How To Use Nigerian Debit Card on Google Playstore

Till today, some still find it difficult to pay for Apps using their Credit/Debit card on Google Playstore. Today, I'll be dropping some possible steps to pay for apps using your ATM card on Google Playstore. Kindly follow me along.

How To Use Nigerian Debit card on Google Playstore

Google’s policy document states that “some forms of payment can’t be used if the country does not match the country listed for your account. For example, a Google Play balance in U.S.D can’t be used if your home country is not in the U.S. If you think this might be your issue, check or change your home country in Google Payments to see if that solves the problem.”

In other words, if your Google Play balance is listed in USD, you need to switch your home country to U.S. even though you are based in Nigeria. As such, you will need a US address and phone number.

How To Change Your Home Country In Google Playstore

Below is how you can change your Playstore Home country to US, so you can be able to use Nigerian ATM card on Google playstore.

=> Login to Google Payments Here with the email you use for Google Play
=> Click on Settings
=> Update the Home address field with your US address and phone number
and then Save

That’s it. Note that your card billing address must remain a Nigerian address. The only thing you need to change is your Home country/location.

If following the above steps and still yet, it doesn't work, then you need a foreign payment method. The Nigerian financial services industry is probably screwing you up with one of their crazy policies.
