    Default Do purchases through Cydia have tax?
    So I have a $10 prepaid credit card from a rebate offer and wanted to buy IntelliScreenX which is $9.99. If there's tax on the purchase I won't be able to use it or might need to add another dollar to the card for it to work.

    So people who purchased stuff on Cydia, was there tax on your purchase?

    Also, I noticed that it uses Amazon for purchases. Can you use your Amazon.com gift card balance as payment?

    Well it should be common sense. If something on Cydia costs 9.99 it will be 10 dollars bro. If a theme is 1.00 it will stay 1.00.

    When you buy IntelliScreenX for $9.99 on Cydia, you spend $9.99, so you'll be fine.

    You cannot use an Amazon gift card for Amazon Payments purchases; it only works to buy things on Amazon.com.

    It's not that simple, bro. When I order digital goods from iTunes or Amazon I get charged tax while places like Steam doesn't so I just wanted to make sure Cydia doesn't charge tax.

    If you mean your Amazon.com account, you can't use that money to purchase products on Cydia. Amazon Payments is a separate system.
