Paid apps not showing in store
« on: December 27, 2012, 06:24:15 PM »
Hello, I just got a Nexus 7 for Christmas (after wanting one for months) and I'm very happy with it! Everything's working great so far except the Play store. I noticed that its not displaying apps you have to purchase. I can download all the free apps fine, but there's no section for paid apps.

I've searched everywhere I can on the device, and Google'd numerous different things and haven't been able to find a solution. It seems to be quite a unique problem.

I don't really know what Google Wallet is so I don't know if this makes a difference? Because I can't seem to find it on my Nexus and when I went on the app page (got the play store link through Google) it said it wasn't available in my country. I'm in the UK.

Thanks!

Open Google Play and tap the downward pointing arrow top right, you will be taken to the installed application screen. Now swipe the screen left to open the All apps screen, here will be all applications installed on this Google account on all devices that have been attached to this account.

Already done this, but it does not solve my problem.

Try clearing the data from Google Play and force stopping the app...

Settings> Apps> All> Google Play Store> Clear data/Force stop.

If that doesn't work you could try removing your Google account and then re-adding it...

Try opening this link and select to open with Play Store and see if it shows up.

It shows up indeed, but it says "This item is not available in your country". As I said in my first post, my country is the United Kingdom.

You should try to boot in safe mode and check if it solves the problem :

Press the Power button on your device during.
Touch & hold the Power off option in the dialog box.
Touch OK in the following dialog to start safe mode.

Try using your device in safe mode to see if the problem persists. If it doesnít, restart your device to get it out of safe mode and uninstall recently installed apps to see if you can pinpoint the one thatís causing the problem.

Safe mode didn't work and I think this problem was always there from the moment I went into the Play store. I downloaded Facebook first.

Sorry?

I've done a little bit of research and discovered Google Wallet is only available in the US, so it makes sense why I can't get the app, but online when I went to wallet.google.com, my Google account is there and the credit card I used to pay for apps on my old android phone is still there. The card is still active.

There seems to be no settings/options in the Play store that allows you to change/choose payment methods and no settings or options ON my Nexus that will allow me to do the same.

Its a weird problem. The Play store works fine, but the paid apps are just not there.

@jackdelamare - What is it you're trying to download?

Google Wallet is only to pay for things direct from your device.

Can you access your GP account:

https://play.google.com/store/account

Can you take a few screenshots and post please.

You have the FREE apps page showing in GP app.

Can you not swipe to another page that shows TOP PAID or TOP GROSSING etc., such as:

No, this is my exact point - there are no paid apps in my play store. You can see on my screenshots how there's no option to swipe to "Top Paid Apps" or anything. They are not in the Play store.
