How to Setup Whatsapp Beta Payments:
To start setting up of WhatsApp payments you need your bank account details in order to link your UPI to WhatsApp. The UPI framework is going to come in handy and enable you to use your registered WhatsApp number for the setup process. Here is the full process of adding your bank to WhatsApp:-
- Open WhatsApp, tap on the three dots at the top right corner and navigate to the Settings > Payments window.
- Tapping on the payment option will take you to a new window, where you’ll first need to verify your phone number to begin the UPI setup process. Your registered phone number on WhatsApp should be the same as the one used to register for UPI.
- Once your number is verified, you will be shown a long list of banks. Here, you can go ahead and select the bank and account that you want to link with WhatsApp.
- Though it may take some time to process, you’ll see a ‘setup complete’ message on your screen to demarcate that your bank account has been linked and you can now make or receive payments in a conversation itself. You can check out the process in this YouTube video posted today:
