WhatsApp is testing a new feature for its in-app payment service. The messaging app will soon be able to offer its users a partial refund on payments. This feature is currently being tested with no official release yet.
WhatsApp’s new payments feature could be India-exclusive or launch first in India. In a beta test that WABetaInfo studied, cashback is capped at 10 rupees per payment, but it can be increased by the comment of the official release of the feature.
WABetaInfo also informs that users can only receive one cashback. However, it is unclear if this means that WhatsApp will end up giving you a one-time cashback when you use the feature, or it will be credited with every payment. There is also confusion as to whether this cashback will only be for new users or for existing users.
In the beta version, the message “Get cashback on the next payment” is displayed above the chat list, by clicking on which you can test the function.
