Create and add money to an iTunes Pass

At Apple Stores and select retailers, you can add store credit directly to the Apple ID that you use for App Store, iTunes Store, and Apple Books purchases.


With an iTunes Pass, you can add funds to the Apple ID that you use to make iTunes Store purchases at Apple Stores or select retailers. You can use the funds to buy music, apps, movies, books, or TV shows. You can also add funds directly to your Apple ID using the payment method that you have on file.

Add money to an iTunes Pass

You can add money to your iTunes Pass at an Apple Store or other select retailers.

  1. Open the Wallet app on your iPhone, iPod touch, or Apple Watch.
  2. Show the iTunes Pass to a store associate and tell them the amount that you'd like to add to your balance. 
  3. The store associate will ring up your purchase through the store, then scan the iTunes Pass on your device to update your balance. You can use your iTunes Pass right away.

After you add store credit to your iTunes Pass, you'll see the updated value in the upper-right corner of the pass. You can also view it in the App Store or iTunes Store, as long as you're logged in with the same Apple ID that's on your iTunes Pass. As you buy apps, music, movies, TV shows, or books, your store credit depletes.
