As we are  coming to terms with the virus pandemic that is COVID-19, the world as we know it is going to change in ways more than one. In the past few weeks our lives have been disrupted in many ways. World economies are plummeting, unemployment is soaring and all the businesses are being affected in one way or another.

Business owners concerned about their future must be asking themselves what they can do to revive their business. While this worldwide pandemic is going to cause a severe negative impact, it also brings along with it a moment of opportunity. The ones best suited to survive and grow in these times would be those who adapt quickly and make the most of this opportunity. 

In a world that could be known as “After-Covid-2019”, we will see technology playing an enhanced role that will structure and reshape business conduct and consumer behavior. This “New Normal” will be defined by terms like “Digital” & “Contactless”. We are bound to witness a new era wherein the use of technology will be key for smooth operations of businesses.
businessPaytm, with over 15 Million payment partners has taken it on themselves to build business solutions that will support merchants in these challenging times. Paytm, which is synonymous to technology and digital solutions has come up with the following business solutions to help its payment partners operate during and post COVID-19:

1. All-in-One QR
This feature helps merchants to send promotions to nearby/potential customers through SMS and notifications on Paytm. During lockdown, it helped shops that fall under the “essential services” category to inform nearby customers through SMS that their shop is open for service. This helped reduce panic amongst customers and give them important information about where to source their essentials from.

Social distancing has been stated as the key to fight the Coronavirus. The government is encouraging shopkeepers to start home delivery in order to manage the flow of customers at the shop. In order to facilitate easier operations for home delivery, Paytm has equipped its payment partners with features such as payment link and business khata. These features help the merchant to note a sale and also accept payments from customers sitting at home through a link.
