How to create multiple UPI IDs in Google Pay: UPI (Unified Payments Interface) payment is one of India's most popular methods of payment and the usage of UPI as a payment channel has grown exponentially over the last few years. Due to the pandemic, people have majorly switched to contactless payments, giving UPI a further boost. The latest data released by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) also reiterates how UPI has emerged as the single largest retail payment platform in the country in terms of transaction volume. However, issues like busy servers have been a huge pain point among consumers. If you suffer from the same, then check out how to beat this problem with an innovative solution.
Whether it's for online shopping, movie reservations, restaurant ordering, train tickets, or an action as simple as a bank transfer, the majority of consumers in India choose to utilize UPI and digital wallets to make convenient, hassle-free, and speedy payments.
Google Pay has quickly become one of the most popular UPI apps for online payments in the country. It's a user-friendly app that runs smoothly on both Android and iPhone devices. Without paying any fee, one can make payments at local shops, stores, or any retailer that accepts UPI payments using a universal QR code by scanning the QR code quickly and entering the UPI pin.
