    I have just downloaded a App and paid for it with my iTunes account but payment has not been taken from my card so do iTunes take the money from card a few days after downloading the app?

    How does it work with iTunes?

    I generally receive email notification of purchases a few days after the fact. Never checked to see if the card is charged immediately.

    For me I have to purchase a certain amount (normally 10 USD) before my card is charged. However after a certain time frame (around 2 to 3 weeks), if i haven't purchased 10USD worth of whatever, then it charges my card for the price of whatever it is I bought.

    I did buy several things at one time it was around 80USD and it was charged straight away.

    I don't think there is a rhyme or reason to it.

    One more thing I never get the email saying what I bought until my card is charged

    In my experience Apple waits about a week, or until you've racked up more than $10 (aprox) to charge the card; which ever comes first.

    After dealing with Amazon for years, the Apple method has odiferous qualities. At first it was disconcerting to not see the charge for a purchase. That stimulated a few questions, none of which were positive.
