Paytm, India’s largest mobile payments and commerce platform, has invited selected women sellers from across India (Karnataka, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi/NCR) to interact with their senior management in formulating a long term future roadmap for supporting women entrepreneurs in the country.
Vice President Paytm, Sudhanshu Gupta, was quoted by agencies as saying, “We have seen a lot of women entrepreneurs register on our platform and take a keen interest in participating in the online growth story. They come from very diverse platforms and regions that include homemakers, career women even Instagram sellers.”
The unprecedented growth of e-commerce in India has given entrepreneurs a national platform to sell from and build their brand. Entrepreneurs are also being backed by the government’s Make in India initiative – an initiative Paytm strongly backs.
Paytm currently has over one lakh sellers and aims to have five lakh active sellers by the end of next year.
