You’ll need to go through the following 4 steps before you can take your app live on the Mini App Store: 

  1. Onboard
  2. Develop and Integrate
  3. App Review and QA
  4. Take your App Live!
     

Step 1: Onboard

There are two ways to onboard with us at Paytm Mini Apps :

Note: You can find the documentation required for onboarding with us here.

 

Which onboarding method is best for me?

 

If you’re having an existing enterprise business relationship with Paytm for an online or offline solution, or are already in touch with our Key Account Managers, you may reach out to us directly for an enterprise account management for your Mini App requirement on miniapp.support@paytm.com.
 
Else, you can use the quick and seamless DIY Flow, and start building your Mini App through our Paytm Business Dashboard

 

Methods for Onboarding

Visit the Paytm Business Dashboard to register yourself for a Mini App account. Please refer to this video to understand how to onboard your Mini App using the Do-It-Yourself flow.

Post onboarding you will get the following details:

  • App QR : This will be used to open the development app required for integration
  • Mini App ID: This is the unique App Id for your Mini App. You will need this id for any interactions with the Paytm ecosystem.
  • Auth client ID and client secret: These are required for login flow integration for your Mini App.
  • PG MID and key: These are required for payment flow integration for your Mini App.
Note: PG MID and key are required for collecting payments in the mini apps and will be available after registering as an unlimited merchant. The option to register for an unlimited merchant account is available on Mini Apps details page on the business dashboard.

Just to give you an idea of the process involved :

  1. Our teams will be going through the flow of your website and perform some basic documentation checks as part of the onboarding process.
  2. Once this is approved, a digital agreement will be sent to you for signing, thereby completing your onboarding.
  3. You’ll then be issued a Merchant ID (MID) under which all the transactions happening under your Mini App will be clocked. You can thus access transactions data and analytics by logging in to your Paytm Business Dashboard. This MID is separate from any other MID you may be using on a different Paytm Payment Gateway on your website or app. We’ll also send out other credentials required for you to move on to the next step, and begin Integration!
    • App QR : will be used to open the development app required for integration. This will be sent to your email address along with other steps required for you to configure your App. Once you receive your QR, you can learn more about how to use the Developer Mini App here.
