This is one of the reasons people in general still don’t trust e-commerce companies.

They change policies at the drop of a hat & start charging fees out of blue.

Of course it wasn’t sustainable business model to begin with, but still people will feel cheated. Paytm should have advertised this as a paid service being given for free for a limited time.

That way people won’t feel any breach of trust.

Only if you had slightest of the ideas.

Paytm was free only for accepting upto 50k per month which automatically excludes all the medium to big size merchants.

This was intended for really small merchants. They already have really low margins. This 2% + GST is really hard to accommodate.

I think they should reduce the fee to 0.5% instead of 2% and then 90% of the small merchants won’t leave.

Even earlier though many small merchants were accepting payments with Paytm, most people paid by cash only. I never saw anybody except me paying with Paytm at all outlets I visited. Even I paid by Paytm only till they offered some cashback for such payments. Merchants always preferred payments in cash.

The only losers in this decision are small merchants like us who were using this facility to transfer our cashback to bank account. If Paytm maintains its cashback rates at same high rates of 65-70%, we will stand to gain at a small fee of 2%. Remember, cashback on all other sites such as PhonePe, Tapzo, Payzapp, Niki etc. still cannot be transferred to bank.
