The production description doesn't mention it for some reason (maybe they think it is obvious), but this is a cast iron pan. Every cast iron pan, including this one, will work on an induction cooktop.
Many iron pans are not machined finely, so if you use cast iron on induction with glass surface (as are practically all modern induction heaters), you risk tiny scratches. I don't mind them and use a very similar pan, but if you want to keep your cooktop magazine-shiny, you should buy enameled or forged iron, or leave iron completely out and buy steel.
Cast iron is in general a good choice for induction cooking, as it is a ferrous material.
Depending on what type of induction cooktop (or burner or hob) you have, it may scratch the surface. Some people just recommend slipping parchment paper under the pan to reduce scratching.
