Do you live in India? Do you want to avoid long, tedious procedures every time you are making a deposit at a gambling website? If the answer to both of these questions is yes, you must be really eager to find out how to deposit using PhonePe. The process is as simple as they get, and we will share all the details here.
Download and Install the PhonePe App
If you already have the PhonePe app on your phone or tablet, skip to Step 2. If not, pay a visit to the PhonePe official website to download the app.
Alternatively, you can go to the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store and do the same. Install the app and proceed to register an account.
Verify Your Phone Number
The registration process will require you to provide and verify your mobile phone number. The number you share must be the same number you have linked to your bank account. That’s where the funds will come from.
The app will send a unique OTP to your phone number. Copy and paste it in the designated field, then click “Verify” to continue.
Activate Your PhonePe Account
On the next page, you will need to input some personal details. These include the usual – email address, full name etc. You’ll also have to enter a 4-digit password or your account. After accepting the terms, your app account will be activated.
Create a Virtual Payment Address (VPA)
Moving on to the next stage, you must create a new Virtual Payment Address (VPA). This will serve as some sort of username for your PhonePe account. Instead of typing in the account number every time you’re sending or receiving money, you will use the VPA.
Link Your Bank Account to the PhonePe App
Launch the app and tap on the “Add Bank Account” button. Since PhonePe is part of the UPI network, you will be prompted to choose your bank from a list of UPI-supported banks. With the help of your verified mobile phone number, PhonePe will retrieve your bank account details.
For the purpose of transaction authorizations, you will set up a UPI PIN at this stage. The option to do this is located under your account details. It is a 6-digit number that will enable you to use PhonePe at numerous merchant sites, including virtual casinos.
Pick One of the PhonePe Betting Sites
What is left is to choose a casino that deserves you as a member. Pick a gambling website that accepts PhonePe deposits and set up an account. Log in and navigate to the banking page.
Over there, you will see a list of methods available for deposits and withdrawals. Select PhonePe as your method of choice.
Carry Out a Deposit
If PhonePe is not presented as a separate method, you can go with UPI and still carry out your deposit using PhonePe. A form will pop up where you will typically need to supply provide the deposit amount, your registered mobile number and the PhonePe account name.
Next, you will need to open the PhonePe application on your phone. You will enable the transfers option and provide the casino’s UPI ID and further details required to wrap up the process. Sending money directly to the casino’s PhonePe usually involves an intermediary phone number you might need to save in your contacts.
Ideally, the deposit will reflect in your account instantly. In less ideal cases, it shouldn’t take more than 4 hours for the funds to arrive. Now, bet away!
