Amazon Pay has finally received person-to-person (P2P) payments feature for Android users which will allow them make instant bank-to-bank transfers using the UPI platform on the Amazon app.

The P2P payments can be done directly from the Amazon app by simply choosing a contact from your phone contact directory or entering UPI ID or bank account of the recipient.

“Amazon auto-detects if the contact is a registered Amazon Pay UPI customer and enables the instant bank to bank transfer. If the contact is not registered for Amazon Pay UPI, the customer has the option to pay using any another BHIM UPI ID or contact’s bank account,” the company said.
