Sort purchased tracks into discrete playlists by name or account ID

This script will examine each track in the entire iTunes library--or a selection of tracks--for items purchased from the iTunes Store (audio, video, and audiobooks) and then sort them by either the purchaser's name or account ID into discrete playlists, eg: "Purchased by Tom Ryan" or "Purchased by tomryan@email.com".

Purchaser information is gleaned by examining the track's local file (purchase info for iTunes Match tracks in the cloud is inaccessible and cloud tracks will be ignored), which, depending on file location and access speed, may take as long a second per track. Just sayin'.

OS X 10.6 or later only. Previous universal version available at the link below in the "Info" section.

Action shot:

Track Down Purchases in action

Sort using the purchaser's name or account ID. Sorting by Name is faster; ascertaining the account ID requires a bit more processing per track. Either way, you'll probably have time to go grab some coffee while the script is working.

Latest version:

  • Fixes hang on some OS X 10.9 systems
