Google Pay and the National Payments Corporation of India announced on Tuesday that users would be able to make UPI payments using RuPay credit cards, capitalising on the growing popularity of the Unified Payments Interface.
Users can now conveniently pay at any online and offline retailers that accept RuPay credit cards by linking their RuPay credit cards to Google Pay.
Holders of RuPay credit cards from Axis Bank, Bank of Baroda, Canara Bank, HDFC bank, Indian Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank, Punjab National Bank, and Union Bank of India can now take advantage of this service.
Soon, other banks will do the same.
Users must link the RuPay credit card to Google Pay in order to activate. Users can select the bank that issued their RuPay credit card by tapping on the “RuPay credit card on UPI” option on their profile.
After that, users must set a special UPI PIN by keying in their bank’s OTP, followed by the last six digits of their card number and expiration.
