Google Play Gift Cards Come To Indonesia

There are many ways to buy content on the Play Store: debit/credit cards, carrier billing, Paypal, and gift cards. The latter is one of the least complicated options since all you have to do is buy a card from the store, enter it into your account, and you're good to go.
