Step 3: Enter the 6-digit OTP that was sent to your phone number to confirm.

Step 4: We’ll now send you information about the most recent IPOs. From the list, choose the IPO for which you want to pre-apply or apply.

Step 6: You will now be asked to put in the price you want to bid at. We suggest bidding at the cut-off price because if the IPO is oversubscribed, bids lower than the cut-off price are unlikely to get an allotment.

Step 7: Now, choose from the list how many lots you want to apply for, from 1 to 9. If you want to choose more than 9 lots, click “more” and tell us how many you want from the list.

Step 8: You will now see a summary of the information of your bid. To move forward, click “Proceed,” and if you want to make a change, click “Change bid.”

Step 9: Now you have to put in your UPI ID.

Step 10: Choose “Accept and proceed” to send in your IPO application or “Decline” if you change your mind and don’t want to apply for the IPO.

Step 11: You can now check the progress of your application at any time in your WhatsApp chat.
