Can I use my itunes account to gift an app? Or just credit card?

Hi guys, so I gifted two games to my bro yesterday, thinking it would come out of my account cash...turns out its charged to my card... that was my bad, I thought it woudnt be, but I can see why it is set up like that..

quesiton is however, can I somehow use my account cash or no?

Thanks!

Can't gift app/game using iTunes credit. Only credit card, you CC will be charged with any purchases you gift to someone.

Nope.

Gifted apps come out of your credit card / PayPal account.

There is an indirect way to turn iTunes funds into PayPal monies, I'll PM you details.
