  • In the window that opens, click Logout
  • Reconnect to the AppStore and you will see a message telling you that you'll be directed to the store in your country.

Thanks very much for posting this. Other pages were telling me I had to cancel my account first. This was obviously much more straightforward.

if only Apple Support was as good as this, rather than sending you through the some illogical loops of what they consider "customer service" where they do their best to avoid any human interaction ...
