1 Paytm, Journey from Mobile Recharge to e-commerce market Case StudyPaytm, Journey from Mobile Recharge to e-commerce market
2 HistoryFounded in 2010, Paytm started as a prepaid mobile recharge website.Currently its business is not only limited to recharge but has expanded as online payment platform including mobile recharges, utility bill payment, wallet payment and wallet to wallet and wallet to bank transfers for many leading internet based companies like Bookmyshow, Makemytrip, FoodPanda, IRCTC and many others.
3 It was founded under the implemented idea of Vijay Shekhar Sharma and has got the first mover advantage in the mobile industry.The name Paytm is supposedly an acronym for Pay Through Mobile.The company has been backed up by Alibaba group and Ratan Tata. The firm raised $575 million from Alibaba group for a share of 25% in the company.
4 RecognitionsIn 2012, Paytm was recognized as the ‘Most Innovative Startup of the Year’ at the Entrepreneur India event organized by Franchise India. In 2013, the company received several awards, such as Knowledge Faber Best Mobile Wallet Program Award, a special mention in m Billionth Awards in mCommerce/mBusiness category, and MMA Smarties Award for mCommerce.
5 What's 'Virtual' about this wallet? The basic concept is really simple - a virtual wallet just serves as a place to hold some of your money online. You make payments using the money stored in your wallet instead of using a credit card, debit card or net banking, which means your bank account doesn't need to be accessed. Of course, adding money to the wallet still requires you to use one of those methods.
6 Why would you want to do this? The biggest reason is probably ease of use - something that is particularly true for mobile users. Unless the site you want to make a payment on lets you save your credit or debit card details, you're going to have to spend a fair bit of time typing them in every time you need to make a payment.
7 How paytm makes money through mobile recharge? The primary revenue source is commissions from Telcos which ranges from 2%(for large & Established operators) to as high as 5% (for new & small operators). This again depends on whether you are directly connected to the Telco's recharge platform or are using an Aggregator (like Oxigen, Euronet, Cyberplat). The margins would be lower in case of the latter.
8 Since the large operators contribute to the bulk of the txn volume, the average commission earned per txn would typically be in the 2.5-3% range.The average payment gateway charges are typically in the 1.8-2% range (will be lower now after the recent 1% cap on debit card MDR by RBI).The net revenue per txn would therefore be around 0.5-1%. And that's the revenue (not profit) a recharge site makes.
9 Reasons for exponential growth: - Huge untapped market - Convenience - Lure of free coupons - Google ads
