Better, faster, slicker: Send money to India with UPI

Amanda Choy

Use Unified Payments Interface (UPI) to send money to India. Easier for you, and safer for your family and friends.

Good news! You can now use UPI to send money to India. Forget fumbling around with long bank details. All you need is the recipient’s UPI ID, which is a combo of their name and bank, and you’re all set.

You’ll still get all the good stuff by sending with UPI — like fairer rates — but it’s just that bit faster.

To send money to India using UPI:

  1. Log in to your Wise account
  2. Select Send and enter your amount
  3. Set INR as the recipient currency
  4. Choose to add a new recipient, and tap UPI
  5. Add your friend or family member with their UPI ID
  6. Check your details and tap to send. Ta da!
