How To Pay iTunes with PayPal

itunes-paypalWant to pay for iTunes with the money in your PayPal account? Here’s how to do it:

  1. Open iTunes.
  2. Look for the “Account” tab at the top of the iTunes screen. Click on it, then click on “View My Account” from the dropdown menu.
  3. Enter your password to access your iTunes account.
  4. On the “Account Information” screen, the second item down will be “Payment Type”. To the right of this, you will see the word “Edit”. Click “Edit”.
  5. On the “Edit Payment Information” screen, you will see several logos of credit cards you can use as payment, plus the logo for PayPal. Click the PayPal logo.
  6. On the next screen, you will see a message that says “To validate your PayPal account and verify that you’d like it to be used for iTunes Store purchases, click Continue” Click the “Continue” button in the lower right corner of the screen.
  7. A new window should open up that has the heading “Add PayPal as a Payment Method”. You can either log in to your PayPal account from this screen or input your personal information if you are starting a PayPal account for the first time. After you log in (or fill out your new account information), you will come to a screen that says “Use PayPal as your payment method for your purchases on iTunes Store by clicking Agree and Continue.” Click the “Agree and Continue” button.
  8. You will be on a screen that says “You have successfully created a Billing Agreement.” Click the “Continue to iTunes Store” button.
  9. When you are back in the iTunes store, you will receive confirmation that your PayPal account has been added. NOTE: In order for PayPal to become your payment method, you MUST click the “Done” button at the bottom of this iTunes screen. This step is very easy to miss!
  10. Once you’ve hit the “Done” button, you are done.
