The much-awaited Apple iPhone XS and XS Max went on for sale in India earlier today at a starting price of Rs 99,900. Alongside other players such as Flipkart, Amazon, Paytm Mall also announced the availability of the new iPhones on the platform. However, Paytm Mall has come up with an ‘Additional Exchange Bonus‘ offer, under which it’s offering Rs 7,000 bonus on top of the existing exchange value. This essentially means that Paytm Mall is making the new iPhones affordable by Rs 7,000 to every user, but this offer is applicable only for users who purchase the new iPhones under exchange scheme.
Exchange iPhone 8 Plus and Get iPhone XS 64GB at Rs 74,900
Firstly, Paytm Mall is offering this exchange offer on a slew of smartphones, but the maximum exchange discount value is given only with the Apple iPhone 8 Plus. If a customer wants to purchase the iPhone XS 64GB variant by exchanging the iPhone 8 Plus, then the final value of the product becomes Rs 74,900, which means a total exchange value of Rs 25,000. So Paytm Mall keeps the value of iPhone 8 Plus at Rs 18,000 and the Rs 7,000 will be added as exchange bonus offer, which on the whole, brings down the value of the iPhone XS 64GB variant to Rs 74,900.
Paytm Mall is offering exchange offer on smartphones from brands such as Apple, Asus, Gionee, Google, HTC, Huawei, LG, Lenovo, LeTv, Motorola, Micromax, Nokia, OnePlus, Oppo, Samsung, Sony Xperia, Vivo and Xiaomi. However, the exchange offer is not valid on the latest models. Smartphones such as Galaxy S9, S9+, S8, S8+, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL and so on are not available for exchange.

The e-commerce arm of Paytm on Friday announced the availability of the newly-launched iPhone models on its website and mobile app. The phones would be delivered within 24 hours to customers in more than 20 cities, said a statement from Paytm Mall.
