Valorant is one of the most popular multiplayer shooter games. As of now and the game has a big fanbase in India as well. Many players purchase in-game items like skins and weapons in Valorant. Recently Valorant removed Paytm as a payment option from the India server. It was the only platform where players could buy Valorant points in INR. Just hours ago Valorant added UPI as a payment method to buy Valorant points. Let’s see how you can buy Valorant points using UPI.
How To Buy Valorant Points Using UPI
The process of buying Valorant points remains the same even though the payment gateway is changed. Follow the below-mentioned steps to buy Valorant points.

Why Was Paytm Removed From Valorant?
Paytm was the only payment gateway where Indian players could buy Valorant points in INR. Suddenly the Paytm payment gateway was removed. There is no official announcement as to why Paytm was sacked by Valorant. Many believe that Valorant sacked Paytm for UPI because UPI is more popular and makes buying Vaolorant points easier for Indian players. Even though the payment gateway is changed the Valorant point packages remain the same for UPI as well
Why You Should Buy Valorant Points From UPI instead of Other Payment Options?
Players can buy 2050 Valorant points for INR 1600 where if you buy a pack in Euro’s you get 2150 valorant points for INR 2000 (converted). The same is the case with all the INR packs which means you get more Valorant points for cheaper if you buy them using UPI. We would recommend Indian players to buy Valorant points using the UPI option instead of other payment options.
