Apple has begun to accept App Store and iTunes payments via three new methods in India. Customers in the country can now pay for App Store and iTunes purchases via UPI, Rupay Cards, and Net Banking for the first time.

First noticed by Twitter users and shared by MacRumors, the move means that Apple users can now pay using domestic payment systems as well as international payment systems like credit cards and debit cards when adding funds to Apple's stores.

As with other payment methods, the three new options can also be used to pay for services that are available via the App Store payment mechanism including Apple One, Apple Arcade, and more.
