An earlier report from Reuters even detailed the amount that users can expect in the form of cashback. It claims that WhatsApp will be offering up to Rs 33 for transfers made using the payments option.

The interesting bit is that this cashback may not be limited by the amount being transacted. The cashback will be spread across three transactions. Even for transactions as low as Re 1, WhatsApp will count it as a valid transaction.
