[How-To] Buy from Google Play Store without using/having Credit Card

apps from google play

Android in India is growing very quickly and currently has a market share of more than 50% in India's smartphone market thanks to Samsung GALAXY series and cheap android phones by Indian manufacturers. As we all now the biggest advantage of Android mobiles is, its huge app support as we can download thousands of apps from GOOGLE'S PLAY STORE which has more than 5,00,000 apps.
Google Play Store has both types of apps that is free apps and paid apps, you can easily download free apps from the Play Store without any problem and if you want to purchase apps from the Play Store, you need to have a credit card as services like Direct Billing and Bank is not currently available in India and only credit cards (and Debit cards of international banks) are supported for buying apps from the Play Store but what if you don't have a credit card as we all know that credit card penetration in India is very low, so how to purchase Android apps  from Play Store in India without credit card.

In this post I will tell you a method through which you can purchase android apps from Play Store in India without credit card.

  By creating Virtual Credit Card  
The only legal way to buy paid apps from Play Store other than credit card is by creating Virtual Credit Card. Virtual Credit Card is an artificial credit card which acts similarly like any ordinary credit card and you can use it for online shopping. But in virtual credit card you have to transfer the amount first just like debit cards.

There are two trusted ways of creating Virtual Credit Card -

sbi virtual credit card

a. Create Virtual Credit Card from bank - Many banks are having a service of creating a virtual credit card for online shopping. STATE BANK OF INDIA and HDFC BANK are two banks which I have used for creating Virtual Credit Card especially HDFC BANK's NetSafe service is awesome and just perfect for any online shopper. Amount charged for creating virtual credit card is very minimum.

entropay virtual credit card

b. Create Virtual Credit Card from Entropay - If your bank doesn't give the service of creating virtual credit cards then you can use ENTROPAY for purchasing apps from the Play Store. Entropay is an online service which I strongly recommend for creating virtual credit cards, as it is completely safe and secure. All your information is protected by encryption. Creating virtual credit card through is very easy you just need to fill up your details and your virtual credit card is ready in minutes, now transfer your fund to virtual credit card and start shopping. EntroPay is used worldwide and processes thousands of transactions daily. For using EntroPay you need to pay certain charges.

Earlier Google only sells android apps through its Play Store in India but now Google has start selling books and movies also, so this Virtual Credit Card method work perfectly with them also means you can buy android apps, ebooks and movies without credit card using Virtual Credit Cards.

I hope this post is helpful for you. Do share your comments below.

    Hello i am from india. I use entropay to buy apps from google play, it works well. But entropay charge 4.95% of total amount while funding to their account. Is there any other online credit/debit card service which dont charge for funding ?

    also does sbi bank virtual card works with google play ?

    heyy shivam bro..want to correct you..its 'SBI virtual card' not 'SBI virtual credit card'..SBI virtual card acts as virtual debit card hence not accepted by playstore..didnt try entropay yet..!!
