NPCI International Payments Limited (NIPL), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), signed an MoU with PayXpert on Thursday (August 18) for the acceptance of payment solutions in the United Kingdom.
The collaboration will make Indian payment solutions available for in-store payments on all PayXpert’s Android point-of-sale (POS) devices in the UK. PayXpert would accept QR code payments through the Unified Payments Interface (UPI) and would eventually integrate RuPay card payments. The development follows the Indian government’s efforts to facilitate the use of UPI and RuPay cards in other countries. Last month, Rajkumar Singh, Minister of State for External Affairs, informed Parliament that the NPCI was in talks with 30 countries about this.
