What is upiqrcode ?

upiqrcode is a npm package for generating custom NPCI-compliant BASE64 QR codes with UPI intent links by generating UPI QR codes with this package it's possible to scan these QR codes with all standard UPI payment apps.

Let's see how to use this package.

To use this upiqrcode package you have to first install upiqrcode package into your Node Js project.

then import into the file where you want to generate the NPCI-compliant UPI qrcode which can be scanned by all UPI apps.

There are two mandatory parameters in the default upiqrcode method which are payeeVPA & payeeName. other fields are not mandatory .

To check how to use this package properly let's refer to the project upi-pay which I have built using Next Js and Typescript.

Let's see how to use the package.

import { useState, useEffect } from "react";
import Image from "next/image"
import upiqrcode from "upiqrcode";
export default function Qr() {
    const [qrCode, setQrCode] = useState("");
    useEffect(() => {
            payeeVPA: "pratyaymustafi@paytm",
            payeeName: "Pratyay Mustafi",
            .then((upi: { qr: string, intent: string }) => {
            .catch((err: Error) => {
    }, []);

    return (
                alt="QR Code"
payeeVPAVPA address from UPI payment accountMandatory
payeeNameMerchant Name registered in UPI payment accountMandatory
payeeMerchantCodeMerchant Code from UPI payment accountOptional

transactionRefUnique transactionid for merchant's referenceOptional
transactionNoteA note will appear in the payment app while the transactionOptional
minimumAmountThe minimum amount that has to be transferredOptional
currencyCurrency of amount (default: INR)Optional

You can also use the above methods according to your use cases. It's better to create a JSON file and use its data in the production code for proper code readability.
