Apple offers 20% bonus in India for adding money to Apple ID
New Delhi: As the tech giant is asking developers to promote payments using the Apple ID balance, Apple is now giving a 20 percent bonus to Indian users who add funds to their Apple ID.
Users are being notified about a 20 percent bonus when adding funds to an Indian Apple ID account, citing a developer on Twitter, 9To5Mac reported.
For example, if a user adds Rs 2,000 to their Apple ID, they will get Rs 400 as a bonus. If the amount added is Rs 10,000, the user will get an extra Rs 2,000 in their Apple ID.
A new directive from the Reserve Bank of India forces banks to require user approval through a new authentication system to approve recurring transactions using credit and debit cards, the report said.
Apple said that the new directive will impact apps with auto-renewable subscriptions, so that’s why the company asks developers to promote payments using the Apple ID balance, as it won’t be impacted by the new measures.
Offering a 20 percent bonus is definitely a great way to encourage Indian users to change their payment method to avoid issues with Apple’s in-app purchase system, the report said.
