You can send money directly to someone’s PAYTM’s wallet or to their Bank account.
Friends, topping up of mobile is one of day to day process nowadays, everyone has been using either PAYTM or another mobile wallet to get recharge their mobile.
You can earn/ receive money in your PAYTM wallet either in the form of cashback or from your friend, then you can use this cash only on those places where PAYTM is accepted eg. shops, toll bridge, petrol filling stations etc. who have clearly mentioned on their institutions, but not to withdraw money from ATM or to pay a random vegetable seller who doesn’t have a smart phone or a rickshaw puller who doesn’t own a mobile.
In most cases, where a shopkeeper or other business would accept PAYTM will be there to help you to make a payment, and also to avail quick acknowledgment of payment. You may earn some cashback.
Congratulations, you have earned some money.
But what to do to use this cashback to use on the shops that do not accept PAYTM yet.
In this case, you would need to send money from the PAYTM wallet to a bank account or converting it to hard cash.
We shall visit it shortly before that let’s have a look at the benefits of using PAYTM to send money:
- You would not need to visit a bank, in this way you help your bank to serve less number of customers with more quality.
- Saves you to stand in a queue.
- Saves you to ‘Fill up’ various forms to do so.
In this way, these 3 benefits translate into ‘time-saving,’ also reduces to use of paper made forms – hence ‘environment-friendly’ too.
Your bank account also has got a different set of function, and those functions are way more important in day to day life. They allow you to –

Well… I understand that you are desperate to learn to send that cashback back to your bank account, and also, you might have tried a lot to achieve this previously, but without luck, because there is no such documentation available to help you.
This is why I have picked this issue to help you, so let’s get the ball rolling. (Though, this walkthrough is for Mobile apps you can also follow it on the website of PAYTM.)
Step 1: Open PAYTM app
Step 2: Another simple step yet, just tap/click on Pay or Send, shown in the above screenshot.
Step 3: tap on 'Send to Bank,' the fourth option in the above screenshot.
Step 4: Fill in the details. That is (Refer to the screenshot shown above)
4.1> Name of the account holder or whom you want to send money
4.2> Their valid account number.
4.3> Thereafter, input bank number, oh IFSC Code technically.
4.4> Thereafter input money that you want to send. On this step PAYTM will apply tax(s) rate, which comes to 2.997% on input money.
4.5> If you want to name this transaction like for "Rohan’s School Fee" etc. to furnish this in ‘What is it for?’ row or just leave as it is.
After finishing up screen will look similar to the following screenshot:
Step 5: If everything that you have furnished is valid then tap on the Send button.
Step 6: The PAYTM’s system will send you an OTP on your registered mobile number with it.
Enter it and click on the Verify button
That’s it, you have done your job nicely and now, you will be taken to the confirmation screen shown below.
It gives you a transaction ID, this ID is really helpful when something goes wrong. You are advised to click on the 'Have an issue?' button, then you would be needing this transaction ID.
Step 7: If not, then you can share this transaction's status through 'WhatsApp' or your desired app to share this news:
I hope you have received a confirmation SMS from your bank. I bet, that you are smiling after seeing that notification. :-P
You can go to the nearest ATM now, and do the needful to obtain a hard-cash.
