    Or can we use paypal.

    id assume just apple accounts, if you used paypal that means apple would have to go into negotiations with them, and that could cost them money

    I was thinking the same thing. You know how easy apple has to make it.

    Well I am only 15 so no credit/debit card.

    I dont have much cash to be buying cards all the time everytime i want an app.

    But i do have lots of money that comes into my paypal every now and then from online graphic design that I do, and I cant get that into cash, only into my bank.

    Not allowed to withdraw from bank

    Well you could use paypal in a way.
    When you create your iTunes account you have the choice to
    get your account setup via a credit card/giftcards/paypal.
    So if you have a paypal account just set it up with iTunes and
    have your iTunes account ready for the app store. I'm pretty sure
    you know this, but some don't.

    Doesn't PayPal have a way to "generate" a credit card kind of thing? Didn't look into it too much. Also, PayPal has a debit card too, right?

    AppStore payment will most likely be the same as the iTunes store payment...AppStore is basically the iTunes store only with Apps, ability to download on EDGE/3G, and a lot more free stuff.
