Google makes an exception for India; allows Indians to buy Android apps offline with cash

India has always been a country which prefers to deal in cash. It is also a country where credit cards are not used in a major way. Google has found  a way to address this issue, by allowing Indian consumers to buy using  Google Play prepaid vouchers to purchase digital content on Google Play.

Over the coming weeks, you will find Google Play prepaid vouchers worth INR 500, INR 1000 and INR 1500 at select stores of Vijay Sales and Spice Hotspot in Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Kolkata & Jaipur.

You can simply ask the cashier at the register for a Google Play prepaid voucher. You can pay using cash or any other form of payment accepted by the retail store and receive a redemption code that you can use to purchase digital content on Google Play.

With Google Play, you can buy apps, games, e-books and rent or buy movies, on the device of your choice — be it a computer, Android phone or tablet. All of this entertainment is available across multiple devices — buy an e-book on the web, for example, and it’s instantly available on your phone or tablet through Google Play, and you can start reading right where you left off.

Consumers can access, purchase or rent (in case of movies) this digital content in a variety of ways:

1.  On Android devices: Android phone and tablet users can click on the Google Play store app to shop for e-books, movies, apps and games. Digital content purchased can be “pinned” to the device for offline use without a data connection;
2.   On the web: Users of Chromebooks, PCs, Macs and all other computers can access their digital content online through the web version of Google Play (

You can use Google Play prepaid vouchers to purchase your favorite apps and digital content, as well as in-app goods in your favorite games. You can visit to redeem your vouchers.
