Last month, it was discovered that WhatsApp was developing a rebate programme for UPI payments. A firm controlled by TheMeta has begun implementing its Rs. 51 reward offer for WhatsApp beta users in India.
WhatsApp Pay Rs. 51 Cashback in India
When you give money to various contacts, WhatsApp will let you get a cashback, as was first reported by Business Insider India.
There is no minimum requirement and you can claim it five times. In other words, you can effectively send five WhatsApp contacts a total of Rs. 5 to collect Rs. 255 in payback. You receive Rs. 250 thanks to the WhatsApp Pay payback scheme even if those connections don’t send you the original sum back.
The programme is currently only accessible on Android’s WhatsApp beta, which is where the catch lies. However, in the upcoming weeks, we could anticipate the firm expanding the initiative to include all Indian users. We’ll have to wait and watch if this rebate scheme for WhatsApp Pay will enable WhatsApp to accept more UPI payments in the nation.
Additionally, the banner’s wording implies that you must send the money to five WhatsApp Pay contacts rather than using their UPI ID or another popular UPI payment tool. Since we couldn’t find WhatsApp Pay’s Rs. 51 cashback scheme on either of the two WhatsApp beta accounts we checked, the deployment appears to be selective for now.
In related WhatsApp Pay news, tipster WABetaInfo has noted that WhatsApp is collaborating with Novi Payments Company to develop a digital wallet. The change occurs shortly after Novi introduced a stand-alone digital wallet app in Guatemala and the US.
