Hi @swiggy_in & @SwiggyCares May I please know on why the app is not letting us to pay via UPI wallets. The orders are usually started to process after the payments are done correct? I feel that the users should be allowed to pay first via their preferred payment mode first. pic.twitter.com/cgL7taNinc
