Things You Should Know Before Buying Android Apps

Although it is easy to buy Android’s Google Play Store applications, you should consider a few things to avoid any unpleasant surprises. So, read the following points before you buy an Android app.

  • You can buy games and applications with PayPal in the following countries only: Spain, USA, Mexico, Germany, France, Belgium, Finland, Australia, Austria, Ireland, Greece, Canada, Italy, the Philippines, Singapore, Russia, Turkey, Portugal, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland.
  • You will have only 15 minutes after you buy the app to return it and request a full refund. Unfortunately, you cannot purchase and return a game or application more than once.
