Paytm has been added to Twitter’s list of supported payment methods for its Tips function. As part of Twitter’s efforts to monetize the microblogging network, along with Ticketed Spaces, this functionality was announced last year. Since last year, Twitter has supported Indian payment service Razorpay for providing Tips. According to Twitter, those who want to tip a Twitter user will be redirected to the tipping app of their choice.
As of this past Wednesday, Twitter users will be able to send tips via Paytm to their followers on the microblogging service. Those who have enabled the option can simply hit the Tips icon on any account to access the app and make the payment. If you use Paytm, Twitter says it will not collect a share of the transaction fee. Customers will be able to pay using UPI, debit and credit cards as well as net banking when Paytm joins the list of payment providers on Twitter.
Users over the age of 18 were able to utilise the Tips feature in November 2021 after it had been tested by the platform’s founders and journalists since May 2021. Many Indian languages, such as Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Marathi and Tamil already have the feature. Tips can be enabled on Twitter in India by adding a Razorpay account, Patreon account, or Bitcoin and Ethereum wallet address, as well as Paytm, to your account.
In order to enable the Tips feature, users must complete the following steps:
1. Navigate to your profile on the Twitter app for iOS and Android.
2. Tap on Edit Profile.
3. Select Tips, then select the Allow tips option and choose a payment platform to complete setup.
Along with Bitcoin and Ethereum wallets, Patreon and Razorpay accounts, users of iOS and Android devices may now add Paytm as a provider to their list of payment options. Using third-party services, such as Paytm, does not result in a commission for the company, as previously stated. Visitors will be able to send Tips to users who have enabled the feature, who will subsequently notice a new button on their profile and can choose the appropriate payment option to complete the transaction.
