If you can't find the charge on reportaproblem.apple.com

Find out if another account was used to make a purchase.

  1. Search your email for the words "receipt from Apple" or "invoice from Apple".
  2. Look for a receipt that matches the amount that you want to request a refund for.
  3. On the receipt, see what was purchased and which Apple ID was used.

Once you've found the receipt, try these steps:

  • If the receipt is for a member of your Family Sharing group and you're the family organizer, you can still request a refund on reportaproblem.apple.com. Tap or click the Apple ID button, then choose All. Purchases charged to your shared payment method appear.
  • If the receipt is for a different Apple ID, use that Apple ID to sign in to reportaproblem.apple.com.

If you haven't received a receipt yet, try these steps:

  • If the charge is pending, you canʼt request a refund yet. After you receive an email receipt, try to request a refund again.
  • If you have an unpaid order, you need to pay for that order before you request a refund. You might need to update your payment information.
  • If you have multiple Apple IDs, use each one to sign in to reportaproblem.apple.com and look for the charge you want to request a refund for.

Refund eligibility might vary by country or region. See the Apple Media Services Terms and Conditions for details. In countries and regions with consumer law protections, users retain their rights under these protections. In Australia and New Zealand, consumers retain their rights under the applicable consumer protection laws and regulations.
