If at that time someone told us that you can simply transfer money into someone’s account with just their phone number, or making payments straight to their bank accounts, we would think that they have gone nuts. Right? Tada! Welcome to the real revolution in the cashless economy.

Let us walk you step by step on this 5 second journey that shows the safest, coolest and fastest way to share money with your friends without even asking for their bank details! (and most importantly, you can send money to them even if they are not on UPI)

  • Enter the recipient's phone number.

  • Enter the amount you want to send
