What is VPA?
VPA is a virtual private address which uniquely connects a user’s identity with his/her bank account. You can just share your VPA with any merchant site, and it can make a payment request to you.
You can also send money to anybody by using their VPA instead of their mobile number. You don’t have to share private and confidential information like mobile number, bank account number, IFSC codes, etc.
