Please I Need Help by The5DME(m): 9:00pm On Mar 31, 2021
How do I subscribe for apps on Google play? There's an app I need to subscribe to but my card keep getting rejected. I researched the cause and found out that it's about the billing address. I've tried adding my card, changing my country, using a US address, yet still, nothing is working.
How did you guys manage to bypass this?

Maybe the payment method integrated in the app forbids Nigerian.
In such a case, there is nothing you can do except to get a US card.

Go to your bank with a government issued ID card and utility bill (make sure it matches the address used in opening your account to be on the safe side) and ask you want to upgrade your account/activate your card to make purchases from foreign merchants.
And make sure it's VISA card you got.

Or you use Barter, get a virtual dollar card and go crazy, though the rates can literally make you go crazy.

By default it should work but sometimes the person opening the account won't do this even after you tell them several times to make sure your cards work for foreign merchants.

The utility bill is for him to use and ensure that addresses match the account (he still needs to change the address, state and ZIP code on his GPay account).

The ID card is self-explanatory.

Ah GTbank.

See if you can get an account statement by mail.
Use the address there and search for the area ZIP code.

If it doesn't work, then it means your card wasn't activated or you using some special account.

What do you mean by my card not being activated?

Account officers have this annoying habit of not activating your card for international transactions even if you tell them to and bring what they asked you to bring.

Depends on bank but mine was UBA.

First get an account statement. I hear GTbank allows you to do this via mail or their banking app.

Use the address (word for word), look up the ZIP code for the area the address is in.

Goto your Gpay account, edit your details to match the address and city.

Try inputting the details of the card. If it works good.
If it doesn't. Go to your bank and do small display of madness.
