This app turns paying your bills into a fun (rewarding) game

Oct 20 2018, 2:17 am

Ever get the feeling that adulting is all work and paying bills? We get you, but here’s a twist:

Paying bills doesn’t have to suck.

When you pay any bill from your smartphone via Canadian mobile payments app Paytm Canada, you’ll get something back. There’s no catch, hidden tricks, or anything that will make you roll your eyes after a couple of weeks using the app.

Here’s why it’s going to be your new favourite adulting tool.

You’ll collect points


If you’re skeptical about using a new app because of some bad experiences when you didn’t get the free stuff/rewards you were promised, don’t be. This one’s different. For every transaction that you make with the app, you’ll collect Paytm points: 1 point = $1 spent.

Now for a limited time, if you become a new Paytm customer, you’ll receive 10,000 welcome points just for downloading the app and signing up. Then you can instantly redeem the points for your favourite treats; coffee, a trip to the movies, clothes, and more.

To get rewards like this

To recap, you’ll collect Paytm points with every transaction that you make, including both bills that you pay and gift card purchases you make. The more points you collect, the more you’ll have to spend with brands like Cineplex,, Just Eat, Tim Hortons, Uber and more.

When you’ve collected a minimum of 5,000 points, you can redeem them for a $5 Tim Hortons gift card. If you’re not a coffee drinker there’s always doughnuts, or you can treat a friend to an impromptu coffee. Aww.

Bring your favourite people on board

Not many apps offer perks that let you refer a friend and give you both something back because of it. But Paytm does. When you refer a friend, you’ll collect 5,000 points and your friend will too as soon as they pay a bill of at least $50.

It’s a simple win-win if you ask us.

Your data will be safe

Thousands of Canadians put their trust in Paytm and that’s why the company has implemented the same encryption technology that most Canadian banks use. Paytm understands the importance of keeping your data safe and secure.

They’ve got transaction limits, they don’t sell your data or ask for your information. And they don’t make any money through bill payments. There are multiple payment methods you can use and easily link your credit card, debit card, bank account or add money to your Paytm Cash. Find out more about that here.

Maximize your time

You can search from thousands of service providers to pay all of your bills from your smartphone with the Paytm Canada app, no matter where you are. Whether you’re waiting in line for a coffee or on a quick break at work, you can get your bills paid and out of the way quickly – and get rewarded at the same time.

Download the Paytm app for free on the iTunes or Google Play stores now.

Pay a bill of at least $25 and get $5 off when you use the promo code HIVEMONTREAL on the checkout screen. (This promo code expires on October 31, 2018, and is not applicable for credit cards or securities transactions.) Plus, you’ll collect points for your transaction!
