It's inconvenient to manage multiple music accounts at the same time as you may need to switch back and forth between them when playing different songs. Therefore, it's necessary to merge those different accounts into one, or in other words, to transfer music from one account to the other.

When it comes to Amazon Music and iTunes, it's easy enough as Amazon allows you to enjoy music downloaded from Amazon on iTunes without any limitation. You can add Amazon songs to iTunes directly or move Amazon Music files to iTunes via Amazon Music App. Wondering how? Check with the following instructions to get it done in minutes.

Method 1. Upload Amazon Music Collection to iTunes Library Directly

To access your Amazon Music purchases in iTunes, firstly you need to download Amazon songs to your computer. You can then move the downloaded files from where they're saved on your computer to your iTunes by following the steps as below.

Step 1. Open iTunes app on your Mac or PC.

Step 2. Select "Music" from the main interface of iTunes.

Step 3. Select "File" - "Add File to Library" from the top menu bar.

Step 4. Browse to the file or location where you saved your downloaded Amazon Music tracks. Select the songs you want to add to iTunes library and confirm.

Method 2. Export Downloads from Amazon Music to iTunes via Amazon Music App

With this method, you are required to install Amazon Music app on your computer firstly. It's a desktop application which lets you explore, download and share Amazon Music easily.

Step 1. Open the dropdown menu in the upper right corner of the application window.

Step 2. Select "Preferences" and scroll to the "Export Downloads to" section.

Step 3. Select iTunes to transfer the Amazon Music downloads.

Note: If you're using Mac and don't see the option to export music to iTunes from the Amazon Music app, you should go to "iTunes > Preferences > Advanced" and select the option of "Share iTunes library XML with other applications". Then open Amazon Music app again.

Bonus: Transfer Apple Music Songs from iTunes to Amazon

As it's easy to sync Amazon songs to iTunes, then how about the other way around? Is it the same to transfer iTunes songs to Amazon? If it's for the songs purchased from iTunes Store, yes. But if you are going to transfer Apple Music files from iTunes library to Amazon Music, you might be disappointed.

In fact, Apple Music songs are protected M4P files with DRM technology. However, Amazon Music only supports importing, playing and downloading non-DRM files in MP3 and M4A formats. Therefore, in order to upload Apple Music to Amazon, you have to unlock the DRM limit from the songs completely. Then you need TunesKit DRM Audio Converter.

By using this tool, you can not only convert Apple Music M4P to MP3, but also convert other audios, including iTunes music, audiobooks, Audible books, and non-DRM audios to MP3, AAC, WAV, etc. with ID3 tags preserved.
