This seems like an aggressive push for the WhatsApp Pay service ever since its introduction in India. WhatsApp Pay has been around for many months now but has hardly found takers. It seems that WhatsApp is following Google Pay’s way of attracting more users on its platform.

A few years ago, Google Pay relied on the idea of offering cashbacks as a way to attract more users on its service. Google Pay used to reward with scratch cards on every transactions, some of which credited some amount of cashback, while others offered coupons and rewards of other nature. PhonePe also does similar cashback offers to draw more users to its platform.
