Paytm on Tuesday announced that it is organising a Mini Apps Developers Conference on October 8 in a bid to help app makers drive a digital revolution in India, as well as lessen Indian apps' dependency on Google's Play Store following the tech giant's controversial decision of charging 30% commission for digital subscription services.
The company said it will list and distribute these mini-apps, within its own app, for free. The developers of these apps can use Paytm's wallet services to charge clients, or enable payments via UPI, net banking, and cards.
More than 300 app-based service providers such as Decathlon, Ola, Park+, Rapido, Netmeds, 1MG, Domino's Pizza, FreshMenu, and NoBroker, among others have already joined the mini-apps programme, Paytm said.
The conference will include a discussion on why India should control its own app ecosystem destiny, and what the future holds for Indian apps, along with the opening keynote by Vijay Shekhar Sharma.
