In Google Pay, you can transfer and receive money using UPI ID, mobile number, Bank account details, and QR code. Now you can also create your mobile number as a UPI number in Google Pay and receive or transfer money through any UPI application.
What is Google Pay UPI Number?
You can set up your Google Pay registered mobile number as your UPI number and receive or transfer money through any UPI application. Normally when you receive or transfer money using a mobile number, both (sender & receiver) should use the same UPI application but when you make your mobile number a UPI number, both (sender and receiver) can use different UPI applications.
Another benefit is that you don’t need to share complicated UPI ID or bank details, just share your mobile number (which is your UPI number) and receive or transfer money easily.
