The digital payment method is the most convenient way of transaction these days, be it local shopping such as vegetables or buying some electronics. After the pandemic, many shifted to online mode; the most trusted and handy was the Unified Payments Interface (UPI). Are you aware through WhatsApp using UPI, you can transfer money to any of your friends or family? Now, you can seamlessly make UPI-based payments in one place while chatting with your friends. Here are a few steps to follow to do so,  

A) You can link your bank account. Add the active bank account that supports UPI. Your active phone number is also associated with your bank and your WhatsApp. And there you, you can now easily do the money transactions. 

1) Open a conversation with the person you want to send money to, then tap the Payments icon. 

2) Type the amount you want to send > tap next > get started

3) Accept our Payments Terms and Privacy Policy, and continue

4) Now, from the bank list, click on your bank
