Share This:

Using iCloud storage is a great way to store your photos, documents, and other important data. It’s easy to set up and use, but it can be confusing when it comes time to purchase additional storage. In this blog post, we’ll walk you through the steps of buying iCloud storage with a credit card.

Before you get started, make sure you have an Apple ID and have added a payment method. You can do this by logging into, selecting ‘Payment Methods’ and then ‘Manage Payment Method’. Once you’ve added your payment information, you’re ready to purchase additional storage for iCloud.

If you’re using an iPhone or iPad, open the Settings app and tap on your name at the top of the screen. Then select ‘iCloud’ followed by ‘Manage Storage or Change Storage Plan’. If you don’t see these options in Settings, scroll down and tap on ‘Upgrade to iCloud+’.

You will then be presented with several different storage options – from 50GB all the way up to 2TB of storage space – so choose the plan that best fits your needs. Once you have selected a plan, follow the onscreen instructions to complete your purchase with a credit card or Apple Gift Card (if applicable).

Keep in mind that if you choose to use an Apple Gift Card instead of a credit card for payment, Apple will consume your Apple ID balance frst before charging your primary card on file. Lastly, make sure that the billing address associated with your payment method is correct as many users find their payments declined due to incorrect address information listed under their Apple ID account!

We hope this guide was helpful in explaining how to buy additional iCloud storage with a credit card!

Consequences of Not Paying iCloud Storage Fee

To prevent any interruption in service, make sure to keep an eye on your available storage space and upgrade before it gets too low.

Apple’s Restrictions on Adding Payment Methods

It’s possible that your card issuer does not support Apple Pay, or that you need to update to the latest version of iOS or iPadOS, watchOS, or macOS. Additionally, make sure you are in a supported country or region and that your device is compatible with Apple Pay. If these steps don’t resolve the issue you may need to contact your card issuer directly for more information.

Reasons Why Apple Is Not Accepting My Visa Credit Card

It’s possible that your Visa credit card hasn’t been approved for online or electronic purchases yet. We recommend contacting your credit card issuer to verify that the card is approved for these types of purchases. If it is, then we advise you to contact our Apple Support advisors at Get Support so they can assist you further in determining why the card wasn’t accepted.
