How to Purchase Apps, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 2013 Tablet from Google Play Store in India ?

Are you Looking to buy Apps or Google Nexus 5 or Google Nexus 7 2013 tablet from Google Play Store in India ? Do you own a credit card ? If yes, great but if NO then today we will let you know how you can purchase apps and other device like Nexus 5, Nexus 7 2013 Tablet from Google Play Store in India without owning a credit card. As mentioned on the checkout page “enter credit card or debit card” details, only a few banks debit card are accepted and rest don’t work so what’s the solution ? Let’s see

First of all let me answer a few question of yours…

Which bank’s debit card will be accepted on Google Play Store India ? If you own an ICICI bank debit card, it works like charm 🙂 So we can expect that debit card from banks like Axis, HDFC should also work, thought not tested yet.

Will SBI Or PNB Debit caard works ? Most of the users in India have account in these Govt. banks and their debit cards are not allowed on Google Play Store unfortunately. Even the SBI VCC also don’t work, we tried that.

Will VCC work ? Yes Virtual Credit Cards are working though it is not in Google’s policy we guess to accept VCC but they are working fortunately.

Solution for purchasing Nexus 5 or Nexus 7 2013 Tablet from Google Play Store in India

#1 Get a debit card from ICICI bank ( or Axis, HDFC ) and make your transaction through it. We tried to order Nexus 7 2013 Tablet from Google Play Store in India via ICICI bank debit card it worked 🙂 So you can also do that…

We have successfully placed our order for Google Play Store India using ICICI Debit card.

Purchase Apps, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 2013 Tablet from Google Play Store in India

NOTEYou will not be charged until your order has been shipped, so until your device don’t leave their warehouse you will not be billed.

Make Sure : To keep the exact amount as of device in your “Card applied” over, till it leaves for shipping otherwise transaction will be failed.

Don’t have access to above mentioned bank’s debit card well here is a solution.

#2 Get a Virtual Credit Card. VCC from any above mentioned banks will also work but in case if you don’t have access to any of above mentioned bank’s VCC service then you can get it via “Entropay”. Let us tell you about their service.

Entropay allows you to make a VCC, can be used on all international online transactions. They normally charges 4% of amount what it total topped up in your card, so you can use it to make a purchase from Google Play Store India. It worked for us we tried.

  • Sign up on Entropay.com. It is highly safe and secure, uses all SSL encryption.
  • Make a VCC, load fund on it via using your Visa / MasterCard debit card or via Net Banking.
  • You need to mention the name on card which entropay will use on VCC.
  • You will be given a VCC with a year expiry date and CVV number which can be used on Google Play Store in India.

In this way you can successfully purchase any apps, pay for developer accounts and buy devices from Google Play Store in India.

We hope it will help users out there who want to buy something from Google Play Store in India but cant’t buy it due to limitation on use of cards. If any other bank’s debit card works for your except ICICI, let us know. Drop your comments if we have helped you in any way.
