Apple ID payment “not accepted by app” - what does it mean?
Have you ever encountered a situation where you changed your Apple ID and received a message stating that your payment method is not accepted by the app? If so, you might be wondering what is causing this issue. In a recent video transcript by an Apple user, they provided some insight into what could be the cause of this message.
According to the user, one possible reason for the message could be that when you change your Apple ID, such as to another country, or when someone else logs into your account, the payment methods associated with your previous Apple ID may not be compatible with the app you're trying to make a payment on.
For instance, let's look at the use case of using an Apple ID in Denmark. In this scenario, only Danish cards would be acceptable for making payments in the Danish App Store. If you have any other cards attached to your Apple ID from a different country, such as the US, they would not be usable for making payments in the Danish App Store. This explains why you might see the message stating that your payment method is not accepted by the app.
This restriction is in place to ensure that users are using valid payment methods specific to the country or region where the app is being accessed. If you use the Danish App Store, you can only attach a Danish card for payment. Similarly, if you are using the German App Store, you will need a German card, and so on.
So, in essence, if you have payment methods attached to your Apple ID from different countries, it is likely that they will not work in the App Store of a region that requires specific country-specific payment methods. This is why you might receive the message stating that your payment is not accepted by the app.
While it may seem frustrating at first, this restriction is a standard practice to ensure compliance with regional payment regulations. So, if you encounter this message, it is simply Apple's way of ensuring that you are using the appropriate payment methods for the particular app store you are accessing.
We hope this explanation clarifies the issue for you. If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to Apple support for assistance.No answer to your question? ASK IN FORUM. Subscribe on YouTube!
