The cashback feature was shared by Indian user Vipin. The user received a certain amount of cashback, after spending payments to the five contacts. Facebook (Meta)-owned WhatsApp appears to be offering up to ₹51 for each transaction, considering that the user has received a total of ₹255 after five payment transactions. WABetaInfo reports that WhatsApp might be convincing people to try out the WhatsApp UPI Payments by offering cashback to certain users.
As mentioned earlier, this feature might be only available to beta testers. As of now, we are not sure if the cashback feature is available to all the users broadly.
