How To Create iTunes Store Account Without Credit Card

itunes-logo Many of us who have the iPhone/iPod are still struggling to install free applications available in the iTunes store. The problem is either we don’t have a credit card to create the account or may be the free application is not available in our country’s iTunes store(most of the free apps are available for US users only).

To solve both the problems there is way in which we can create iTunes account as a US user and also skip entering credit card details. Here are the simple steps to follow:

  1. Launch iTunes application on your computer
  2. Select “iTunes Store” from the left side panel options; displays iTunes Store home page.
  3. Select United States as your location from the country selection drop down menu available at the bottom of the page
  4. After choosing the country, click on "Top Free Apps" section
  5. When the application’s page is loaded – click on "Get App" button; login window will appear.
  6. Click on the "create account" button
  7. Fill out US address details and click on continue. If you don’t know any valid US address you can use Apple US retail store address by pointing your browser to and choosing a store from the list available in the page
  8. After submitting valid US postal address details, iTune Store registration takes you to payment mode page.  Here choose the option "None" and finish the registration.
  9. You will now see the congratulation page.You’re done! Your iTunes Store account is created without credit card and from now onwards you can download all the free applications available to US users from any country.

Note: If you try and create an account directly from the logon box, you will be missing the option called "None" in the payment page, and you end up in compulsory submitting your credit card details.

  1. I followed all of the steps exactly over and over again the only problem is in the payment option there is not a “none” how else can I get an iTunes account?

  2. I have the newest iTunes version as of today. I can’t even get free apps bc i owe $9.99 for songs. I have a credit card w/ the cash to pay for it, but it keeps telling me my security code is invalid!!! I checked it a million times and it’s not invalid at allll. So i can’t get anything or update any apps til i pay off the money. I tried using a diff. credit card, but it did the same thing. Could anyone help me?

  3. I’m using Itunes version 10,
    Is there still a method to create account without Credit Card. It tried few times, but it ends always on Credit Card Page :(

  4. This blog rocks, and yes follow the detailed instructions and it works not matter what country you are signing up from, I did it from Mexico and works like a charm and this is especially helpful because many apps are not available in Itunes in other countries.
