Riot Game's Valorant store brings back UPI payments: Here's how to use it:


Riot Games recently announced the return of UPI payments to the Valorant store via a Twitter post. With the payment option being unavailable after a series of payment errors back in March 2023, the UPI method was removed from the store's official modes of payment. However, with the recent update, the developers have confirmed the reintroduction of BHIM UPI, and Indians will have a much easier time purchasing Valorant Points (VP).

BHIM UPI is a fast and secure way to make payments exclusively in India. This new addition will help players fund their in-game wallets quicker and make purchasing cosmetics a much simpler process. Our guide will help players understand how to use this simple and easy payment process using their local (Indian) UPI IDs.

Riot Games reintroduces UPI as official payment method in Valorant:


Many Indian Valorant players faced major obstacles when making transactions via UPI, and Riot temporarily removed it from the game. The reintroduction hints toward all problems being resolved after a recent update.

It must be noted that BHIM UPI is mainly a feature for Indian nationals and is not a viable payment option for other SEA region players.
