Good News for Nigerians as Google Approves Naira Payment on Play Store

The world’s tech giant, Google, on Wednesday, July 26, announced that Nigerians can now make purchases on its Play Store with a naira card.

This followed a new partnership with Verve, Africa’s most prominent domestic card scheme.

In a statement on Wednesday, Google said the new development was made possible due to its partnership with Verve, a domestic card scheme.

Part of the statement read:

“From today, Nigerians now have the opportunity to use their Verve cards to make purchases on the Google Play Store. This will help strengthen the digital ecosystem in Nigeria.

“Under this new arrangement, Google will now process Verve transactions within Nigeria.

“These transactions will be undertaken in Nigerian Naira and treated as local transactions by the country’s banking institutions.

“As a result, any Nigerian with an Android device and a Verve card now has a streamlined method for making purchases on the Google Play Store.

“Users can now add their Verve Cards to their Google Play Account and pay in Naira, without stress.”
