As explained here, there is often a delay of anywhere from a few hours to a couple of days between an iTunes/App Store purchase being made and the payment going through.

If I change my payment information after making a purchase, but before I am billed, which one will be used?

1 Answer 1


After trying it; it seems that the payment is taken from the card set up at the time of purchase.
