Although Google Play Store cards can be redeemed in the U.S. and U.K., the ability to redeem them anywhere else has not been set in place by Google. However, there are ways around this. If you want to know how to redeem a Google Play Gift Card outside of the U.S., there are a few simple steps that you need to follow.
Redeeming Your Google Play Gift Card
Step 1: Switch your proxy to US one
Having your Google Play Store redeemed begins by changing your computer’s IP by using VPN. Once you’ve downloaded the program and signed in, you’ll want to choose the US proxy, and bring the switch over to the “On” selection.
Step 2: Access Google Wallet and change your country
Next, visit http://wallet.google.com and access “Preferences” by clicking on the Gear icon at the top right corner. Your home address and other information will now be on display. Change your country to indicate that you’re from the United States, and then construct an artificial U.S. address and phone number in place of what you had before. Make sure the new address you’ve created is properly saved. If you find it difficult to come up with an address to redeem your card, then you should do some research on Google. Find actual addresses, and create one that could pass for the real thing.
You’re also going to need to create a fake U.S. address in the payment section. You’ll next need to put down the information for your new credit card. Save these details, and be sure that the new credit card you’ve entered has been set up as the default card. This is particularly important.
Step 3: Redeem
You’re almost done. Head over to Google Play section. You’ll find an option that will allow you to redeem the Google Play Gift Card in your possession. If you have entered all of the information required of you correctly, then you should be able to have the card redeemed without any problems.
You should be all set. Remember that the primary address you’ve entered cannot be altered or changed, until such time as you’ve exhausted the balance on the card in question.
No one knows for certain if Google is ever going to expand these cards to include people from locales besides the United States and United Kingdom. Nonetheless, by following the simple rules that have been illustrated here, you can enjoy all of the same benefits of these cards as other players can. Redeem your card, and start enjoying everything Google’s play section has to offer.
