Google Play users can now use UPI Autopay as a payment option while making subscription based purchases.
Google Play is used by Android users to download several types of applications they need in their phone. And recently Google has announced that the company is introducing UPI Autopay as a payment option for subscription based purchases on Google Play in India. The National Payment Corporation of India (NPCI) introduced the UPI Autopay under UPI 2.0 to help customers make payments using any UPI application supporting this feature, according to a report by Live Mint.
According to the report, with the help of the UPI Autopay customers will be easily able to set up a subscription. After selecting a subscription plan for purchase, all that the user will have to do is click on the payment method in the cart, select Pay with UPI and then allow the purchase in their supported UPI app.
