Flipkart launches its own UPI handle for Android users

Flipkart, in collaboration with Axis Bank, has launched a new UPI handle called “@fkaxis”. It offers users a convenient way to make payments, transfer funds, and earn rewards like Supercoins.

Flipkart launched its own UPI handle @fkaxis in collaboration with Axis Bank on Sunday. They also announced a new scheme under the tagline ‘India’s Most Rewarding UPI’. Currently available for Android smartphone users via the Flipkart app, users can register for a new UPI ID, which can be used for fund transfers and in-app payments.

Flipkart UPI offers convenient and zero-cost solutions along with a smooth onboarding process. Additionally, Flipkart offers one-click and quick payments for mobile recharge and bill payment within the app. Flipkart also provides the Flipkart Axis Bank Credit Card.

Dheeraj Aneja, Senior Vice President – Fintech and Payments Group at Flipkart, stated, “At Flipkart, we are committed to delivering the best-in-class commerce experience to customers by offering safe and convenient payment options along with a wide array of rewards and benefits such as Supercoins, Brand Vouchers, and others. Furthermore, Flipkart UPI underscores our dedication to shaping a digitally-empowered society and reaffirms our role as a leading catalyst in India’s digital evolution.”

Flipkart UPI can also be used to make payments outside the Flipkart marketplace by scanning QR codes. Since Flipkart separated from PhonePe in 2022, it has been working on introducing its own dedicated UPI.

Users with any bank account can create a new UPI ID on Flipkart for free of cost. However, as mentioned earlier, the feature is currently limited to Android smartphones, and the same is expected to be rolled out to iPhone users in the coming days.
