WhatsApp continues to push updates to its Android app. The Facebook-owned company is introducing cashback for payments made on the instant messaging platform. Currently, the function is in beta testing only in India, a country where WhatsApp Pay has been available for some time (the other is Brazil, but there are hopes that the service will soon be available to other markets). The affected version is 220.127.116.11.
Thus, after introducing the shortcut button for payments, WhatsApp returns to the same theme and implements the function that allows you to receive a cashback after just 48 hours. The intent is clear: to promote the internal payment platform. It is as always WABetaInfo to have discovered the news, then specifying how it is not yet possible to know if this “prize” will be made available only for the first payment made via WhatsApp Pay or if it will work for all transactions.
The service is in testing in India and is valid only for UPI (Unified Payments Interface) payments, a payment system in the country to facilitate interbank transactions. The extent of the cashback to Brazil will depend on how the instrument is valued in the Asian subcontinent. Who knows that there will soon be news for other countries as well.
