UPI apps are one of the easiest ways to send or receive money. Currently, there are multiple platforms offering the users UPI services like online UPI payments, money transfer, and more. However, you need to opt for a trusted platform to conduct UPI payments.
The Airtel Thanks app is one of the trusted platforms that you can explore to create a UPI ID and use it for online payments, recharges, money transfer, and more.
Steps to create an Airtel UPI ID
To create a UPI handle on the Airtel Thanks app, follow these steps:
- Download and install the Airtel Thanks app from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store if you haven’t already.
- Open the Airtel Thanks app and log in using your Airtel mobile number or registered email ID.
- Once logged in, you will see the app’s home screen with various options and services. Look for the “Banking” or “Payments” section. It is usually located at the bottom of the screen.
- Tap on the “Banking” or “Payments” section. This will take you to the banking and payments page within the Airtel Thanks app.
- On the banking and payments page, you may see different options related to banking services. Look for the “UPI” or “Create UPI ID” option. Tap on it to proceed.
- If you haven’t linked your bank account with the Airtel Thanks app, you will be prompted to do so. Follow the on-screen instructions to link your bank account to the app. This typically involves verifying your mobile number linked to the bank account and providing the necessary details.
- Once your bank account is linked, you will be able to create a UPI handle. Enter your desired UPI handle or ID in the provided field. Keep in mind that the UPI handle should be unique and adhere to the guidelines set by the UPI system (e.g., it may require a minimum number of characters or specific characters).
- After entering the UPI handle, the app will check its availability. If the handle is available, you will be able to proceed. If it is already taken, you will need to choose a different UPI handle.
- Once you have chosen an available UPI handle, confirm your selection. The Airtel Thanks app will process the request and create your UPI handle.
After the UPI handle is successfully created, you can start using it for various UPI transactions, such as sending or receiving money, making bill payments, or linking it to other payment apps. You can also use the UPI to do your prepaid recharges or utility bill payments.
Payments made using Airtel UPI can get you multiple cash backs, Airtel free data coupon, discounts, and more!
That’s it! You have now created a UPI handle on the Airtel Thanks app. Make sure to keep your UPI credentials secure and avoid sharing them with anyone to protect your financial information.
