Flipkart allows PhonePe rival Paytm at checkout
Flipkart has started integrating Paytm's e-wallet on its platform even as it continues to compete with its unit PhonePe for the high stakes online payments market. Paytm's e-wallet and Unified Payments Interface (UPI) integration on Flipkart is already being rolled out to users gradually and it would be available to everyone eventually.
Paytm, one of the leading mobile wallets competes against Flipkart's payment unit PhonePe in both e-wallets and fast-growing UPI payments. Both platforms have had their share of taking digs at each other in public, with the most recent one being the Yes Bank moratorium scare in March when PhonePe was unavailable for nearly 24 hours.
