Paytm Ambassadors work, as familiar faces that help break the ice and provide the trust these users need, to take their first digital leap. ”
The Paytm ambassadors, promote the use cases of Paytm app to enable users to pay the institute fees and dues, cafeteria bills as well as buy uniforms, books and merchandise and make payments at the tuck shops. It is the ambassadors’ mission to help minimizing cash in the campuses and the initiative shall be highly beneficial for the students and parents alike.

Paytm campus ambassadors will play a huge role within campuses on encouraging students to be part of this revolution. We believe, this initiative would definitely add further impetus to our mission of making India, a cashless society. ”
