More and more merchants stopped receiving magicpin, Earlier everyone seems to be on it but now around 60% starts to reject them and say like We don’t accept it anymore, We didn’t make a recharge and so on…

It seems like only restaurants and Bars barely accepting them and I saw this is growing in Delhi.

Complained about this on magicpin why list those stores if they don’t accept it, support be like we escalated the issue but then nothing, even app shows last redeemed a month ago.

I think it’s time to cash in your points while you can before they totally go out.

No more good offers on app as well.
Looks like they have got what they wanted. Data about consumer purchases from you and me. Now they will sell that data about your purchasing pattern.

I agree that it is not as useful as before. Discount also reduced to 10% on most of the merchants.
But it is still good for buying gift vouchers and doing mobile recharge.

Yes I do same…I only buy amazon gift cards with it. My last 2 transactions with amazon with 5% discount and paid with OLA Money and received another 5% cashback.

Yep that’s the reason most of them tell not to make payment using MagicPay..
Hefty registration fee + failure to pay the client..

i dont beleive there is fixed fee as such

its completly based on % as fees, similar to what restaurents give to zomato or swiggy.

26k would be for the banner ads.

They’re adding more and more restaurants every week out of which so many doesn’t even have any idea how magicpin works.
