Two iTMS accounts?

No Gravatar

I’m just curious: If I live in Canada and have a credit card account in the US, I can use that account to buy music in the US… What if I live in Luxembourg, have a credit card account there, but also an account in let us say France. Would I then have the opportunity to buy in iTMS with the two credit cards keeping two accounts but having one playlist containing my “Purchased Music”???

  1. Thanks Guillaume! It might be even more relevant to UK residents living abroad. At the moment I see a significant difference in the offerings between the UK and the LU store.
    Bigger differences might exist for Finns living abroad as well as other Scandinavians (DK, N and S) (once their stores will open).

  2. Update: this is what they replied:

    “You may only have one country associated with each account. You will need to open a second account and include the billing address and payment card from the other country.”

    I suppose they have one ‘country’ entry for each account row in their DB. Quite sad how US companies never seem to understand we Luxembourgers can be abroad in a couple of minutes if we cycle in any direction.

    So I opened another account in Luxembourg – it is cheaper – and bought an album. The songs I have bought from either account now play in iTunes and show up in the Purchased Music playlist. However, I have to log in again every time I change from one store to another. remains my primary source of music. The UK store has free songs and songs I can’t find on and the LU store has less stuff allofmp3 doesn’t have and is slightly cheaper, but has no free songs. I now check up to three sources before buying a song…

    Does this answer your question?
