    Do you use WhatsApp Payments to send or receive money? If not, do know that there are several payment applications which you can use to do financial transactions like Google Pay, Paytm, PhonePe, among others. And WhatsApp is on the list with its Payments feature. If you also want to try out this WhatsApp feature, it should be noted that you need to access the Unified Payment Interface (UPI) in order to enable bank-to-bank money transfer while using WhatsApp Payments.

    To make transactions so much easier to start, WhatsApp uses the phone number associated with your account to identify your bank account information. You also need to know that your UPI PIN is a 4 or 6 digit number which you are required to enter before making each payment. Every payment you make is protected by your personal UPI PIN and should not be shared with anyone else. If you already have a UPI PIN for your bank account, you will not be required to create a new UPI PIN in WhatsApp.

    It is also important to check your account balance after you make payments. But do you know that you can check your account balance via WhatsApp? Check the steps below to do so.
