Another feature is “Pay-in-3” which allows customers to slip their payments into three parts with no additional charges or interest. Recently launched UPI, a payments railroad, has become the most popular way Indians transact online. “With the significant growth in wallet share of Slice card, it became increasingly clear that our customers would love to use Slice for all their payment needs. Driving on that, we made our next important product launch with UPI which has been gaining strong early traction,” Rajan Bajaj, CEO and founder of Slice.
