You can get the UPI service by verifying your number in any freecharge account. If you do not set the UPI PIN later, you need to do so. This process is very similar to the Paytm offer. Currently, only Android users can avail the UPI service provided in the freecharge. It will be released in a few weeks for iOS.
With the UPI payment feature provided in the app, you can instantly transact with any bank. The transaction is secured with a 4 to 6 digit UPI PIN. The app also verifies the mobile number by sending OTP.
“With UPI services, we have taken another step towards seamless digital transactions,” said Sangram Singh, CEO, Freecharge. The medium of UPI has become increasingly acceptable for payment. We are committed to extending the benefits of this digital payment service to all our customers. “According to data released by the National Payments Corporation of India in February, there have been over 1 crore transactions from UPI so far. This number is steadily rising.
