Due to region restrictions, you cannot redeem Google Wallet code from outside the US. This is because Google Play Gift Cards are regionalized and can only be redeemed from a specific country’s Play Store. However, there is a way you can still redeem it. Here’s how to Redeem Google Play Gift Card Outside the US.
Redeem Google Play Gift Card Outside the US
The Gift Card option has been out for quite a while now, but you still can’t redeem it in your country. This is because your region’s currency is not in USD. When you redeem the code, the currency added to your account is in US Dollars. If you try to redeem it on an unsupported region, you will only get an error saying “This code cannot be redeemed from your country.”
