Paytm Payments Bank introduces RuPay Credit Card on UPI
Paytm Bank users need to link their RuPay credit card to their UPI ID to avail the service.
Paytm Payments Bank Limited (PPBL) in collaboration with the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) has introduced RuPay Credit Card on UPI. With the linkage of RuPay Credit Cards on UPI, customers can use their credit cards through UPI.
The Reserve Bank of India had last year approved the linking of RuPay credit cards with UPI for a digitally enabled credit card lifecycle experience for users. For seamless and secure transactions, users need to link their RuPay credit card to their UPI ID.
After linking the RuPay credit card to UPI ID, users can simply pay the merchants by scanning the UPI-enabled QR code via the Paytm app, eliminating the need to carry cards all the time. Both offline and online payments will become faster as transactions can be done using the UPI ID linked to the RuPay credit card in a hassle-free manner.
Customers can pay merchants by scanning the Paytm QR code and paying through UPI, thus there won’t be any need to carry credit cards.

With 386.50 million registered transactions, Paytm Payments Bank is one of the top 10 remitter banks for UPI transactions, according to NPCI’s latest report.
