Google Play supports many different types of payment beyond linking a credit card. The Google store plays with the idea of allowing payment in cash and there are also promo codes and prepaid cards for sale in various stores.
Promotional codes are codes that are not created by Google, but by the developers of an application to distribute as they want and that, after redeeming on Google Play, activate a subscription or integrated purchase. These promo codes are now open to Spanish developers.
Promotional codes for Spain
Google has updated its support page listing the countries where Google Play promo codes are available. Five new countries enter the list: Spain, Colombia, Germany, India and Russia, while for some reason two fall: Argentina and Romania.
This means that developers with a Spanish developer account on Google Play will be able to create promo codes to distribute them as they see fit. For example, to distribute to friends or to give as a prize in a contest.
This change affects developers and not end users, who they could already redeem promotional codes from Spain. These work in a similar way to Google Play gift cards, which have been on sale in Spain for years.
Thus, the list of countries in which developers can create promo codes from Google Play is as of today as follows: Germany, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, South Korea, Denmark, United Arab Emirates, Spain, United States, Finland, Greece , Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Norway, New Zealand, Netherlands, Peru, Poland, Portugal, United Kingdom, Czech Republic, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Taiwan, Turkey and Vietnam.
