Capital One Aspire Travel World Elite Mastercard treats it as a regular purchase.

Perhaps OP can add all of these Mastercards to the initial posting so people can see which cards work and which treat it as a cash advance.

So once you put something on your Mastercard using this service, and assuming it all went smoothly -- you'll have 2% from your card, and an additional 2% from paytm.

At this point, can I pay my Mastercard through paytm using debit / bank account, and receive an additional 2% for paying the Mastercard bill?

Can I use Costco CapitalOne Platinum Mastercard ?
Other cards which I have are American Express, TD Cash Back VISA, CIBC Dividend VISA Platinum, read somewhere that AE and visa cannot be used with paytm
Can I combine that with Koodo bill paid by Paytm using CapitalOne Mastercard and refer bonus?

So long as it's a mastercard there is no fee so yes koodo + cap1 mastercard and refer bonus would work. you would get 2 x $10.

Visa/Amex are charged a fee in fact visa counts as cash advance.

Oh no. I just paid my Markham property tax installment this morning with my Walmart MC. I even confirmed with PayTM that it wouldn't be charged as a cash advance too. It hasn't posted so will update once it does.
Didn't want to sweat it out any longer so called Walmart Rewards Mastercard who confirmed my payment this morning went through as a purchase and not as cash advance.
Koodo $40 6GB
PM $40 4.5GB

once again from what i have been reading people who have been seeing cash advance for credit card payments has been for Property Taxes only so far (Unless i have missed someone who said they made a small bill payment and it went as a cash advance).

Keep getting "Uh Oh! There was a problem" every time I try to add my credit card. I've made sure all the info is correct. Anyone else?

To be safe maybe it's better to pay the MasterCard with the same amount as the bill payment plus a few extra dollars in case it goes through as a cash advance in order to reduce the possible damage.

This assume you have no other charges on the MasterCard at the time.

Here’s the thing, when it’s processed, the processing is done at Mastercards end, individual cards shouldn’t treat different transactions in different ways

How would a cash advance even show up. Don't you have to go to an ATM for one to show up?

Yes you can use that, you can also use Amex at a 2% convnenience fee.

Yes you can combine with other promos they have going such as the Koodo one

I also paid my Markham property tax via Paytm on Jan 19 (using PCF mastercard). The transaction was not shown on my property tax account until today. I then logged onto my PCF account, and couldn't see the transaction. So I called the customer service, and the rep was able to see that transaction (PAYTM-MARKH). He confirmed that the transaction type was "Purchase", so no cash advance fees/interest was charged. Phew... what a relief!

With all these dramas, I think I'm going to stop using Paytm for now until everything is cleared (just to be safe).
