In February Whatsapp had launched its payment service in India for selected android smartphones as well as iPhones. It later made additions like ‘Send to UPI ID’ feature to help users directly make payments to unique UPI ID’s without going through any conversation threads. This feature lacked the QR code payments feature which is present in opponent apps like Paytm.
