Google recently released a Mobile payments app called Tez in India and the important thing to note is, it’s based on the Unified Payments Interface (UPI) launched by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI). You might have already noticed several UPI based apps from banks and the more popular BHIM app (Bharat Interface for Money) and the most popular UPI based private app is the Flipkart’s Phone pe which operates as both UPI based money transfer app and digital wallet and also it has additional recharge and bill pay options.
So What’s special about Tez when we have a lot of other similar apps?
First, It’s from Google, obviously, it’s bound to be good, jokes aside, it’s a relatively simple, lightweight app and it is clutter free as is not the case with Phone pe. The unique factor with Google Tez is the cash mode, which enables you to transfer cash to someone near to you without sharing your Account Number and Mobile Number. It uses a proprietary Audio wave technology to connect with nearby Tez devices just like you use Share It (a popular file-sharing app) but without the need to use Wifi or create hotspots. It’s awesome, you should try it. I personally feel this Cash mode feature will be the USP of this product. You need not share our personal details nor scan a QR code but however, if you wish to use QR codes, it has those functions as well.
Also, they are providing referral bonus to users to refer the app to their friends, once they make their first transaction of value more than 50 both referrer and the referred will get ₹51 as cashback and also they are offering special bonus digitally scratch-able prize vouchers which give you any amount from ₹0 to ₹1,00,000 per transaction up to a maximum of 7 transactions per week. Unlike Phone pe which adds the cashback to its wallet, Tez directly credits the amount to your bank account.
So what are you waiting for, Sign up now using this link and get ₹51 on your first transaction and win lot more cash prizes on further transactions and please share your experience (and how much you won) in the comments below.
