When I first set up my iTunes account, I didn't have a credit card, so I set it up as a US account, as this was the only way I could create one without a card (and thus use my iPod Touch).

The downside of this is that now that I am trying to add a credit card to my iTunes account, I can't, because it insists on a state and zip code for part of the address, which my Irish credit card obviously doesn't have.

So how can I switch the country of my iTunes account?

  • I have the same problem. I long time ago created my apple account, not because of iTunes, but because I'm a developer. Yesterday I wanted to try out the new iTunes features and my country was set to US and couldn't be changed to Denmark. I didn't manage to solve it.

To change stores you can do so on the iTunes Store:

  1. Click on your Account in the iTunes Store to go to your Account Page.
  2. Click "Change Country or Region". iTunes Screenshot

  3. Choose your Country or Region: iTunes Screenshot 2

Another alternative is to use Apple's Manage your Apple ID site and change your address - next time you use iTunes it will ask you to change your region and verify your address details.

    @neoneye: Sounds like you'll have to contact support and they can take care of it for you.

    There is one gotcha: if you purchased anything one the original country, then you can't access it via the App Store after changing the country of your account. Aug 26, 2011 at 20:20

    @Sylvain’s point cannot be stressed enough: I’ve just lost all my purchases. Slow clap … well done, Apple. Jan 12, 2012 at 14:56

    @Konrad Rudolph: You're purchase are not lost, you can still change back to the old country. But you lose your new purchases ... Jan 16, 2012 at 21:48

    @Sylvain The point is that I cannot access all purchases at the same time, which is a major hurdle for me at the moment. Well, “major” … I simply don’t use the App Store. Jan 17, 2012 at 9:52

I search some and find this video I think it is helpful but most notice it's not test on iTunes 10 you must try it yourself and tell the result.
