How to Refund iTunes, App Store App or In-App Purchase

by Fahad Saleem

If you purchased an app, music, movie, book or TV show on iTunes or app store, and want to get a refund, you will be happy to know that it is perfectly possible under some conditions. The first condition to get a refund for iTunes in-app purchase or any other purchase is that you should be requesting the refund only for a valid reason: that is, the app or movie you purchased is not working the way it was supposed to do, or it is crashing again and again. These malfunctions must be consistent, not periodic or accidental. Apple will do the detailed scrutiny of your claim and if found valid, you will be given back your money. Here’s how to refund in app purchase, app, movie or music purchase on iTunes.
