Paytm announced its partnership with Mastercard which enables issuing both virtual and physical cards.

Initially, the company started issuing only virtual debit cards to beta customers. This way, they could perform secure online transactions, making an everyday purchase faster, easier, and safer. Soon this will be available for all Paytm customers.

Besides, they will also have an option to request a physical card, which will enable them to carry out contactless in-store transactions supported by Mastercard’s chip-based technology.

In addition to that, the bank will allow withdrawing cash at more than 1 million ATM terminals across most of the world.

While digital payments are taking off in India, growing faster than many other countries around the world, 90% of all retail transactions are still in cash. Mastercard is committed to the Government of India’s vision to fuel the growth of digital payments. Towards this goal, Mastercard is pleased to offer its fully-integrated global payment platform to Paytm Payments Bank to enable cardholders to have access to the safest way of making electronic payments
