Digital payment platform PhonePe which depended on Yes bank for its transactions took a serious hit after the latter was taken under moratorium by the Reserve Bank of India on March 6. However, soon after the news broke out, its rival, Paytm took the opportunity to take a dig at PhonePe and claimed that it can ‘seamlessly scale manifold’ to handle PhonePe’s business.
But PhonePe wasn’t impressed by Paytm’s claim and gave a fitting reply to the latter asserting that it cannot desert its long term partners when they are down.
Dear @PaytmBank— PhonePe (@PhonePe_) March 6, 2020
Inviting you to consider that if your #UPI platform was so 'seamlessly scalable', we'd have called you ourselves.
No point getting back up faster, if we have to desert our long term partners when they're down. Form is temporary, class is permanent.
Later, Paytm clarified that it was just trying to help and that it cared for all digital payments users. The post also drew of hilarious comments from netizens who asked both of them to ‘get a room.’ Many also asked GooglePay to join the banter.
