Good News: Indian Users Can Finally Purchase Apps on Google Play Store Even Without A Credit Card

As an Indian, I still remember the pain of being unable to purchase the premium versions of PowerAmp and various other Android apps, movies, books, etc. from the Google Play Store only because I didn’t possess a credit card. Yup, that’s true and you can check it for yourself as even though Google gives you the option of paying through a debit card, it never actually works. I’ve tried debit cards from various Indian banks like SBI, Axis Bank, and ICICI among others, but all in vain as the Play Store only accepts either credit cards or gift coupons. Finally, there is some good news for the Indian users who don’t possess a credit card.

Google has added Net banking as a payment option for purchasing premium apps, movies, books, etc. on the Google Play Store. This feature is being slowly rolled out to different devices and it may still take some time for it to reach your device. Net banking will be the fourth payment option on the Google Play Store after credit cards, debit cards, and gift cards.This step has been taken by Google on account of the fact that there has been a large surge in the number of Indian consumers who are willing to pay for digital contents and apps.

The update is yet to arrive on all the devices, however, you can check for yourself whether your Android device has yet received Net banking as a payment option or not. Just open the Google Play Store and go to the menu. Now go to Accounts and choose Payment Methods and select the option to add a payment option. If you get the option to add Net banking as an option, see if your bank is listed or not. Google has tied up with 38 major Indian banks, so it is highly probable that your bank would be listed. Now just select your bank and now you can pay for your favorite premium content on the  Google Play Store through Net banking. Enjoy and do write to us if you’re facing any problem with this.
