Method 1. Upload Purchased Amazon Music to iTunes Library Directly

If you buy digital music from Amazon, you can download music from Amazon to store them locally and then import them to another media player like iTunes. Because Amazon sells these songs as open MP3 files without encryption, you can also download and easily add them to your iTunes library for playback or management using a computer. Follow the steps below and access your Amazon Music purchases in iTunes.

Step 1: Firstly open Amazon Music on your computer and select Library and click on "Songs" > "Purchased" option. You will see all the music you own.

Step 2: Next, Click the download icon next to the song or album. As the purchased Amazon Music has been downloaded in MP3 format, you can import the local files to iTunes directly.

Step 3: Simply launch iTunes and navigate to "File" > "Add File to Library" or "Add Folder to Library", then select the downloaded purchased Amazon Music for importing the songs to iTunes. Just a moment, they will be all uploaded to the iTunes library for local backup successfully.

It's easy enough as Amazon allows you to enjoy music purchased from Amazon Music on iTunes without any limitations. You can add Amazon Music to iTunes directly. But for streaming songs on the Amazon Music app, it's a little bit tricky, as we can not directly download Amazon Prime & Unlimited Music as local audio files from the app (because they are encrypted in special formats). That means all these titles can only be accessed and played within the Amazon Music app or web player, and can’t be exported for use on other apps and devices.

But no worries, in the following part, we will share you with an excellent Amazon Music Downloader to help you download songs or playlists from Amazon Music to your computer as local files. After that, you can transfer Amazon playlists to the iTunes library easily.
