Fix com.google.android.apps.nbu.paisa.user issues
The new Google Pay version has some issues reported by the users, this may be due to the package com.google.android.apps.nbu.paisa.user not responding perfectly. Some of these are similar to the transaction problems that existed in the previous versions also and some are new. Here, we will discuss these issues and their solutions.
Verification of phone number
There may be an issue when you try to verify your phone number. It might be regarding the SMS verification as you have trouble getting the One Time Password while verification. Many reasons can attribute to this problem.
- You might have provided an incorrect phone number.
- The number you provided might not be active or has no balance.
- You might be in a place with a weak signal and thus can’t receive the SMS.
- Troubles with internet connection causing an interruption in the working of Google Pay app.
If none of the above is your condition, then you can ask to Resend the code. If that doesn’t work, try restarting the app or uninstalling it and reinstalling. Restarting your phone also might help.
Adding a bank account
If you are unable to add a bank account, make sure that the same phone number is used both in your bank account and Google Pay. If you use more than one phone number in your bank account, you can ask the bank authorities to remove the extra phone numbers and then try again with Google Pay. This problem can also happen if your bank doesn’t have UPI.
Further, NRI and international accounts do not work in Google Pay. You have to use an Indian account. Joint accounts and current accounts also don’t work in Google Pay. Make sure that you add a savings account.
If none of these is the case, then try restarting Google Pay. If it still doesn’t work, try contacting their support center.
Sending or receiving money
Issues with sending or receiving money are a common problem in UPI apps in general. This can occur if
- You are using the wrong UPI pin.
- Your payment account information is outdated.
- The sender has less than the required amount in their account.
- You might have reached your transaction limit (you can’t send more than 10000 Rs a day through UPI apps or more than 10 times a day through UPI apps).
Except for all these, the transactions mostly fail due to any issue with the Google Pay app. It is a wild review that only 60% of the total Google Pay transactions are successful. The rest of them are either stuck processing or goes failed. There is no proper explanation given by Google for this problem but we can try some methods to solve it.
The transaction gets fails
The following steps can be tried to resolve the problem of the failed transaction if the person to who you are trying to send the money is near to you.
- Ensure that there is a proper internet connection on both your phones.
- Keep the phones close together without any outer cover.
- Ensure that the ‘Pay’ mode of the sender and the ‘Receive mode of the receiver is on.
- Click on Update device collaboration.
- Try sending the money again.
You have to note that this feature doesn’t work for all the phone models.
The transaction is stuck
If you can’t send or receive the payment because the transaction is stuck, you have to check whether the money has been debited from the sender’s account. If yes, then wait for three business days. Else If the transaction is not complete even after that, then you can contact the Google Pay help center. Sometimes there is a technical fault and the package “com.google.android.apps.nbu.paisa.user” does not respond perfectly to the coding, which may a reason of the transaction being stuck.
Didn’t receive rewards
If you don’t get the rewards for your transactions, it may be because your transaction is not eligible for a reward. Only payments above a certain amount will be eligible for rewards and multiple payments to the same person on a single day will not qualify.
In the latest update, Google Pay policies regarding rewards have changed. Now, you may not get rewards in every transaction but moves a step forward in the reward steps. You will receive special rewards at certain steps.
