The Paytm QR code allows you to transfer money wirelessly by simply scanning them, without having to enter the recipient’s phone number or any other details. 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 photo gallery. This means that you can scan a Paytm QR code even if you do not have physical access to that code. This makes it easier if you want to send money to someone’s Paytm account but don’t have their phone number handy.
Nowadays, many stores across India have a Paytm QR code to accept cashless payments. Paytm also allows individuals to share the QR code to receive money from other people. 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 your iPhone gallery
Before starting the procedure of scanning a Paytm QR code from your iPhone gallery, it should be pointed out that you need to allow 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 networking site or through an instant messaging app, as it could be a simple scam.
Open the Paytm app on your iPhone.
To go to the Pay option from the home screen.
Tap 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 which contains the required Paytm QR code.
Paytm will now show you a pop-up message asking you to confirm the payment. Press the Ok I understood button to continue.
You will reach the payment screen when 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.
