What is Apple ID Payment

Apple ID is the personal account that you use to access Apple services like the App Store, iTunes Store, iCloud, iMessage, the Apple Online Store, FaceTime, and more. When you change your payment method or billing address, your information also updates everywhere that you use your Apple ID. If you change your payment method, make sure that your account information matches the information on file with your financial institution.

When you set up Family Sharing and turn on purchase sharing, one adult in the family—the family organizer—controls the shared payment method for everyone in the family group. Remember the store availability and features might vary by country or region.

This means depending on your country or region, you might not be able to buy or download certain types of media. The availability and features of certain apps, movies, and more can vary. Also in addition to the App Store, iTunes Store, and Apple Books, the availability of other Apple services might vary by country or region.
