Adding Money to Your Google Play Balance

To add more credits to your Google Play Balance, simply visit a convenience store to add cash to your account. However, you will need to check if this is available in your country. Also, there might be additional fees when you add money to your account.

Another way to add money to your account is by redeeming more gift cards or digital codes. Keep in mind though that users are not allowed to share content on Google. If you have a different account for your mobile and tablet, you will need to purchase the digital content separately.

If you purchased an app using the wrong account, consider contacting the app's developer as they might be able to refund you the amount.
