As an investor, timely investments are vital for reaching your financial goals.

Over the past few years, Mutual Fund investments through SIPs have experienced a recent surge in popularity. Regular small investments in SIPs harness the power of compounding, leading to potential long-term returns. However, managing multiple SIPs and keeping track of payment due dates can be a challenge. In order to overcome this challenge and to make the investment process even more seamless, Motilal Oswal Financial Services Limited has introduced the AutoPay for SIPs. 

In this article, we will guide you through the process of setting up AutoPay for your SIPs using OTP verification, making your investment process hassle-free, timesaving, secure and automated.

  • What is AutoPay?

AutoPay, provided by banks and mutual fund companies, automates payments by deducting funds from your bank account on a designated date each month. This simplifies payment processes and ensures timely transactions, preventing missed due dates.  

  • Why choose AutoPay?

Here are some of the benefits of using AutoPay for your SIPs:

1. Convenient and timesaving

2. Enables disciplined investing 

3. Cost-effective 

4. Reduces risk of missed investments and late fees 

5. Flexibility and control 

6. Secure and reliable

  • Why add OTP Verification?

OTP verification adds an extra layer of security, safeguarding your bank account and investments from unauthorised access. Through AutoPay and OTP, you receive a unique code via your registered mobile number or email address for each payment. Simply entering this code ensures the transaction's confirmation and completion.

After learning about the advantages of AutoPay with OTP verification offered by Motilal Oswal Financial Services Limited, you may be eager to apply this feature to all your Mutual Fund SIPs.

So, here is the guide which will walk you through the process of setting up AutoPay for your SIPs using OTP verification:

Step 1: Log in to your Motilal Oswal Mutual Fund trading account

The first step is to log in to your mutual fund account using your username, password and other required details (if any). This could be done either through the mutual fund provider's website or the mobile app.

Navigate to the SIP section on the dashboard. Choose the SIPs that you want to set up AutoPay for. You can choose one or multiple SIPs depending on your preference.

Step 3: Navigate to AutoPay option
