The Virtual Payment Address or VPA is a unique ID given to an individual using the Unified Payment Interface (UPI) service to send or receive money. In the case of UPI Collect, VPA is a mandatory parameter and merchants are always advised to check if the VPA is valid or not.
Validating the VPA will help in reducing the failure rate due to incorrect VPA.
Currently, Juspay has verify VPA API support for the acquiring partners listed here: wwww(click to view)
