and how will external countries pay for their app purchases with a non-us card ?

APP store NOT APPLE store...

I can see that a lot of people have misunderstood the article, they are talking about the APP store (apps for iPhone, iPad, iPod) not APPLE store (hardware and software such as Macs and MBP's) Also in some countries we have only online versions of the Apple store but no physical retail shops.
