And yes, not to forget the update the Application to avail such facility offered by Whatsapp. And the whole payment process works on the Unified Payments Interface. Here’s how?
Reaching the Payment Option:
Open the top right menu of the application and tapping the settings option, you will find payment option. In that, linking up your bank detail with the same registered mobile number you have with the Whatsapp. This will make your account enable to send and receive money via WhatsApp.
Linking the Bank Detail
The process is as simple as Whatsapp. You just need to tap the add bank account option. Followed by verifying the mobile number linked with the bank and WhatsApp.
Which will eventually, verify via SMS and will show the bank accounts option with the UPI linked banks. If you have more than one account linked to a single bank, you can select the one accordingly. And here you need to add last four digits of the account number followed by credit/ debit card details.
What’s UPI? How to set it?
UPI is the Unified Payment Interface that allows a one-time password to the bank account holders. And here followed by the verification process, your bank will send the OTP and add it in the process of creating a new UPI will allow you to generate a four digit UPI number.
Due to this, your UPI generation process will be completed and you are likely to get the confirmation message about the same. This will show the complete payment details in your WhatsApp account detail page.
Here You Go! Whatsapp Money!
As we are sending the documents, picture and more with the Whatsapp paperclip icon in the chat box. We are now able to send the money from that. In that paperclip icon, you will have the option to send the money which will redirect you to payment options.
And you can successfully send the money in just seconds with Whatsapp. Also, you can write the detail of the money you have sent. Currently, the Whatsapp payment update is available with the backend auto update and need not update it by yourself.
Maybe you are not likely to have the option for now but will soon be going to launched openly. Currently, its limited to some extent as you can have the money transfer options within India only and not the overseas money transfer. Also, the final rollout is not announced by Whatsapp so it is possible some of the users might not have seen or not likely to see the said update.
