Google Launches Play Store Gift Cards In France & Germany


Google has just launched its Google Play gifts cards in Germany and France as it expands availability in Europe. The only supported regions previously were the United States and the United Kingdom.

France and Germany will have gift cards in €5, €25, and €50, denominations with the account limit remaining at 2000, regardless of the currency you use.


The process to redeem a gift card remains the same as it is in the U.S. and the U.K., all you have to do is visit Google Play, sign into your account, visit the redeem section and put in the code.

You can redeem your Google Play gift card in three ways:

  1. At Scratch to reveal the redemption code on the back of the gift card, and enter that code at – funds will automatically be applied to your Google Play balance.
  2. During the purchase flow: After choosing the digital content you want to buy, during the purchase flow, under Choose a payment method, select Redeem a Google Play Gift Card, and enter the redemption code found under the scratch-off section of your gift card.
  3. Using the Redeem option on the Google Play Store app on your device: Launch the Google Play Store app, then tap Menu > Redeem, and enter the redemption code from the back of the gift card.

This expansion also enables people based in these countries to add Google Play credit to their accounts via the Play Store, using a credit/debit card.

So, now that’s four countries down. Where too next?
