How to create and use your Apple ID without a credit card or payment method (easy steps)

  • Learn how to create or use your Apple ID without entering the sensitive information of your credit card or any payment method.

Aside from purchasing applications, music, books, etc. from the App Store, you would also need to associate a payment method with your Apple ID if you were to set up accounts for your children. In other words, a payment method is very important if you’re an iDevice owner. But not everyone is comfortable divulging their credit card information online that’s why Apple made it a point to give its users an option to choose not to enter these sensitive information when signing up or using their Apple ID.

In this post, I will walk you through in creating and/or using your Apple ID without entering a payment method. You can do this in your mobile device, Mac or PC. It’s a very straightforward process and easy to do. So, if you’re one of the owners who don’t want to share sensitive billing information online, then continue reading as this article may help you.

Create an Apple ID using a PC

Now, this one’s a bit different simply because it doesn’t make sense if you create an Apple ID using a PC when you already have an iPhone, iPad, iPod or a Mac. But if you really want to create an Apple ID using a PC, then, find a free item in the iTunes Store, try to download it, then follow the prompts to create a new Apple ID.

The prompts would all be the same as above.

I hope that this short tutorial have been able to help you create a new Apple ID without associating a payment method.
