In the title compound, [Ag(C7H7O3S)(C13H14N2)]n, the AgI ion is coordinated in a T-shape by two N atoms from two symmetry-related 1,3-bis­(pyridin-4-yl)propane ligands and one O atom from a p-toluene­sulfonate ligand, forming a one-dimensional zigzag chain along [001]. In the crystal, weak C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds and weak Ag⋯Ag inter­actions [3.2628 (5) Å] are observed.
