WhatsApp introduced its UPI payment service in India late last year, which lets users send money to their contacts directly via the messaging platform. Since then, the company appears to be on the quench to add more users to its payments service as it faces a stiff competition against the likes of the other well-established UPI services such as Google Pay, PhonePe and Paytm among others. To tackle the strong competition out there in this segment, WhatsApp has introduced the cashback program that rewards users who make payments via this app with a cashback of Rs 51.

Notably, this cashback offer is not new to the UPI payment services in the country. Already, Google Pay earned its position with this cashback scheme and scratch cards option in the country. Now, it looks like WhatsApp is taking the same path to turn into a successful payment app.

The latest WhatsApp Android beta version has stated showing a banner at the top of the chat window. This banner displays a message reading, “Give cash, get Rs 51 back”.

Once the payment is successful, the cashback will be credited to the user’s account. As of now, there is no word regarding how long this cashback program will last for WhatsApp users. If you want to earn the cashback, then use this offer right away.
