Do you have multiple Bank accounts?
Whether all your Bank accounts have required Cash balance to make the payments?
People might have more than one bank account but they may not have sufficient Bank balance all the time in all their bank accounts.
Assume you are at a Store and you need to make a Payment of Rs.3,500/- towards Clothing.
But your PhonePe linked Bank account has no sufficient balance i.e. Rs.1,000/- only. But your 2nd bank account has a sufficient balance of Rs.5500/- to make payment.
Now, what will you do, to complete the payment through PhonePe?
Usually, you will transfer money of Rs.2,500/- from your 2nd Bank account to the 1st Bank account of the PhonePe linked account and will make the Payment of Rs.3,500/- from PhonePe.
But from now onwards you don’t need to transfer money from one Bank account to another Bank account.
In this article, I am going to show how to add your 2nd bank account to PhonePe and you can clear any payment without any hassle of transferring money from one bank account to another bank account.
Simply, you can choose to make payment from which bank account you wants to.
