When you shop for friends and family living abroad, you will be billed in the currency of the country where you want your products to be delivered.

Apple does not charge a fee for international orders, however, your bank will determine exchange rates when the order is shipped and your credit card is charged. Any additional charges for an international transaction are determined by banking partners and the issuer of your credit card. Please contact your credit card issuer for details.

Please note that your order will be subject to the terms and conditions of the country where you want your products to be delivered.

Gift Messaging

For select items delivered to a physical shipping address, you can include a free gift message on the packing slip. No pricing information will be included with the shipment. Free gift message is not available for pickup orders.

For eligible pickup orders, you may be able to add Apple Gift Wrap at an additional cost. This will enable you to leave a message for the recipient. See the Gift Wrap section below for more details.

When you select to put an item in your bag, just select the checkbox that says "This is a gift" or "Add a free gift message." In the Bag, click the Add Free Gift Message link, enter your message, then click the Save Message link.

If you're sending a gift directly to a friend or family member, you may want Apple to email them carrier and tracking information as their items are shipped. For more details, visit the Shipping & Pickup section of Help.

Gift Wrapping

When you order select products, you can add a special touch to your gift. Apple Gift Package is a signature gift box with a red ribbon and a greeting card with your personal message.

To add a gift package:

  • When you add an eligible product to your bag, just select the checkbox that says "This is a gift," and you will be given the option to add gift wrap.
  • Please note: if you are planning to pick up your product in an Apple Store, selecting a gift package will add extra time to your order.
