How To Buy Apps Restricted to US iTunes Store Without Credit Card

If you live outside of the United States, eg Nigeria; chances are you occasionally run across an app in the Apple App Store that you want, but can’t download due to its unavailability in Nigerian App Store. If you are really desperate to get such apps, all you need to do is to make Apple believe you live in the US. Luckily, this is possible with a free US iTunes account and US iTunes Gift cards.

To download a FREE app restricted to the US App store, all you just need to do is to create a US iTunes account. Once verified, you can always use it to log in to US app store irrespective of your location, even without changing your IP address.

For you to buy an app restricted to the US App store, you will need to provide a payment method, apart from creating a US iTunes account. If you live outside of the United States, the good news is that you can use US iTunes gift cards to add funds to your account for you to be able to purchase apps from the store.

As a Nigerian, your non-US credit card will not work with the US store, but luckily it is easy enough to buy US iTunes gift cards through sites like QuickTeller and iTunes4Naija.
