I notice that purchases from the App Store on Mac are billed as iTunes.

Is there any way to use a different card to charge App purchases on the Mac than you use for music on iTunes?

The reason I ask is that App purchases are almost invariably things for my Mac that relate to business and should therefore be charged to my business account.

Music from iTunes obviously is not and should be charged to a personal account.

I cannot see a way to treat the two types of purchase separately so wondered if anyone else has found one? Of course you could manually enter new card details every time, but that is a bit tiresome in this day and age.

My suggestion would be to open a second iTunes Account for your business and use that for your App Store purchases and just ensure that you are logged in with the correct account for your business purchases.

That will work - although, rather annoyingly, I find I cannot use my existing email address to have more than one account, so I will have to go through the hassle of actually having a whole new email!!

One card and one email per account. One account across all stores. That's just how it works.

Or in this case, works inconveniently!
