Apple will launch the company’s first online store in India on September 23. The Apple Store will be offering the company’s full range of products and support directly to customers across the country, the Cupertino giant said in a statement. Services offered will include financing options and an available trade-in program.
“We’re proud to be expanding in India and want to do all we can to support our customers and their communities,” said Deirdre O’Brien, Apple’s senior vice president of Retail + People.
All orders from its online store will ship with contactless delivery in India, says Apple. Orders that do not require a signature will be left at the customer’s door, and those that do will need only a verbal confirmation from a safe distance instead of a written signature.
Apple has been operating in India for more than 20 years. Its ongoing investment and innovation support almost 900,000 jobs across the country, said Apple in a statement.
