Swiggy Money has been launched as Swiggy’s native digital wallet to take on the likes of Amazon Pay and Paytm. The food delivery platform has partnered with ICICI Bank to enable the new experience through which consumers can avail “one-click” checkouts.
Just like other mobile wallets, Swiggy Money is designed to store a certain amount of money virtually that can be used for any food orders made through the Swiggy app. Existing ICICI Bank customers can begin with the integrated wallet instantly, though non-ICICI Bank customers are required to provide their government ID number to activate the Swiggy Money wallet.
With the arrival of Swiggy Money, customers can pay for their food orders seamlessly.

Further, there is a “split-pay” option through which a payment can be made through a combination of money available in the Swiggy Money wallet and another payment source or instrument to complete a transaction. The new service is also claimed to enable instant refunds to customers.
You can activate Swiggy Money by going to your account from the Swiggy app and then tap the Swiggy Money option.
