If you want to check your account balance using WhatsApp, then first you have to add your bank account number to the Whatsapp payment method.
WhatsApp is one of the most used social media platforms that use the instant messaging service app. It also helps to conduct financial transactions and check bank account balances easily.
For bank-to-bank transactions, the WhatsApp Payments feature uses UPI. The Nationwide Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) developed this Unified Payment Interface (UPI) that is the national payment system supported by major banks in India.
In order to identify details of the bank account, WhatsApp uses a phone number linked to the bank account. To check the account balance through WhatsApp, the account number of your bank needs to be added to your payment method. There are two ways to check account balance through WhatsApp, one is by using settings and the other one is by sending the money.
