Hi, I would like to buy a finance book from the iTunes book stores but it is only available in the United States. Is there any other way so that we could purchase the book using the existing account?

It is quite impossible to own a credit card in other country in order to buy the book.

Please assists on this matter.

    Nicky, this quesiton keeps coming up, there are a number of us who would like to buy books from other countries in other languages.  There just isn't a way at this time other than to have a credit card account and billing address in another country so you can create an account in the store for that country.

    You are welcome, Nicky...this continues to be an annoyance for many of us that speak more than one language or have lived in other countries.

    When you can't find a book you want in the iBookstore, make sure you look in the other various stores which also provide free ereader apps for Mac devices, such as Kindle, Nook, Kobo, Googlebooks, and Sony.


    Also be aware that things you buy in the iBookstore can normally only be read on an iOS device and not on a Macbook Pro or any other OS X machine.
