PhonePe’s partnership with Axis Bank will give its users an option to create and use multiple UPI IDs with an Axis Bank ID. Until now, users could only create and use one UPI ID per bank. The partnership will give PhonePe users an option to create and use two UPI IDs. The multiple UPI IDs will have Axis Bank’s “@axl” handle.
“Collaborating with multiple banking partners will further strengthen the overall service reliability and uptime of PhonePe’s offering,” the company said in an email statement. PhonePe’s VP Financial Services & Payments said, “We are excited to partner with Axis Bank to provide our users with the option to create and transact using @axl handle on PhonePe. Our platform now enables the users to choose between multiple handles for their UPI transactions on the multi-bank model. This partnership with Axis Bank will ensure greater business continuity for both our customers and merchant partners, making their transaction experience seamless.”
