Why can't I buy with a store credit without adding a credit card?

So, for some reason I got a $14 CAD store credit. I can't use it, because for some reason when I use my Amex card to pay, the prices are always in US dollars. So I deleted the Amex card and now the prices are in Canadian Dollars. But when I go to buy an app which is less than $14, it says I have to add a credit card to buy the app even though the store credit is more than the cost of the app.

Is there anything that can be done about this?

That's just the way they do it.
Add a payment method, buy your app, then remove the payment method.

You don't get it.

If I add my Canadian Amex card, the prices switch to US dollars and, lo, I can no longer use the store credit because it's in Canadian dollars. Even though I'm in Canada using a Canadian credit card and the price of the thing I want to buy is less than the store credit.

Do you have Paypal? That would fix the problem.
You could also open a support ticket. I was given a store credit in US dollars once, and I am in Australia. They fixed it via support.
