We can say clearly that the WhatsApp application is one of the most popular mobile messaging apps in the world. There are more than 200 million users who use the WhatsApp application and that is why the developers of this application are trying to focus their attention in this country.
According to new reports, WhatsApp will launch a digital payment service in India some time in the coming months. This news was reported by local media mentioning a WhatsApp spokesman as the company will contribute more to the vision of India’s digital commerce.
Unfortunately, it does not know what exactly WhatsApp will provide users, but the move is not something unexpected, as we all know that the mobile market in India is growing at a rapid pace.
We remind you that Facebook bought WhatsApp for $ 22 billion back in 2014 and since then the demand has continued to grow in popularity and, according to the latest reports, now has about 1.2 billion active users per month. However, the company must find a way to make application revenue after the annual subscription fee $ 0.99 back is removed in 2016.
One can clearly say that WhatsApp to keep popular as Facebook in India, and the email application has been “modified” in this country for a number of other functions that just a way to get in touch with your friends and your family. We remind you that WhatsApp is used in India to sell products such as medicines, baby clothes, art and craft supplies
In accordance with the Reserve Bank of India, in January 2016 digital payment services in India had over 262 million transactions worth about $ 1.3 billion. The government has responded quickly and it also has its own digital payment framework for digital payments and called the “unified payment service”, which allows banks and mobile apps to exchange money with ease.
In other words, WhatsApp has the right time to join chosen in these services in India, and we’re pretty sure there’s a lot to gain from this aura.
