Paytm, the Noida-based digital payments and technology platform, on Monday announced the launch of its Android Mini App Store to support Indian app developers to take their products to the Indian masses. In a release, the payments unicorn said that Mini apps are a custom-built mobile website that gives users an app-like experience without having to download them.
Paytm is providing listing and distribution of these mini-apps within its app, without any charges. For payments, developers will be able to give a choice of Paytm Wallet, Paytm Payments Bank, UPI, net banking, and cards to their users, it added.
Speaking on the development, Vijay Shekhar Sharma, Founder, and CEO, Paytm, said, “Paytm Mini App Store empowers our young Indian developers to leverage our reach and payments to build new innovative services. For Paytm users, it will be a seamless experience that doesn’t require any separate download, and enables them to use their preferred payment option.”
Paytm Mini App Store has over 300 app-based service providers such as Decathalon, Ola, Park+, Rapido, Netmeds, 1MG, Domino’s Pizza, FreshMenu, and NoBroker.
