    WhatsApp one of the most widely used chatting and messaging applications. Apart from chatting and sharing images, audios, etc users can also use the app to send money to their contacts via WhatsApp Payments. WhatsApp users can share money with people using WhatsApp Payments app. In order to share money you need a Unified Payment Interface (UPI) to enable bank-to-bank money transfer while using WhatsApp Payments. It can be noted that UPI is a national payment system developed by the NPCI (National Payments Corporation of India), and supports most major banks in India.

    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.
