Google Pay now lets you create your own custom amount QR code which means if you want to receive ₹ 5000 from the sender then you can create ₹5000 QR code and share it with the sender. When the sender scans this QR code, this amount will be entered automatically and he can pay the amount. Also, the sender can’t change the amount.
This custom QR code will be reset once you close the Google Pay application and you can see your default normal QR code again.
Once you create the custom QR code, you can save this QR code in your phone gallery as an image and share it with anyone to receive the amount set by you for the QR code. The QR code will remain active as long as the bank account is linked to Google Pay.
So let’s create a custom amount QR code on Google Pay.
