How to start using UPI for fund transfer to my trading account with Zerodha?

    The first thing to know here is that you have to use Zerodha Kite app for UPI transfer. Secondly, the UPI ID you created should be with the same bank that you have mapped your Zerodha trading account.

    Unlike other UPI transfers, you should not transfer funds to Zerodha UPI address from your bank's UPI App. If you do so, the money would be deducted from your bank account but would not reflect in your trading account. Rather, you have to use Zerodha's Kite mobile app. The steps are as follows:

    • Go to the "Funds" page on Kite and click on "Add Funds".
    • Select UPI as the payment mode in the window that opens up.
    • Enter your UPI ID and the amount you want to transfer and click on continue. Once you click on "Continue" button, you'll see next page that will ask you to "Go on the UPI app on your phone".
    • Go to the UPI app on your phone, you'll receive a collect request from Zerodha. Approve the request here. This will require you to enter your UPI PIN on the next step. Enter the UPI PIN that you receive on your mobile phone.
    • Now you will get a confirmation window on the Zerodha payment page. Make sure you click on the 'Close' button. If you directly close the window, the transfer will not show up on your account instantly.
