Bajaj Pay UPI payment

UPI, or Unified Payments Interface, is a payment system developed by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) that lets users transfer money between bank accounts using a smartphone. UPI allows instant, secure, and convenient payments, and does not require users to enter their bank account information or other sensitive information when making a payment. Instead, users can simply enter a unique ID, or ‘virtual payment address’, to complete the transaction. To authenticate UPI transactions, users must use a UPI PIN – a four or six-digit code, which the user can set up through their UPI-enabled app.

If you want to track the status of a UPI transaction, you can do so using the UPI reference number. A UPI reference number, also known as a transaction ID, is a unique identification number assigned to each UPI transaction. The reference number is generated by the UPI system and is used to track the transaction status. UPI payment has become a popular payment method in India and is supported by many banks and financial institutions.

Bajaj Pay UPI is a digital payment platform that allows users to make secure and convenient payments using their smartphones. Bajaj Pay UPI supports a range of payment methods, including bank transfers, mobile wallet payments, and credit and debit card payments. The app also allows users to securely store money and make payments for various services, including utility bills, mobile phone bills, and online purchases. Bajaj Pay also offers a range of financial services, such as personal loans and insurance products. It is available as a mobile app for Android and iOS devices.

What is UPI payment method

The Unified Payments Interface (UPI) is a mobile payment system developed by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) that allows users to transfer funds from one bank account to another instantly. It is a popular payment method in India that facilitates inter-bank peer-to-peer (P2P) and person-to-merchant (P2M) transactions.

UPI is a more advanced version of the old-school payment methods of IMPS and NEFT, which allows account holders to transfer a certain amount from one bank account to another without additional charges. To transact through UPI, every individual needs to set up a UPI account and a UPI PIN which is the password for confirming the transaction. The UPI payment method has turned out to be useful for many because of the following reasons:

  • UPI payments are very fast and typically payment can be completed within seconds.
  • Almost every bank allows UPI transactions through mobile applications.
  • Payments are completely safe. To complete a payment, the user needs to have the SIM card of his mobile number present in his phone and also needs to enter the secret MPIN each time.
  • UPI Payment facility allows individuals to request money from some other individual, which is not an option with other payment methods like IMPS and NEFT.
  • Payments can be made 24×72.
  • It is completely free.

Advantages of UPI for Merchants

  • Simplified fund collection: Streamlines the process of collecting funds, making transactions hassle-free.
  • Secure customer data storage: Minimises risk by eliminating the need to store customers' virtual addresses, ensuring data security.
  • Ideal for e-commerce and mobile commerce transactions: Tailored to suit the requirements of electronic and mobile commerce transactions.
  • Cardless transactions for tap customers: Convenient for tap customers who can make transactions without the need for credit or debit cards.
  • In-app payments (IAP): Facilitates seamless in-app payments, enhancing the overall user experience.
  • Effortless resolution of cash-on-delivery hassles: Resolves the challenges associated with cash-on-delivery, providing a smoother payment alternative.

What is a UPI limit

As per the NPCI, the daily limit for UPI transactions is capped at Rs. 1 lakh, with a higher maximum limit of Rs. 5 lakh for merchants and bill payments. The specific daily UPI transfer limit can vary between Rs. 25,000 and Rs. 1 lakh based on the bank. Additionally, certain banks have chosen to implement weekly or monthly caps on UPI transfers instead of daily limits.
