Yeah, but doesn't this line means that at the minimum the country listed as shipping to has to be the same issuing country of the CC used?

Also, at this time, the country of your credit card must match the the country to which you're shipping.
Your example only gives a US shipping address, which doesn't match CC used. How to work around that with the steps you've listed so far?

This never hampered me from purchasing music and movies on US Play Store, why should this block for now, said that is the same statement which rules both Music and Devices store?

However, you may be right, and on that case, we'll have another strategy hiring some service to buy it for you, as shipto, myusa, sq-liquidations (the best one for me), and you'll have to add about 10% more to final price.

This thread confuses me. I'm not in the US. I'm in Canada. I can buy apps from the play store just fine with my CDN CC. The Nexus 4 is listed in Canadian prices for me when I look it up on the Play Store ($359 CDN for 16GB). Are you saying that despite all that, I still won't be able to buy the Nexus 4?

Hi,
I am from Czech Republic and my friend is going to travel to USA after a few days. Is there any way, he can buy me NEXUS 4 even he doesn't have US credit card and his card isn't registrated to US address?

thanks

There is Google Store for Devices in Canada, so you will have no problems with purchasing Nexus 4.

I think it will only be sold online, even if you'll be at US.

cpaixao,

I can't figure out if your method works for devices or multimedia only? Can someone confirm?

I live in Croatia and have friend visiting Atlanta in early December. I'm trying to figure out if it is possible to make order from Croatia and have it shipped to his hotel address in Atlanta. Credit card is also issued in Croatia.
