One97 Communications Limited owns the brand Paytm, India’s leading digital payments and financial services company, is one of the largest enablers of merchant loans in the country, supporting millions of its merchant partners to avail instant credit for business purposes. The company has partnered with scheduled commercial banks and NBFCs to offer collateral-free instant loans of up to ₹500,000 at a low-interest rate and also offers a unique daily EMI product customized for small merchants.
The loans can be availed from the 'Merchant Lending Program' in the Paytm for Business app. The algorithm determines the creditworthiness of the merchant based on his daily transactions and arrives at a pre-qualified loan offering.
With a completely digital loan application process, there are no additional documents required. Loan repayment is primarily collected from the merchant’s daily settlement with Paytm and there are no prepayment charges on these loans.
So whether it’s a business expansion in terms of increasing the area of your shop or increasing stock in the shop, lack of liquidity will no longer stop you from growing your business.
