    Payment methode? afaik there is only CC ^^

    • Eric

      Or carrier billing. It adds your app purchases to your end of the month bill.

  • tehsusenoh

    Well, I said no because I already had a Visa gift card in there.

    • http://www.youtube.com/fuzekimir kimir

      I already had one too. add that option to the polls

    • http://www.ozarkwoodworker.com Matt Robertson

      I already had one too so I'm just not going to answer the poll. The last poll should have broken down the 1-10 section on app downloads as well to be statistically significant.

      • Randy

        If you already had one, then your answer is no, you didn't add one during the promotion.

  • mes215

    This result is probably skewed as most of your readers likely already had a CC on file to purchase apps.

  • http://www.google.com/profiles/MetalMessiah78 MetalMessiah78

    I voted yes, but I actually just changed the card that I had on file to a different one. I had paid off the one I had on file and didn't want to charge anything on it anymore.

  • Scott

    I only have one credit card, and it was already on there. I answered "no", but I don't think that was in the spirit of the question.

  • Deltaechoe

    I buy apps every now and then so this promo was just butter for me. I already had my card on my account.

  • CountRock

    I had to add another CC cause the 1st one got blocked after around 10 app purchases. The customer care said auto blocked cause of excessive transactions with a single vendor!

    • http://www.facebook.com/tfrederick74656 Tyler Frederick

      I feel your pain...after the first thirty transactions my CC company locked my card for the same reason!

      • Deltaechoe

        Tell your bank to unblock, its your account, your money and you authorized those transactions.

  • Vaibhav Gera

    Add the option already added! I had my CC already added coz am a domain as well as extra storage customer.

  • Ahmad

    I already had a Credit Card on my account. I answered no, but just like scott I don't think that was in the spirit of the question.

  • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com Cody

    This does seem like the wrong crowd to poll, there's probably an abnormally high number of people with accounts set up. I had an account/payment method in place probably a year before the G1 even came out.

    There definitely needs to be an option for 'Already had an account/payment method'. I answered No, but there's a pretty big difference between those who already had accounts and those who still haven't created one.

  • http://pctonic.net Ashutosh

    Yep, I did add my card, and now I'm trying hard not to buy all the $0.99 apps out there!

    • Eric

      This is what google wanted. Suddenly, the barrier to buying apps is so much smaller for a lot of people.

      I buy a ton of apps already anyway.

  • https://steamcommunity.com/id/m-p-3 m-p{3}

    Already had my CC registered in Google Wallet, so no.

  • LadyDi

    I billed it to my phone's bill since they were so cheap. Probably not one did that but me.

  • hoan

    I just added the payment to my cell bill =P

  • Thierry

    The answer "no" needs to be refined:
    No, I already had one
    No, I don't want to add any means of payment to my account

  • Dion

    I added my credit card to it, which I hadn't had on there before cause I never bought anything through the market.
    HOWEVER, Google's billing was messed up on my account throughout the entire promotion and no matter how many e-mails I sent, I wasn't able to get it resolved til after the promotion and they will not respond to my requests to get the 10cent deals now.
    My faith in Google has fallen. Disaster!

    • Eric

      Mistakes happen, and it's not something you can expect of them to discount somebody else's merchandise outside of the time they were allowed too.

  • http://royblumenthal.com Roy Blumenthal

    This poll response shows that roughly a third of the followers of Android Police now have a payment method on Android Market where they had none before. Which basically means that Google's marketing team are spraying champagne on each other. That promo has cracked Android into the bigtime.

  • tekrhino

    No, but after a few purchases I discovered it was being billed to my TMO account so I switched it to the CC I had on file with THE GOOGSTER!

  • engineerga

    Yes, I had never bought an app before.I only used free ones. I added a ShopSafe visa with a $15 cap so anyone who uses my Xoom (3-year-old daughter) can't buy a bunch of apps.

    I bought four of the kid apps and then splurged on $9.99 for Galaxy on Fire 2 THD for myself. I wouldn't have bought it if I didn't already have that card set up.

  • davetheAndroid

    Add more options. You ask on a pro Android website, of course most of us have already bought from the store in some fashion.

    I said No because I'm smart enough to have a current method on there.

  • Eric

    Needs a Yes, No and I don't have one in there, or No because I already had one in there.

  • ereptor

    I did, and I think that was the main reason of Google for doing this promo. I mean I wanted to add my card to my account, but I never really had time/energy for it. With this, they pushed me over the edge, and now I'm seriously considering GTA3 for buying. Actually I would have already bought it if my phone could handle it, but anyways, cunning move Big G!

  • lamdroid

    first time buying apps after 2yrs of android. a bit unsettling how easy it is to buy off the market. they should implemnt a pin verification for each purchase

    • TKL

      That I strongly agree with. I am thinking of removing my card from my market account. I don't normally buy apps through it, only bought 3 apps from the promotion anyway. I always prefer the donate option.

  • Evan

    I already had a Visa payment method. But due to transaction issues when I was purchasing the 10c apps, I decided to add my Amex and Mastercard (after google suggested it)... didn't help though, a lot of my transactions didn't get processed properly. I'm from Australia, perhaps that has something to do with it.

  • Patryk

    i bought my first app in the 10 billion promo, which was swiftkey :)

  • johnh

    it would have been smarter to make a third option saying 'already on file'. the poll is useless now since we dont know who already had one of file.

  • paul

    I started a thread on xda about the carrier branded market and payment method options. might be interesting to cover this topic on android police http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1352845

  • AndroidFan

    Am I the only one who actually added a CC during these transactions? Before, I paid all my apps through my carrier billing. But when purchasing these 10 cents apps through the Market store on the web on the PC, I had to add a CC in order to purchase these apps.

  • Saravanan

    I told yes, because my debit card never accepted in google checkout as in my country debit card mostly not supported in the internet. But unfortunately i tried at this time and it worked and i also brought some games after that promotion such as GTA 3, Riptide etc.,

  • Pawnty
