Great news Nigerian android users!
Following the latest Google Play Store updates, the Nigeria currency (Naira) has been added as a payment currency for Nigerian android users, which means that you can now conveniently pay for apps or other items on play store in Naira using Nigeria issued cards such as ATM cards.
Google Play store will normally update itself once there are new updates on the app if you have internet connection on you android device. So if you android phone has been connected to the internet for some time now, you should be able to see this update by now.
I think this is a welcomed development for Nigerian android users and developers alike. It means that Nigerian android developers can now develop paid app specifically for Nigerians with confidence that any Nigerian that wants to buy the app can conveniently pay for the app, that is of course if the app is specifically targeting Nigerians.
How to pay for apps in Naira on play store
Select the app you want to buy on Play Store.
Click on the price of the app you want to buy and click continue.
Select add Credit or Debit Card.
Enter your card details on the next page and click save and you are good to go.
Once you card details are saved, you can expressly pay for apps in your next purchase, (that is, you don’t need to enter your card details again in your next purchase).
Also note that all your purchased apps are synchronized across all you android devices. Which means you don’t have to pay for them again if you want to download them again on another android device so long as you are logged in into play store with the same details as on the device you used to purchase the app.
