    Hi, I already have an iTunes store account but the credit card I have is from a foreign bank. I want to subscribe for iTunes Match. But iTunes displays an error message saying that the card cannot be accepted because its not from my country. Is there any way to get the card working with iTunes or are there any other methods that i can follow to pay for the iTunes Match? Thanks.

    You'll need an iTunes gift card most likely. For copyright reasons.

    You have to set-up a new iTunes account in the country your credit card is from or get a credit card from the country your iTunes account is from. Only way.

    Would you be able to give me information about how to get one and how to use it to purchase iTunes match?

    eBay. You'd have to find one that covers the whole amount, then apply it. Still, since you're in another country, I'm not sure iTunes Match would even work.
