a billion Indians to the mainstream economy.
