Thanks for suggesting UPI as a payment method. We’re looking into UPI, and would like to know your thoughts on how you’d like Splitwise to support UPI:
- Integrate with a UPI app like BHIM or PhonePe
- Integrate with your banking app
- Let you send money to a virtual address, phone #, or IFSC from within Splitwise
- Something else?

It’s better to let us send money to a virtual address from within Splitwise.
That way we won’t be restricted to use any specific UPI app. Payment request will come to whatever app we are using to access UPI. You can provide an option to add our UPI address to Splitwise profile. This will make payment significantly faster as we won’t have to type receiver’s UPI address everytime we want to send money. Some people keep UPI addresses very long and it is a headache to type it correctly (considering it is case sensitive and can have any combination of numbers)
We’re now integrated with Paytm on Android! Check out our blog post about it here: https://blog.splitwise.com/2017/05/23/announcing-a-splitwise-paytm-integration-for-android/tejas.niphadkar commented
Right now adding UPI support will make more sense than adding paytm. Please work towards adding BHIM UPI payments in India.
