The Paytm QR code allows you to transfer money wirelessly just by scanning, without the need to enter the recipient’s phone number or any other information. However, not many people know that the Paytm app allows you to scan QR codes not only using the camera but also from your iPhone’s photo gallery. This means that you can scan a Paytm QR code even if you don’t have access to that code physically. Makes things easier if you want to send money to someone’s Paytm account but don’t have their phone number handy.
Today, many stores in India have a Paytm QR Code that accepts cashless payments. Paytm also allows people to share the QR code to receive money from others. But if you don’t have physical access to the Paytm QR code, you can scan them on your iPhone through your photo gallery.
How to scan a Paytm QR code from the gallery on your iPhone
Before starting the procedure to scan a Paytm QR code from the gallery on your iPhone is worth noting that you need to grant the camera access to the Paytm app. It is also important to note that you should not send money to a stranger using the QR code you received through a social media site or through an instant messaging application, as it could be a scam.
- Open the Paytm application on your iPhone.
Go to the Pay option from the home screen.
Press the gallery icon, available next to the torch button, on the right side of the camera viewfinder.
Now, select one of the images from your gallery that has the required Paytm QR code.
Paytm will now show you a pop-up message asking you to confirm the payment. Tap on the Ok I have it to continue.
You will arrive at the payment screen once the scan is complete. Make sure you have verified the name of the person and the account you are about to send your money to before making a transaction.
