Wednesday 18 August 2021 10:15 CET | News

Whatsapp has launched backgrounds to payments for its users, in collaboration with the National Payments Corporation of India.

WhatsApp users in India will be able to add payments backgrounds while sending money through WhatsApp. Designed in partnership with the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), on the Unified Payment Interface (UPI), the new feature on WhatsApp is a payment system that enables transactions with over 227 banks.

WhatsApp has created this thematic range of expressions to complement sending payments on birthdays, holidays, or for gifts and travel. The core idea of this feature update is to create a more personalised experience for the sender as well as the receiver by adding an element of expression when friends and family exchange money.
