UPI In Flipkart Bank
Flipkart, one of India’s leading e-commerce companies, introduced its own Unified Payments Interface (UPI) service called PhonePe in 2016. PhonePe is a separate entity but was acquired by Flipkart in 2016 and operates as a subsidiary.
PhonePe is a digital payment platform that allows users to make payments, transfer money, pay bills, and perform various financial transactions using the UPI system. UPI is a real-time payment system in India that enables individuals to link their bank accounts to a mobile application and make secure payments using a Virtual Payment Address (VPA).
