Valorant UPI: Why was Paytm removed from Valorant?
Surprisingly, Paytm as a payment option had suddenly disappeared a few days ago. Riot Games says that it was due to a 'technical glitch', and interestingly the glitch has not been fixed to date, they have added UPI instead. Many believe that Paytm has been replaced with UPI to make the payment process more reliable. While Paytm offered more payment options, UPI is a reliable option.
