How to use WhatsApp Pay in India?

WhatsApp finally announces the rollout of its monetary transaction service WhatsApp Pay in India. As per the authority, sending money through WhatsApp will be as easy as sending messages to any person in contact. To make this feature available in India, the Facebook backed messenger company closely worked with the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) and uses the most popular (in India) Unified Payment Interface (UPI).

Alongside, WhatsApp also joined hands with India’s five leading banking service providers – the State Bank of India, ICICI Bank, HDFC Bank, Axis Bank, and Jio Payments Bank. Like the messages, all the payments will also be secured and private. In fact, a personal UPI Pin also will be there to put before each transaction.
