UPI, which was launched in 2016, has become the default payment mode for many. However, as it requires app installation, it can only be used with smartphones. Nokia is now aiming to bridge this digital gap with its newest feature phones, making UPI available to everyone.
Nokia’s new feature phones – Nokia 105 and Nokia 106 4G – come with UPI built-in allowing users to make secure and convenient transactions. The UPI on the two phones are enabled by NPCI’s instant payment system, UPI 123PAY, which allows users to make payments through their phones.
UPI 123PAY offers four options for transactions – calling an IVR number, using the app on feature phones, making payments through missed calls, and proximity sound-based payments. Built by Gupshup, the app claims to leverage SMS messaging, instead of data plan, to deliver payment facility to feature phone users.
