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 the mandatory param 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, we have verify VPA API support for the below-acquiring partners.
|vpa||String||The VPA for which the eligibility has to be checked||Mandatory|
|merchant_id||String||The merchant id that the merchant holds with Juspay||Mandatory|
|vpa||String||The VPA sent in the request|
|status||String||The expected value is "VALID" for a valid VPA and "INVALID" for incorrect VPA|
|customer_name||String||The name of the customer provided during VPA generation|
The merchant may relay on the param "status" to check if the VPA is valid or not.
