You can now use Paytm to tip your favourite creators on Twitter

Paytm has been added to Twitters list of payment options for tips

Twitter began testing its Tips feature with a select group of users in May 2021, a group of "influential and varied voices on the service, including journalists, creators, and others who help make Twitter, Twitter," according to the company. Following these testing, Twitter made the service available to all Indian users above the age of 18 on iOS and Android.

Tips on Twitter allow you to tip your favourite creators right from their profiles, allowing you to offer support with a simple click. It's essentially a new way to monetize tweets and Tips, with users being able to donate and receive money as a "token of appreciation."

Twitter has announced that Paytm, a payment gateway, will now be an additional payment provider for Tips in India.

"Turning on Tips adds an icon next to your profile, which will now also have a link to Paytm, for quick and easy person-to-person tipping," Twitter explained in a release.

When you touch on the Tips icon, you'll be able to view the Paytm and other payment service options that the person you're trying to tip has enabled, and you can choose the one that best suits your needs.

Once you've chosen a service, you'll be taken off the platform to the payment app of your choice, where you can send money. These suggestions are not paid for by Twitter.

The creator to whom you're sending tips will get them immediately in their bank accounts through the connected payment service provider app, exactly as it does in all other circumstances.

"Through Paytm's interface, people will be able to support individuals and organisations across India via multiple modes of payment including UPI, credit and debit cards, net banking, wallets and more," the platform added.

In India, the Tips function is accessible in Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Marathi, and Tamil, among other Indian languages.
