The service has been launched in partnership with ICICI Bank and will enable Zomato users in the country to make direct payments to both individuals and merchants. Simply put, with this service, Zomato users in the country will be able to make payments on the platform without having to switch to any other payment platform such as BHIM, PhonePe, or Google Pay.

As per reports, the online food-delivery company has introduced this new feature to reduce its dependence on external payment platforms while reducing the usage of cash on delivery (COD) orders.
Also, this change could potentially impact the operations of Paytm and Google Pay, as the creation of a Zomato UPI account does not involve completing the KYC process.
Zomato has said on a support page that Zomato users can apply for Zomato UPI by downloading the iMobilePay app. The company also added that Zomato users can also link other bank accounts with Zomato UPI if they do not want to create a new UPI ID.
