Xoom, PayPal’s international money transfer service, declared openly on Monday its integration with NPIL’s/NPCI’s Unified Payments Interface (UPI), a real-time payment network enabling inter-bank deals in India. Xoom broadcasted that Non-Residential Indians (NRIs) and Persons of Indian Origin (PIOs) living in the U.S., Canada, and Europe may forthwith remit money to their family and friends in India.

“This new service offers more choice, convenience to Xoom customers and enables Indian diaspora to easily transfer money back home–securely and seamlessly. UPI is a payment mechanism which allows money transfers without having to source or share bank account details. Instead of bank account numbers and IFSC codes, the virtual payment address (VPA) is used to pay when customers send money via UPI. Another benefit of UPI is that one UPI ID works for many bank accounts; recipients of money transfers can link multiple bank accounts to receive payments and even set their default bank account for transactions.”

While disseminating more elements about the service, Julian King, Vice President and General Manager of Xoom, stated:

“Xoom is a pioneer in creating fast, innovative and secure digital money transfers. Real-time payments via UPI in India have been a critical and essential payment tool during the pandemic and emerged as one of the most popular payments method in the country. India is an important market for us. We are delighted that Indian diaspora across many markets can now use UPI to send remittances back their loved ones back home with Xoom.”

Xoom put in its customers might utilise UPI payments to remit money to 66 banks across India, encompassing prime banks like State Bank of India, ICICI Bank, Punjab National Bank, Andhra, Bank of Baroda, Bank of India, Indian Bank, Axis Bank, Canara Bank, Yes Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank and Federal Bank.
