You can receive money by sharing your QR code on Google Pay (Gpay). This QR code is linked to your bank account so the sender can scan the QR code and make payment. On Google Pay, you can generate separate QR codes for each linked bank accounts.
Google Pay now offers a personalized QR code feature that allows you to generate custom codes for specific amounts. You can create multiple customized codes for different amounts and share them with the sender to receive payments.
Google Pay Personalised QR Code explained
We would like to provide an example to help you understand Google Pay’s personalized QR code and its functions.
- Let’s say you have created a ₹1000 personalized QR code on Google Pay
- You can now share this code with the sender.
- Once the sender scans the QR code with any UPI application, the amount of ₹1000 will automatically be reflected (the sender cannot enter or change the amount)
- Finally, the sender will pay you the full amount of ₹1000.
Similarly, on Google Pay, you can create multiple QR codes for different amounts and save them on your phone. When you need to receive a specific amount, simply share the personalized QR code and receive payment.
