WhatsApp has launched person-to-person UPI Payments in India

11 February 2018

India is WhatsApp's largest market with over 200 million users active daily users. The official launch of the feature is likely to boost digital payments in India, considering WhatsApp's popularity, but will also intensify competition for digital wallets. The feature is now in beta, according to sources familiar with the company's plans, but hasn't been publicly announced because it's not widely available at this time.

It should be pointed out that not all users will see the Payments option in their WhatsApp.

Anyone with the UPI feature enabled can distribute it to others. The messaging platform will integrate its peer-to-peer UPI or Unified Payments Interface based digital payments platform with leading banks, including State Bank of India, ICICI Bank, HDFC Bank, and Axis Bank.

WhatsApp was so far conducting beta-testing for the Payments feature on the Android version of the app. Choose the bank with which you have an account and where UPI is activated.

Once the mobile number has been verified, the list of banks supported will appear. Users have been complaining about problems with linking their bank accounts to UPI, which is to be expected considering the beta status of the feature. The users will then need to enter the last six digits of their debit card number along with the expiry details to create a Virtual Payee Address (VPA).
