How to Create an iTunes Account Without Credit Card


Although the iTunes Store primarily sells music, movies and TV shows, it can also be used to download applications for your iPod Touch and iPhone. If you wish to use the iTunes App Store without a credit card, you can do so by creating an account with no credit card or PayPal account attached. By setting up an iTunes account with no credit card or PayPal linked to it, you are limited to downloading free applications. To purchase iTunes media in the future, you must edit your payment information in your iTunes Store account.

  • Click the "iTunes" icon on your Macintosh screen's dock, or double-click the iTunes icon on your PC's desktop.

  • Click the "iTunes Store" tab in the iTunes source list, and scroll down to the "Free Apps" section in the iTunes window. Click the "FREE" button on any of the applications listed in the section.

  • Click the "Create An Account" button in the pop-up window in iTunes and click the "Continue" button.

  • Select the box next to the iTunes license agreement, and click "Continue."

  • Type in your email address and a password for the new iTunes account. Type in a security question, and type the answer to the question in the blank field below the security question.

  • Select the drop-down menu next to the "Month" and "Day" section to select your birth date, and click "Continue."

  • Click the circle next to "None," and enter your mailing address in the appropriate field. Click "Continue."

  • Open your email program to view the email message sent from Apple, and click the link in the email message to verify your account.

  • Type in your email address and password in the iTunes Sign In window, and press the "Return" or "Enter" key to sign in. Click the "Done" button to complete the free account setup.
