Twitter brings Paytm to Tips in India

Whether you want to tip your favourite creators because their Tweets make you laugh or small business owners who you admire — whoever you want to support, Tips makes it easy. Back in May 2021, Twitter started experimenting with this feature with a small test group of some influential and diverse voices on the service, including journalists, creators, and more who help make Twitter, Twitter. Since November of last year, Tips is available to all individuals above 18 years of age on iOS and Android in India. It is a new way to monetise on Twitter and enables people on the service to send and receive funds as a token of appreciation.

Starting today, Twitter is adding the Indian payment gateway Paytm as an additional payment provider to Tips. 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. Tap the icon, and you’ll see Paytm and other payment services or platforms that the account has enabled, you can select whichever you prefer. Once you select the service you want to use, you’ll be taken off Twitter to the selected app to send funds. Twitter takes no cut.

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. 

Tips is available in multiple Indian languages including Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Marathi, Tamil. For step-by-step instructions on how to enable your Tips feature and how to send tips, check out our Help Center.

Twitter’s General Tipping policy is designed to keep people safe on the service and it will guide enforcement actions. 

Happy tipping!
