With over 28 billion transactions processed in 2021 alone, India has been generating tremendous amounts of financial data since the inception of the UPI in 2016. This exponential increase in the generation of data has led to the formation of several fintech companies like Phonepe, Bharatpe and Paytm.

Not only this, but Silicon Valley giant Google also entered the India fintech ecosystem back in 2017 with its application Tez (currently Google Pay).

Due to the enormous competition in the UPI payment processing ecosystem, Google came up with the concept of referrals to increase its market share.

This article will talk about the referral feature on Google Pay and how you can earn up to 100 referral rewards using the same.

What is the referral feature on Google Pay?

When it comes to customer accusation, marketing can only take you so far, and when you are in a competitive market like India, you have to think out of the box, which Google did with its referral approach.

Like any referral scheme, the app pays both the invitee and the inviter when a certain number of conditions are satisfied.

So how much does each party get in this referral scheme that Google offers? Well, the answer is quite simple.

For every person you invite to Google Pay, you get Rs 201, and the invitee gets Rs 21. After that, the inviter gets Rs 101, and the invitee receives the same Rs 21.

What’s important to note is that Google does not transfer this money in wallets like other platforms, and the amount is credited directly into your bank account.

Rewards will be credited to your back account within 7 days and you can contact Google support if you didn’t receive the reward after 7 days.
