    Steps to Make UPI Payments without Internet

There have been times when you are in the middle of a particular online UPI transaction and it failed. This is primarily because of an unstable internet connection. However, the good thing is, you can also try to make UPI payments without even using the internet. There is no UPI app that you require to do this either. Yes, you heard that right! This can completely be done and that too fairly quickly, in just a few easy steps.

UPI Payments can be carried out via a number of different service providers like Google Pay, PhonePe, PayTM, Amazon Pay, Airtel Payments App and so much more. However, all of these UPI payments require your internet connection to make a successful transaction. Now, there is a quick workaround this particular thing as you can make UPI payments even without the internet.

To recall, back in November of 2012, the National Payments Corporation of India introduced the *99# service in India. This particular feature basically acts as an emergency backup plan in case a UPI app server fails. Another thing to note here is that this feature is widely used in feature phones as such devices do not support UPI applications. Here’s how you can make UPI payments without using the internet for any UPI app!

Steps to Make UPI Payments without Internet

Step 4: Then, tap on 1 which is the option number to send money. Now, you can use either your UPI ID, bank account number and IFSC code or phone number to make a transaction. Just tap on the desired method of transaction.

Step 4: Here, if you tap on the UPI option, you will be required to type in the recipient’s UPI ID. Similarly, if you choose the bank account option, you will be required to enter the recipient’s account number and IFSC code. Further, if you go for the phone number option, you will be required to type in the receiver’s phone number.

Step 5: Then, all you have to do is enter the amount of money you want to send over, similar to any digital UPI app.

Step 6: Finally, just enter your UPI PIN number. Then, tap on send and the transaction is complete. Moreover, you will also be asked to save the recipient in case of future transactions. Besides, it costs only Rs. 0.50 to make the payment.
