Not only the referrer, the referred friend would also get the reward. The reward to the new user may be much higher. It is similar to the scratch card scheme of Tez.
Referrer Would Get ₹75

How To Refer Phonepe Wallet
Use Referral Link
To refer Phonepe to your friend you have to use the referral link. That would be sufficient. Unlike Google Pay (Tez), there is no need to enter the referral code. The referral link is a better way than the code. You can share this link through the WhatsApp, mail, SMS or any other means.
Everyone Has A Referral Link
Every Phonepe Wallet User has its own referral link. This link is unique to every user. In this mechanism, you would get cashback for the users who have downloaded the Phonepe through your link.
Referral Link in ‘My Account’ Section
- You can find your referral link the My Account section. It is at the bottom strip.
- In my account page, search for Invite and earn. Tap on the section.
- Now you can see referral link. You can copy this link or share it directly from there. In my case the invite link is https://phon.pe/ru_chanew13b.
- A new user must download the Phonepe app by clicking on the invite link. This would make him eligible for cashback reward. For a referrer to get cashback the new user must link the Phonepe App with the Bank account.
The Flipkart promoted Phonepe is one of the best UPI apps. It is very user-friendly and gives you many facilities. In fact, before the Tez, it was the fastest growing UPI app. But, the Google Pay (Tez) Rewards scheme has changed the equation. Hence, Phonepe was forced to come with its lucrative cashback scheme. Meanwhile, the BHIM app is also giving a ₹51 reward to the first-time users.
This highly competitive environment has been beneficial for the common man as fund transfer has become not only free but also it gives some income. The UPI fund transfer is free. This competition would become more fierce once Whatsapp Pay is fully launched. As It would be a real challenge to Phonepe and Paytm.
