Paytm has started offering its Physical debit cards to the users. After rolling out the Paytm Bank feature, the company is now rolling out the Paytm debit cards. These cards can be used at ATMs like any other bank cards. As of now, only iPhones users can avail the Paytm debit card and it will soon be available to Android users as well.
Moreover, the Paytm iOS app has received an update which enables users to setup BHIM UPI (one-touch payment) as well. It is to be noted that the BHIM UPI has already been available for the Android users. The BHIM UPI feature enables Paytm users to receive and transfer money directly into their bank account free of cost.
Paytm debit card
The interesting part of the latest iOS update is the Paytm Debit card. Paytm users who have a Paytm Payments bank account already got a virtual debit card which can be used to shop online on multiple e-com websites. Now, they also can use the physical debit card.
So, those who don’t have a Paytm ban account can open it by giving their Aadhaar card details and get the debit card. Also, unlike the virtual card, the Physical debit card comes at a nominal fee of Rs.120. One has to confirm the postal address, where he likes to receive the same.
Also, like other debit cards issued by the banks, this card can also be used in ATMs, Shopping malls, e-commerce websites like a normal card without any restrictions. As this card is a Rupay card so this is valid only in India.
