RuPay credit card holders of several banks can now make UPI transactions using Google Pay. The users can make UPI payments by scanning the merchant’s UPI QR code at any desired location and even do offline transactions. Google Pay is the latest payments platform to enter into a partnership with the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) to allow RuPay credit cards for UPI payments on its platform.
Initially, NPCI allowed users to make UPI payments using their bank accounts only, but now it has enabled the integration of RuPay credit cards with UPI for Google Pay users.
This feature is now accessible to all RuPay credit card holders from prominent banks such as Axis Bank, Indian Bank, Bank of Baroda, Canara Bank, HDFC Bank, Punjab National Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank, and Union Bank of India. This facility can be availed of by customers by linking their credit card to the UPI apps.
The payment facility by RuPay Credit Card on UPI was introduced last year, allowing customers to use credit cards to make payments at local stores by simply scanning them. However, one cannot make peer-to-peer (P2P) transactions using this new service.
RuPay Credit card holders can make online payments by scanning the UPI QR code and using selected payment platforms like UPI, Google Pay, Paytm, PhonePe, PayZapp, and Freecharge.
