Purchase Google Play credit directly from the website

We get it. A busy person like yourself has no time to select an app and then click on the appropriate box to pay for it. And since Google Play credits can now be purchased on the web, why not simply buy some credits in advance to streamline the process when you're out with your phone or tablet, looking for a new game? The credits can be bought in $5, $10, $15, $25 and $50 so you should be able to buy in advance the amount of credits that you will need to keep the games on your mobile device fresh and new.

All you need to do is to go do the full Google Play website and scroll to the bottom. You will find on the footer, an option entitled "Buy Google Play credit". Click on it and it takes you through a fairly easy checkout process. Then, when you're tired and worn out after along hard day, a new game or a premium app is already paid for. And yes, you really aren't saving any time overall, but that's our little secret.

Seems like PA is taking a jab at the process since for some silly reason Google doesn't allow you to gift the credits to anyone else. Seems kind of pointless if you can't gift them to anyone. What's the purpose?

What about buying some credits for your childs? So they have some credit but it´s limited to what you want, and they can´t abuse your credit card. Just a thought.

Would serve a purpose if there would be more payment methods than credit card only to buy those credits, though buying credits isn't avaible at my location yet anyway.
