"Consumers will be able to shop from 1.4 lakh sellers for millions of products across categories like fashion, electronics, consumer durables and home furnishings among others at their convenience," says Paytm in a press note.

The Bazaar, the hugely popular unstructured shopping channel on Paytm, will also be featured on the new app. It will aim at providing consumers the widest domestic and international assortment. 

With over 17 fulfillment centres across India, Paytm Mall is geared towards offering consumers the most trusted and efficient online shopping experience. The platform would also offer sellers the widest reach through its vast network of over 40 courier partners. The Paytm Mall will also launch an ungraded version of the Paytm Seller app.
