APP STORE & ITUNES ACCOUNT BALANCE

App Store & iTunes Account Balance; Redemption; Add Funds.

An App Store and iTunes Gift Code (“Store Credit”) is automatically added to your store credit account (“Account”) balance when purchased directly from the iTunes Store, App Store, iBooks Store, or Apple Music (“Services”) through the “Add Funds” feature. Store Credit is issued and managed by Apple Distribution International (“Apple”). Your Account balance represents the balance of all Store Credit that has been redeemed into your Account. When you have a Store Credit balance in your Account, purchases from the Services will first be deducted from your Account. Any unused balance will remain associated with your Account. If a purchase exceeds your Account balance, you will be asked to pay with another payment method. If your new payment method cannot cover the remaining amount, the transaction will be canceled.

APPLE ID: Use of Store Credit purchased in South Africa requires an Apple ID and acceptance of the Services terms and conditions. An Apple ID is the account you use to access the Services.

Use of Account Balance: Store Credit can be loaded into your account by adding funds to your Account balance through the Services.

You agree to not use Store Credit in any manner that is misleading, deceptive, unfair, or otherwise harmful to Apple or its customers. We reserve the right, without notice to you, to void or deactivate Store Credit (including a portion of your Account balance) without a refund, suspend or terminate customer accounts, suspend or terminate the ability to use the Services, cancel or limit orders and bill alternative forms of payment if we suspect Store Credit was obtained, used, or applied to an Apple ID fraudulently, unlawfully, or otherwise in violation of these terms and conditions.

If you use the payment method on file with the Services to add funds to your Account balance, prior to charging the payment method on file, an authorization will occur for the amount of your purchase or reload transaction.

Restrictions: Store Credit is not redeemable for cash and cannot be returned for a cash refund (except as required by law); exchanged; resold; used to purchase Gifts; used for purchases on the Apple Online Store; or used in Apple Retail Stores. Store Credit can only be used to purchase content from the Services. Unused balances are not transferable. Apple may provide you with information about the redemption status of Store Credit you purchase.

Store Credit purchased in South Africa can only be redeemed into an Account in South Africa, its territories, and possessions.

If you choose to delete your Apple ID, you must spend your Account balance prior to closing the account.

Risk of Loss: Apple is not responsible for lost or stolen Store Credit. Risk of loss and title for Store Credit passes to the purchaser in Ireland upon electronic transmission to the recipient.

Apple reserves the right to close accounts and request alternative forms of payment if Store Credit is fraudulently obtained or used on the Service.
