Apple is now allowing US customers to shop online for products from 20 different international online stores. The program is called ‘Cross Border,’ and is designed to enable easier ‘international gift giving.’ If you live in Chicago and want to send a new iPod to your friend in the Philippines or your cousin in Germany, your task just got much easier.

From the US Apple Store’s Cross Border page, you simply select the online store for the destination country. From there you select the product, input the destination address, and your credit card information. Your credit card—this doesn’t work with debit cards according to Apple—is billed according to current exchange rates for the store’s currency (pesos, euros, etc.) and the product is then shipped to the specified destination. You can even add gift features like engraving for iPods or gift notes and wrapping.
