Now users can have one more payment service. WhatsApp has finally launched its payment feature in India. It’s being slowly rolled out to people across the country, so if the feature hasn’t shown up for you yet, do not worry as it should show up soon. Users can now make digital payments using WhatsApp. WhatsApp also lets you send money to those who use other UPI apps
WhatsApp Payments has been designed in partnership with the National Payments Corporation of India or NPCI, and it is based on the Unified Payments Interface or UPI. To get started you need to be on the latest version of WhatsApp for Android or iOS. Your WhatsApp number should be the same number that’s linked to your bank account too.
WhatsApp Pay enables peer to peer digital payment via the messaging platform. It also lets you send money to WhatsApp contacts as well as people who are not registered with WhatsApp Pay
