Will iTunes match work with my iPod shuffle?

iPad (3rd gen) Wi-Fi, iOS 6.1, Never used IPod shuffle 512 MB

    Not directly, no, since the Shuffle does not have any ability to connect to the Internet. You'll have to get the tracks via iTunes and then sync them to the Shuffle.

    Thanks for answering my question.  I am a new Ipad user and recently found my new iPod shuffle (LOL) lost in a move, seven years ago...  I would like to share some music from iPad iTunes to the never used shuffle, without losing it from my iTunes. Is there an online download for iPod set-up? My iPad is the only working PC, so I cannot use the set-up CD.

    Would an iMatch account or iCloud help with this?  Any help is most appreciated!

    No, sorry, an iTunes Match or iCloud account will not help since, again, the iPod shuffle has no way of directly connecting to the Internet, nor can you connect an iPod shuffle directly to an iPad. The only way to set up and sync to an iPod shuffle is via iTunes on a computer.
