The platform is revolutionizing offline commerce by enabling instant paperless and no-cost EMIs to consumers. Besides enhancing the buyers’ experience by giving them an instant credit limit of Rs. 2 lacs, Paytail is also transforming the selling experience of merchants through innovative technology solutions.

Speaking on the capital injection, Vikas Garg, co-founder of Paytail, said, “Since its inception, Paytail has been on a mission to create a level field for both offline buyers and sellers, as the retailers in this sector have been facing fierce competition from large e-businesses. We are trying to address the real pain points in a segment that contributes 95% of India’s retail, away from the internet-only offerings of the present BNPL players. With this funding, we will be able to enhance the product and build a strong team. We have the vision to create the largest retail BNPL Fintech in India and are efficiently working towards it.”
