Change Google Play Store Country via Google Wallet
Did you move to another country? The chances are that Google Play no longer allows you to purchase anything. If this is you, rest easy! Modifying some settings via the Google Wallet fixes the problem quite quickly.
The settings to change are at wallet.google.com. Sign in with your account, go to Settings. Once there, change "Home address" to your new address. Also, change your phone number and your default "Billing and delivery address" in the second tab.
At the same time, please note that you cannot purchase contents from a country in which you do not reside. That is to say; the above method only works if you relocated to any given country. Furthermore, you need an IP address and a credit card issued in said country. In light of this misfortune, we discuss the use of VPNs & Google Play Store.
Change Play Store Country Via VPN
This method requires a VPN (Virtual Private Network) app. Popular choices are Hola VPN, HotSpot Shield, and Zenmate. VPN applications modify the IP address of your device. This approach works for some. However, other users claim that it no longer works.
The steps are pretty straightforward. Open the VPN application and set the location you want. Most users choose to switch to the United States IP addresses. Once completed, go to Settings, Apps and then Google Play Store. Tap clear data. Finally, open the Google Play Store and accept the terms and conditions. Are you now able to download the app or game you want? If not, try the next method which builds on this one.
In addition to the requirements above, you need another Android smartphone. Furthermore, connect both smartphones to the same Google Account. Complete all the steps above. Moreover, perform the following steps on the second device. Clear the cache and data of Google Play Store on the second Android Phone. Open Google Play Store. No VPN required on the second smartphone. Now, accept the terms and rules. It then takes you to USA’s Google Play Store. Finally, on the mobile phone with the VPN, disconnect the VPN and open the Play Store.
Location Spoofing, VPN & Google Play Store
This step is fast and easy. You already know how to set up the VPN component, right? Go ahead and do so. Only this time, you download an extra app. There are many location spoofer applications on the Play Store. Download the one with which you feel comfortable.
Firstly, activate the VPN. Then, go to an IP location service. Note the location that it returns. Open the GPS Spoofer application and try to spoof this location. Clear the data and cache for the Play Store app and open it. Accept the terms and conditions. Voila! Did it work?
