Partner merchants would have to enter into direct agreements with Paytm and complete the entire process of payment solely on the company’s platform if they wish to access its wallet services. Paytm tied up with Ezetap in October 2015 for the platform to accept wallet payments. Ezetap at the time had said that it has more than 70,000 Smart POS services points as merchants.

This allows the entire base of FreeCharge users to immediately start using their wallets to make payments at thousands of Ezetap service points consisting of small and mid-sized retailers across India. Ezetap’s Universal Mobile Wallet Acceptance is India’s first universal solution that allows merchants to accept customer payments from any mobile wallet through their existing Ezetap mobile point of sale application. This will enable the wallet consumers to use FreeCharge both not just online but at over 40000 offline points too.
