The National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) recently emphasised the importance of conversational payments to increase convenience and accessibility for users. They also launched Bharat BillPay Connect, an initiative aimed at effortless bill payments through voice conversations which enables users to pay bills through voice commands for example, using Alexa and Amazon Pay.
Conversational payments ensure that digital bill payments are accessible to all, irrespective of their tech proficiency levels. Amazon Pay has been working to revolutionise voice-enabled payments for its customers. Amazon Pay with Alexa makes it seamless and convenient to handle your everyday payment needs including bill payments, recharges, and more using UPI.
Here's a look at several Amazon Pay features available via Alexa on your Echo smart speakers or any other Alexa-enabled device:
