A few days ago, we reported that the Play Store was starting to offer a new payment option to users. From Mexico, users can top up their balance at a convenience store, so they don’t need to have a credit card, carrier billing, or any other payment method tied to their account. At I/O, Google officially introduced the feature and explained how it works.
Developers will be able to offer their users a new deferred payment option, allowing them to purchase the app and then pay for it at a convenience store. They will get a payment code on their screen which they will need to show the cashier in order to complete the purchase, and in ten minutes they should get confirmation and then be able to download and start using the app or game. calls “Pending Transactions” and is currently available to users in Mexico and Japan.
You can see the brief moment mentioned in the Google I/O presentation below (queuing at the exact time) and read more about it in the official documentation.
