Unified Payments Interface (UPI), one of the most widely used forms of transaction, has seen a rise in popularity. Cheq, in collaboration with Transcorp, has introduced the first UPI-enabled payments wallet that is available to international visitors in an effort to meet their demands. Tourists from all G20 nations are now able to go cashless and take advantage of UPI transactions due to this innovative approach. Here is a step-by-step tutorial on how to activate yourself on UPI if you happen to be a foreign individual planning a trip.

accounts and transfer money because it supports UPI-based payments

It is essential to create a special UPI Personal Identification Number (PIN) in order to safeguard your UPI transactions. For approving transactions from the UPI-enabled payment wallet, this PIN serves as a password. Pick a secure PIN that is simple for you to access but challenging for others to
interpret. Useless mixtures like birthdates or consecutive numerals should
be avoided
