Unicommerce eSolutions Pvt. Ltd, the technology solutions arm of online retailer Snapdeal, which had been engaged in a legal battle with Paytm since last April over alleged data misuse stated that Paytm has withdrawn the case against it.
To recall the case, in April 2016, Paytm had filed a case against Unicommerce in Delhi High Court for accessing confidential business data on its (Paytm’s) ecommerce platform via the sellers it had partnered with. Unicommerce is used by many sellers on Paytm’s platform for order management and inventory across multiple marketplaces and carts. Apart from this, Paytm had also alleged that Unicommerce was using Paytm’s logo and name without any authorisation.
As per a VC Circle report, Unicommerce now claims that Paytm has withdrawn the case against it stating, “The withdrawal follows Paytm’s inability to provide any proof in support of the allegations.”
However, a Paytm spokesperson told the media outlet, “Paytm is no more in the business of ecommerce and that is why it has withdrawn the case. That said, Paytm Mall will review the next step and will take appropriate action accordingly.”
An email sent to Paytm awaited response at the time of publication.

Unicommerce also said that, in April 2016, the Delhi High Court, instead of granting the interim relief sought by Paytm, had agreed with the facts presented by it, which established that the seller data was accessed with the consent of the sellers.
