WhatsApp stickers in pay mode: how to use


WhatsApp recently introduced a range of stickers in payments to make money transactions fun. The instant messaging app even worked with five Indian artists to offer their users in India a new package of Payments stickers. These stickers are essentially based on various cultural expressions related to currency exchange. While stickers have long been available on WhatsApp, the introduction of Payment Stickers is new.

The artists who created these payment sticker packs include illustrator Anjali Mehta, sketch artist Anuja Pothireddy, illustrator and wall painter Neethi, illustrator and artist Osheen Silva, and graphic designer Mira Felicia Malhotra.
