Paytm is paying a price for its sudden stardom
An interesting summary (ironically, the piece itself lacks one!) of the troubles of an Indian Startup that saw a massive Uptick in it’s user base last month. I doubt it’d have been any different for any other online service, if a government decision of this scale would have impacted (positively) their user base.
My experience with PayTM has been less than ideal. Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve seen multiple failed transactions and “something went wrong” messages. PayTM itself has been on a snail’s ride. PayTM’s servers just don’t seem ready to handle the traffic that they’ve been receiving.
