Buying Apple USA products
Apple products are some of the most popular consumer electronics equipment in the world. They also have websites and stores around the world but what happens when an item you want isn’t available in your country yet or is out of your budget with within reach in US dollars? You can certainly go on the Apple USA website and try your luck there but they typically don’t accept international cards, nor do they ship internationally. You could have a friend order and ship for you but not everyone has such a friend plus there are also risks involved with doing so. You could also try using a virtual payment card plus a freight forwarder to get the job done.
The US Unlocked virtual payment card essentially allows you to place an order on a website in the USA that requires a U.S billing address. When you setup your account with US Unlocked, you’ll get something like a credit card with numbers, expiration and CVV as well as an associated billing address. You’ll also be given the option of setting up a Freight Forwarder (the system will often select the best option based on your location):
Once that’s sorted and you’ve set up your merchant-specific card, make sure you’re set on a VPN and away you go to www.apple.com. Check out some of the more popular products:
