How do I change the Google Play country? Reviewed by Members Rating: 19 Vote(s) - 3.16 Average 100 1

Anybody tell me how to change the country preference for Google Play? I have searched high and low but in most of the forums people ask you to go to gmail settings > edit profile and change the country there. But there is no place to change the country in settings! There is a something called place (which can be marked as current) but that has no impact on Google play.

Hi Seve,
I have read this given statement by google site

"We have changed parts of our system that no longer allow our team to change the default country, and we cannot allow end users to change this on their own for legal reasons. "

If you want to see original statement so please go to this http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/apps/UM3nuYUozJ0

Thanks you

Yes, you can change your mobile phone location through MarketEnabler app.

But I have not tested, only read about it.

So, To downloading this app.

Click on following link: http://anadroid.store.aptoide.com/app/market/ch.racic.android.marketenabler/12010601/281644/MarketEnabler

Thanks

Hello I bought my Nexus 10 from UK play store and now in Google Play my default country (and recommended apps and so on) is UK.

My home country is Bulgaria and I want to change default country in Play store to be Bulgaria.

Before to bough Nexus 10 everything was ok (I have other android devices), but now in all my devices UK store is default store.

How can I change this back ?

Ok. I have faced this type of problem but on other device.

You may also try the same thing, what I did on my device and my problem was solved.

Please add a payment method to your google wallet/playstore account with address in the new country and then clear cache and app settings for the Google Play Store app from Settings -> Apps

Now you have to restart the Google Play Store and you should have the market for the new country.

Hopefully your problem will be resolved.

Thanks

I think you can do it with the help of VPN but without cellular connectivity devices like tablets.

By using a VPN to fool Google into thinking your device is in another country. This may only work on devices without cellular connectivity, such as tablets, as Google may use the cellular network your device is on as its location.

I hope this suggestion will help you.

Thanks

Have a nice day

So you've recently moved internationally, but the Google Play Store refuses to let you buy things?

The settings you have to change are at wallet.google.com. Sign in with your account, go to Settings, and change "Home address" to your new address. You might also have to change your phone number, and your default "Billing and delivery address" in the second tab.

Note that this will not let you buy contents from a country you don't live in, since you need a credit card and an IP from that country.
