If you have an Android phone or tablet, you get all of your apps through the Google Play Store.  Fortunately, there are more than a million free apps, but sometimes you’ll come across one that costs a few dollars that you’d like to play.  If you’ve never purchased an app before, the process can be a little intimidating, let’s look at how to do it.

First, you need to go to the Google Play Store.  You can go to play.google.com or tap on the icon for the Play Store.


On the left-hand side, tap the menu button and look for My Account.


Choose  Add a payment method

  • Click on Add a payment method and your debit/ credit card or PayPal account. On this phone, you see there’s also the option of choosing billing through my wireless company.



You can also redeem gift cards or promo codes. For credit cards and Paypal, you’ll need to type in the pertinent account details and save it under your profile.

When you purchase a paid app, you can click on “buy.” Then click “continue.”


Then select your payment method


Confirm your purchase and then download.
