Paytm was founded by Vijay Shekhar Sharma in 2010 in Noida.It was started as online recharge company for mobile phones and DTH.At starting it was funded by it's parent company that is ONE97 which is founded by the Vijay shekar sharma itself.ONE97 holds only 40% of the paytm shares while most of the shares were hold by ALibaba chinese biggest e-commerce store and small companies with a small shares


Earning through platforms and type of earnings

Recharge of mobile and DTH providers services. By taking comission from companies
Government Based services like Electricity bill etc No profit they earn through this segment.
E-commerce Business By taking comission from shopkeepers to sell their items online
E-wallet No profit earns through this segment
Payment Gateway (search google if you don't know payment gateway) Earning through comission from websites where paytm gateway is installed.


How they are giving such a large amount of CashBack

So let this crack out, As you know paytm gives you cashback when you recharge from it, basically what paytm does, Paytm charges comission whenever any customer recharge their phone from any comapny.And that recieved comission is your CashBack.

Didn't get it?

Let's take an example, suppose you have sim of Airtel and you recharge your balance through Paytm.So what acutally happen is, when you recharge, Airtel gives comission to Paytm it may go around 2% to 5% comission.After recieving comission, Paytm sends you that comission in the form of CashBack. As simple it is.


Then How they earn profit?

Well, they are not earning any profit from E-wallet.As I mentioned above the table you can see that E-wllet is not earning any profit

But why Paytm is doing this?

Simply because they want to increase their customer base as much they can, as company is in their early stages
