The country is treading down a cashless path, and advancing towards a cashless economy, at a much faster pace following the government’s move of demonetization. Today, more and more merchants are accepting cashless alternatives like Paytm. Even small-time vendors who don’t have POS machines are accepting Paytm money instead of cash.
In today’s blog, we want to tell you how to use Happay cards to load money into your Paytm wallet and use this money for making payments on Ola, Uber and all other merchants who accept Paytm.
HOW TO LOAD YOUR PAYTM WALLET WITH HAPPAY CARDS
On the payment page,
1. Choose ‘credit card’ as the mode of payment
2. Enter the details of your Happay card
3. Enter the OTP sent to your mobile number and make the payment
HOW TO REPORT EXPENSES MADE VIA PAYTM
Money added to your Paytm wallet is recorded as a wallet recharge on Happay. This transaction, by itself, doesn’t show how the wallet money was used. Maybe the entire amount might not have be used for a single expense but multiple expenses. Or perhaps it was used for expenses made in different expense cycles – part of the money was used in February and the rest in March.
Let’s take the first case: Suppose you loaded Rs.800 into your Paytm wallet using your Happay card. You spent Rs.350 for your cab ride on Uber and Rs. 450 for stationary. You will have to create two separate cash entries – one for Uber and one for stationary.
To create cash expenses:
1. Login to your Happay dashboard and click ‘+ Add Expense’.
2. Enter the details of your expense, attach the corresponding bill/screenshot of the purchase on Paytm, and submit.
