Facebook wants to bring WhatsApp Pay to India in six months | TechRadar

Facebook is preparing to roll out WhatsApp Pay in many more countries in the next six months. Developing markets such as India, the Philippines, Indonesia, Brazil, etc. will be the main drivers.

WhatsApp Pay existed in India back in 2018 as a part of a trial run where Facebook could test its functionality with a million users. It was, however, not allowed to go ahead with a full-fledged release owing to licensing issues. Companies looking to get a digital payments license in India are mandated by the government to have 100% data localization, which WhatsApp is yet to achieve. This could lead to a delay in its Indian launch.
