About making purchases in Europe
When you buy something from the App Store or another Apple media service or buy iCloud+, you might be prompted to authenticate your credit or debit card with your card issuer. Or when you add a new payment method, you might need to authenticate it. When this happens, follow the onscreen instructions.
If you can't complete the onscreen instructions that are provided by your card issuer, contact your card issuer. If you’re using a device that doesn't have an internet browser, such as an Apple TV or Apple Watch, you’ll be asked to use another device to verify your payment method.
In Europe, purchases might not be grouped on the same bill. Each purchase that you make is charged to your payment method as soon as you buy it. Learn more about how purchases are billed.
About using Apple Pay in Europe
You can make App Store or Apple media service purchases using Apple Pay with any eligible card in Wallet on your iPhone or iPad. Learn how to set up a card in Wallet.
If you have multiple cards in Wallet, you can choose a different card than your default card when you are making a purchase using Apple Pay.
To stop using Apple Pay for purchases from the App Store and other Apple media services, remove Apple Pay from your list of payment methods:
- Open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
- Tap your name, then tap Payment & Shipping.
- Tap Edit and remove Apple Pay.
