What is the recharge partner program

The program will enable any Paytm customers (following a registration) to start selling Vodafone and Idea recharges on the Paytm app, the company said in a statement. They can start selling mobile recharges by downloading and registering on the Paytm app. Vodafone Idea will also give an assured cashback to merchant partners for multiple recharges.

Individuals and small businesses, such as pharmacists, milk booth operators, newspaper vendors, and individuals would be able to earn up to ₹5,000 every month under the program.

“We believe that this partnership with Paytm will help a large number of our prepaid customers who are digitally unengaged to remain connected without having to step out to recharge. This partnership will enable digitally connected individuals and small businesses to sell recharges and earn a livelihood,” Avneesh Khosla, Marketing Director, Vodafone Idea said.

Joining hands with Paytm will definitely help the operator as Paytm is serving more than 350 million users in the country, and it is known for paying bills and mobile recharging facilities. The announcement comes after Paytm revamped its application so that its users can use the app carefully for paying their bills and recharging their mobile numbers. This means that Vodafone Idea is looking at new ways to increase its revenue during the lockdown and to cater to the needs of mass audiences.

People can recharge other Jio numbers by becoming partners of Jio through this app. In return, the company will give a fixed amount of commission to those people.
