Info for Cricut users outside the US

If you're outside of the US here's some links/info that might come in handy.


iPad/iPhone Design Space app

The Design Space iOS app is now available in more countries iTunes store. Australia being one of them! ☺

The Cricut Basics app isn't available in Australia. However as it's a very scaled down version of the Design Space app, that's no loss. :)




Purchasing Digital carts from outside the US/Canada.

Currently only US, Canada and UK are listed as country options at the billing screen.

Here's some info on how international members can purchase the digital carts from Cricut.com.

You will need a US address. You can Google any business address in the US (eg Pizza Hut) and use those details. Or you can use a service such as www.hopshopgo.com. Create a free account there and you will be given a US postal address. If you want to purchase physical products from Cricut you can have your order sent to that address (taking advantage of the free shipping within the US). You then pay them the shipping costs from the US to your home address. Payment is made through PayPal.

1) Set up your Cricut.com Billing address as follows:




  • After you have added your digital cartridge to your shopping basket Click Proceed to Checkout 



  • Select your billing address from the drop down list.
  • Complete your credit card details. Some Australian Debit cards don't work so be sure to have a Credit card available. You can use a prepaid MasterCard (available from most supermarkets) or a Multi Currency Cash Passport. (Available from the Post Office and banks.) Then in the "Name on card" field type in exactly what it says on the card eg: PREPAID MASTERCARD 




  • Click Place Order 

And that's it. Your purchase should go through and you'll receive an email confirmation.



Purchasing images through the iOS app

These images are billed to your iTunes account so the above steps are not necessary.

This page has been a life saver. Only 12 hours ago I purchased my Cricut Explore Air and having it delivered to a US address and then having it forwarded to me. Earlier today, I tried to download the app and it wouldn't let me and I panicked! What a waste of money this was. I tried googling what to do and found your page! Thank you! Now I cant wait to get my hands on my machine! I'm a first time user so loads to learn!
