WhatsApp has started rolling out cashback on its UPI-based payments service for Android beta version 188.8.131.52. WhatsApp keeps on attracting users’ attention after releasing its in-app payment option. Under this cashback program, users will get a cashback of Rs 51 for paying through WhatsApp. The app displays a banner on top of the chat with a message “Give cash, get ₹51 back.”.
Although, the cashback offer is only available for beta users on Android. But it is expected to be widely available for all users in India. The good thing is that no minimum amount has been kept under this offer. That is, by sending Rs 1 to anyone, you can still get a cashback of Rs 51. You can get maximum of Rs 255 cash back if you make payment to five different contacts.
Facebook-owned instant messaging app WhatsApp rolled out its first phase of unified payment interface to 20 million users in India after approval from NPCI in 2020. Paytm, PhonePe, and Google Pay are considered popular UPI-based money transfer platforms in India. Now WhatsApp is also trying to lure users through its cashback offers.
Additionally, WhatsApp has also introduced background cards like Google Pay for a personalized experience. The feature will also be available only for Android beta users. It also added a payment shortcut button right on the chat bar of the app.
