Apple is now offering App Store gift cards on Amazon in India, a move that has been anticipated. Each of the gift cards comes in a variety of values and may be used to purchase applications from the Apple App Store, games from the Apple Arcade, or subscriptions to Apple Music and Apple TV+. They can also be used to purchase books and audiobooks from the Apple Books store.
The App Store gift cards are available in quantities of Rs. 200, Rs. 500, Rs. 1,000, Rs. 2,000, and Rs. 5,000, with the highest denomination being Rs. 5,000. The gift cards make it easier for customers to purchase applications, games, books, and subscriptions without the need to use a debit or credit card to complete the transaction. It may also be used to purchase products and services from the iTunes Store or to subscribe to an iCloud account.
Furthermore, buyers may purchase gift cards through Amazon utilising the cash on delivery payment option, and then use that gift card on the App Store, so removing the requirement for a debit or credit card to complete the transaction.
Although Amazon India sells gift cards, Apple specifically notes on its dedicated gift card website that gift cards purchased from Amazon India are exclusively good on purchases made in the Indian App Store. It is important to note that these gift cards are not redeemable for cash, cannot be resold, and cannot be used for shipping outside of India. Additionally, there are no refunds or exchanges available.
It is also crucial to remember that these gift cards may only be used to make purchases of Apple products and services and that they cannot be used for any other type of payment. “If you’re contacted to use the codes for any other payment, you may very well be the victim of a fraud, and you should immediately report it to your local authorities,” Apple says.
Although there has been no official statement indicating when Apple Gift Cards would be available in India, this move will make it much easier for anybody to acquire apps and games, as well as give them as gifts.
