Paytm Canada, a payments and financial services company that offers a mobile payments and commerce platform, has partnered with Payment Source an alternative payments provider.
Using Payment Source’s proprietary Loadhub in-person payment network, Canadians can walk into any of the 6,000 Canada Post locations and directly deposit cash into their Paytm app without incurring any transaction costs.

With the Payment Source partnership, Paytm Canada’s mobile bill pay application now offers Canadians, who prefer dealing in cash the ability to top-up the Paytm app with cash in order to pay their bills. Paytm Canada allows Canadians to pay their bills at more than 5000 billers instantly through their cell phones and earn rewards and cashback offers for doing so. Canadians can add money to the Paytm app from their bank account, debit card or via cash with no transaction fees
“We are very excited to partner with Payment Source to add the Canada Post network to our platform, and to open doors to Canadians who otherwise would not be able to add cash to their Paytm account,” said Harinder Takhar, CEO Paytm Labs. “Paytm Canada is tenaciously revolutionizing the bill payment experience to provide all Canadians a seamless, instant and cost-free mobile account to manage their bill payments.”
