PhonePe Wallet : Installation, Features and Limitations

A Flipkart Group Company has come up with this mobile payment application, PhonePe wallet, which works over UPI (Unified Payments Interface) platform and is powered by YES Bank. UPI platform is developed by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) to make mobile payments more general and platform or bank independent. In this app, one can link his/her bank account(s) over UPI and can make bank to bank transactions instantly by just using a mobile number. Here, for identity authentication reason, a unique VPA (Virtual Payment Address) is provided to every individual who uses the app. PhonePe wallet also provides you a digital mobile wallet facility to get refunds and cashbacks from their merchant partners.
