Less than a month ago, a new word was added to our everyday vocabulary and boy did it turn our world upside-down! Yes, you guessed it! Demonetisation has indeed kept us on our toes, but on the bright side, we were also driven towards the advantage and convenience of digital wallets like FreeCharge. FreeCharge, one of India’s fastest growing digital wallet is a seamless and secure answer to a cashless world. The best part is, any and every FreeCharge transaction is completed in less than 10 seconds with ‘no typing, only tapping’ mechanism. Easy-peasy!

To break it down for you, we have put together unique FreeCharge features that are bound to make your jaw drop:
- P2P & P2M payments in less than 10 seconds:
Do you need to pay your friend for the movie ticket he bought for you or for that cab ride? With Person to Person (P2P) you can easily transfer funds to him/her if they on your friends list on FreeCharge. Not only that, using Person to Merchant you can locate nearby small shopkeepers, chat, order, exchange views and product images and pay on the chat once the order is delivered. All you need is their phone number or merchant code. No lengthy card/account details!
- Chat n Pay:
Was there ever a time when you were chatting with your parents and you realized you were out of money or that time when your friend owed you money? Or were ever embarrassed by a friend in a group chat by reminding you of what you owe him? If so, you can use the Chat-n-Pay platform on FreeCharge to take care of your monetary transactions in a safe and secure way while enjoying the company of your loved ones. Remember, it will take less than 10 seconds.
- Split Bill Option:
Going out for a lunch with your friends or your colleagues is fun until the bill arrives. Everyone taking out their cards or cash, trying to figure out how much they need to pay turns into a tedious task. But fret not, with the help of the Split Bill Option via FreeCharge you can easily split the bill among each other and save yourself the trouble.
- Whatsapp payments:
Do you forward all the jokes you read on Whatsapp? The jokes being funny are debatable, but the ease of using Whatsapp is certainly not. So, why not use the Chat-n-Pay service to send and receive money in a secure way in less than 10 seconds through WhatsApp.
It is the season to share the joy and spread some smiles. It is also the time when the cold weather in parts of the country makes life harder for the under-privileged. The demonetization move has suddenly impacted the ability of NGOs to receive contributions from willing donors. FreeCharge is doing its bit to help create digital donations bridges through its app. In a recently launched feature, it now has a “Donate” button on its app, through which FreeCharge users can make instant donations to leading NGOs in the country. The Akshaya Patra Foundation, Magic Bus India Foundation, Maitri India, Foundation for Mother and Child Health, Nizamuddin Dargah, Abhoy Mission and others NGOs are already live on FreeCharge. Many more NGOs catering to the causes such as children’s education, mother and child care, care for the elderly will get added over the next few weeks.
- UPI Payments with Axis Bank:
Do you want to transfer money to a different bank or pay a merchant, both online and offline directly from your bank account without the hassle of typing credit card details, IFSC code, or net banking/wallet passwords? The partnership between FreeCharge and Axis bank to launch Unified Payments Interface (UPI) enabled payment on its Android app enables instant seamless transactions from a smartphone using a virtual payment address (VPA). Customers can create multiple handles/VPA linked to their bank accounts. When the customer makes the payment using his handle or Axis Bank’s VPA, he will be transferring money from his bank account to the merchant or beneficiary account without exposing the customer account details such as account number, IFSC code etc. The merchant or beneficiary will only be able to see the customer VPA in this process.
- Plan & Schedule your Month-end Payments:
Nobody likes to pay bills, but forgetting to pay them makes things even worse. But worry not; with the FreeCharge Bill Reminders option you can pay your bills on time! You will receive reminders for various bills and other recurring payments two days in advance and pay them in a swift and secure way with FreeCharge wallet in less than 10 seconds
- On the Go Pin:
FreeCharge’s Patented ‘On-the-go-pin’ technology is a home-grown technology to beef up security and privacy of data for customers. It lets merchants with POS machines accept payments through FreeCharge wallets through an OTP available on the consumer’s app. An automatic OTP on the FreeCharge app keeps changing every 3 minutes to ensure secure transactions. The advantage here, you don’t need data or internet connection to access the OTP. Did we just break a digital wallet myth for you?
