How to buy from the USA Apple iTunes store

January 29th, 2010

If you want to buy from the USA iTunes store it is pretty easy. These are the steps you need to follow.

Step 1 – Purchase an USA iTunes card from me (see here $100 Instant USA iTune Card and hereĀ $100 USA Apple iTunes Card). You will need the code from the card to open the account (this is emailed to you), otherwise iTunes will ask you to put in your credit card or banking details. You can’t use your Australian credit card as the billing address is not in the USA.

Step 2 – Go into the US store, which you can access by changing the country at the very bottom of the iTunes page.

Step 3 – Select the “Redeem Voucher” at the bottom of the page. iTunes will then ask you to register or log in, so you will need to register as a new user.

Step 4 – Register as a new user. To do this you need to use a physical address in the USA. You can just use any real address at random, try www.yellowpages.com for example. The address is not verified by Apple since you are only redeeming a gift code. I would advise using an address in Oregon as they don’t have state sales tax.

Step 5 – Redeem your card and go shopping!

 

Edit. Some suggestions if you are having problems setting up a USA account.

1. Try using a US proxy service when setting up the account. The simplest is https://mediahint.com/ but if you Google for “free USA proxy” you will find lots of others.

2. “Purchase” a free app from the US iTunes store before Step 5. This apparently avoids the need to have to enter a US credit card number.

    PriceUSA is a great concept and the service I have received especially the regular communication of the status of my order has been excellent.

    I will have no hesitation in ordering again and would highly recommend PriceUSA to anybody out there who may be a bit uncertain.

    I have just had a great experience with PriceUSA. They keep in very good touch with updates all along the way.

    I will definitely be using this service again.

    I am unable to obtain iTunes 10 yet but certainly one
    of my buddies claims its available in Software Update for him.
    I wonder if they deliberately staggered downloads or if its a
    fluke?

    Brilliant service. Run by real people and reliable. Have used them way back when they were just a few people running a business from home. Australian based, not a pretend mob from somewhere offshore. Have now used for department store makeup shipping as well as US itunes card which came in 6 hours. Ordered 11am, used bank transfer (same major australian bank as one of their accounts), they had cleared funds by 4pm and I had the code an hour later.
