You can use mobile phone billing to pay for your App Store and iTunes Store purchases, as well as other purchases, if your carrier supports it.
How much does an iPhone bill cost?
Apple’s new iPhone X costs $1,000 or $999 in technical terms. Who is going to pay $1,000 for a phone?
It’s possible. Especially when you consider that paying $1,000 in one go is unlikely. You can buy the phone in monthly installments from either Apple or your telecom carrier.
If you finance your phone through Apple’s upgrade program, that $1,000 iPhone X that’s for a 64-gigabyte model will end up costing you $49.91 each month. Of course, after you factor in a wireless plan, which you’ll have to purchase separately from a carrier, you’ll end up paying more.
If you finance your phone through your carrier, your bill should be identical. Here’s how much different Apple iPhone models will set you back if you use Apple’s in-house financing scheme. A new entry-level iPhone 7 is now available for $22.88 per month. A top-of-the-line iPhone X will set you back $1,149 per month, or $56.16 per month.
What method of payment does Apple employ?
Note that for pickup items, business leases, wire transfers, and money orders are not acceptable payment methods.
For purchases shipping to numerous addresses, some payment methods are ineligible. If you’re shipping an order to several addresses and you’re using an ineligible payment method, you’ll need to either modify your payment method or ship your order to a single address.
Using more than one payment method
You can also pay for your order using a combination of payment options. Choose from the following credit card and gift card combinations:
If you’re paying with a credit card company’s gift card, you can combine it with one credit card during checkout.
Troubleshooting credit card & debit card payment errors
- Check the card type (such as American Express), account number, and expiration date twice.
- Call the card issuer’s customer service 800 number on the back of your card if everything appears to be in order. Before authorizing your transaction, your credit card company may need to communicate with you.
In addition to the account number, the card security code is a unique three or four digit number printed on the front (American Express) or back (Visa/MasterCard/Discover) of your card.
Daily spending limits for Debit Cards
Even if there is enough money in an account, most debit and check cards have daily spending limits that can cause an order to be delayed significantly. When you place an order using a debit card, money are immediately reserved in your bank account. If you’re experiencing problems placing your order, please contact your card’s issuing bank for information on your daily spending limitations.
