Just a quick bit of info for our readers in Greece, Portugal, and Poland - soon, you'll be able to pick up Google Play gift cards at your friendly neighborhood retailer (well, unless they're jerks, then your unfriendly neighborhood retailer). There's no exact timing information, but the Play support page for gift cards was just updated with those three new nations. Greece and Portugal will be getting the same 15, 25, and 50 Euro denominations as the rest of Europe, while Poland will have gift cards at 50, 75, and 150 Złotych.

  • George Bakos

    I am Greek and I havent seen any "google play gift cards" in my country so far. Just itunes gift cards. I think it is great that Google supports more countries . We had movies, books and now this in the last 9 months.

    • Nasko Hristov

      We in the north hope for at least 1% of this...hope we are next. But nice for you guys. At least in the summer we can taste the google Play...

  • Sewerinius

    Poland!!!!!

    BTW it would be better if there was Złotych or PLN not Zloty. Sorry for my English

    if i could only spend it devices part of play store it would be great ;)

    Google is always a bit late to expand their services in other copuntries but better late than never. +1 for Greece gift cards. Now bring the device play store too and everything will be fine.

    • ShaunTheSheep

      A bit late for what? It takes time to sort this stuff out. Otherwise they'd always do the whole planet on the same day. I'm not sure that Greece is too high up their list; everyone's a bit poor at the moment and it's another niche language to support

        Greek smartphone market had growth despite the recession. http://www.euromonitor.com/mobile-phones-in-greece/report
        Also Greece is one of the countries in the world Microsoft's Windows Phone outsold Apple's iPhone. Android phones are no1 in sells here. Doesn't matter if you are small or big. When there are so many androids around Google also need to support its customers with their services and provide what customers want. If you don't do this as a company some other company will do. At least Google realised that and accelerated their services expansion towards other countries. Like I said better late than never.

    Greetings from Portugal.

  • Nick Nexus

    That's great, Google! Please, bring Google play devices too.

  • nikolas

    A few more Services and devices would be welcome too Google. Your Greek friends.

  • George Kaimakas

    Yeah!!! More paying customers for us developers in Greece

  • Mandeep Singh

    Still not available in india which is a loss for google as mos.t of us dont like to use credit cards
    Having play gift cards could have upped the revnue google could get from india as almost 80% of smartphone users in india use android

  • Marek Przybylski

    would be much better if I could buy nexus phone directly from them in Poland.. but I hope everything will come in time

  • kwiato

    People were ranting about credit card requirement. So I guess it's a option to solve that problem.

    Good to have some Google love.

  • SxperiaS
