How to Pay on Online Apps in India?
As mentioned above, there are several online payment methods for apps through which you can make transactions. We will explain how to pay using every particular payment now.
Online Payment using E-wallets
To get started with e-wallets, you first have to download one. Some of the popular e-wallets in India are Paytm, Google Pay (GPay), PhonePe, and MobiKwik. After you have downloaded the app, follow these instructions.
- Enter your banking details or mobile number to connect to your bank account in the app.
- Then create a UPI ID.
- E-wallets allow you to send money using the receiver’s Phone Number, UPI code, Bank Account details or QR scan.
- If you pick any of the first three options (Phone Number, UPI code, Bank Account number), you have to enter your respective details. Alternatively, you can scan the QR code to get the receiver’s banking details.
- Then enter the amount you wish to pay.
- Finally, mention the UPI ID and confirm the transaction.
However, before making any transaction, remember to complete your KYC (Know Your Customer) verification with the particular app. You can also set a biometric password (like fingerprint or face recognition) to log in to your e-wallet. This means you don’t need to mention your password every time you try to log in.
