Whatsapp Digital Payment in India

WhatsApp has recently started testing the digital payments feature. Now a limited number of users in India can try its built-in payments feature. Based on the screenshots shared by UI designer Nagender Rao Savanth‏, testers will have to verify their phone number via SMS to be able to use the government-backed Unified Payments Interface within the app. They can then choose among the pretty large list of banks available, including the State Bank of India, HDFC Bank, and ICICI Bank, and others.

WhatsApp’s payments feature will debut in the country, and it wasn’t hard to believe even without a confirmation from Facebook. Today India has the largest number of WhatsApp users, which is about 200 million people every dayFacebook and WhatsApp will definitely announce the feature when it goes live for everyone. When it does, it’ll be competing against other digital wallets in the country, such as Google Tez, which allows people to make payments without having to share their info.
