WASHINGTON: Apple has finally introduced three new payment methods for App Store and iTunes users in India. New modes include United Payments Interface (UPI), RuPay and Netbanking.

According to Mashable, the move means Apple users can now pay using domestic payment systems as well as international payment systems like credit cards and debit cards when adding funds at Apple stores. .

The balance can also be used to pay for streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime, and Apple’s own services like Apple Arcade and Apple One.

For those who have never used a RuPay card, it facilitates real-time electronic payments at all banks and financial institutions in India just like Visa or Mastercard and was launched in 2012.

Meanwhile, the UPI instant payment network was launched in 2016 and has seen massive growth in India, with players like PayTM, PhonePe, Google Pay, and more recently WhatsApp dominating the space.

It’s worth mentioning that Android’s Google Play Store has already allowed payments for apps, games, music, movies and more through UPI, RuPay, and Net Banking in the country for a very long time.

Now, Apple users will also be able to enjoy the India-centric payment functionality of the Cupertino tech giant via UPI and more.
