  • Flipkart enters the UPI space, enabling users to create UPI handles for seamless transactions within and outside its platform.

  • Partnership with Axis Bank introduces the '@fkaxis' UPI handle and Super.Money fintech platform, broadening Flipkart's financial services.

  • Flipkart's UPI initiative aims to reduce dependency on third-party payment apps, offering a one-stop-shop experience and enhancing user convenience.

In a significant move, Flipkart, the e-commerce giant under Walmart's umbrella, has ventured into the Unified Payments Interface (UPI) space. This strategic step enables Flipkart's vast user base, comprising over 500 million registered users and 1.4 million sellers, to create their own UPI handles for transactions within and outside the platform. By integrating UPI directly into its app, Flipkart aims to streamline payments, offering a seamless experience for purchasing goods, paying bills, and making peer-to-peer transactions.

Partnering with Axis Bank, Flipkart has introduced the '@fkaxis' UPI handle, along with a new fintech platform called Super.Money. This collaboration expands Flipkart's financial services, encompassing lending, insurance, and more. The move signifies a departure from dependency on third-party payment apps like Google Pay and Paytm. Instead, Flipkart aims to keep users within its ecosystem by offering an in-house payment solution, thereby enhancing user convenience and eliminating the need to switch apps for transactions.
