Well, most wallets restrict bank transfers once money is in wallet and/or charge a fee to transfer. Paytm does that too - they just waived during the demonization period.

@Simpleguy - they already had/have that feature - they had a limitation that money could be returned only to source - which means they know the source, i.e credit card & easily mark it so. Even if not, should not be too hard to implement.

PhonePe has load from credit card? Do not remember seeing it.

but when two parties are involved, they cannot refuse transfer to bank account for the funds that were added using credit card. though it could have been blocked for users and enabled for retailers after proper kyc. of course that takes away a large part of the whole charm where any shopkeeper can just install Paytm and start accepting money which he can then send to his bank account.
Merchants would still be able to exploit the system.

The only sensible thing, accoording to me, is to charge transfer to bank.

virtual cards are treated as debit cards right? as they cannot be used internationally in any case? and they are generally prepaid? i wouldn't know. but you should now switch to recharging through upi. faster.

do you get otp for that? otp screen shows the final amount charged. for me it showed 510 instead of 500.
