Google Play is a wonderful place where you can find millions of free and paid apps, games, videos, music, books and many other digital contents. You can easily download things from Google Play using your mobile data or Wi-Fi connection.
Furthermore, if you want to purchase any premium content on Google Play, then the payment method linked to your Google account will be used to make the purchase. However, if you have set up a monthly spending limit for your Google Play account, then you need to remove that spending limit in order to make a purchase from Google Play.
You can remove your Google Play spending limit:
- On a computer, go to play.google.com/store.
- On the left, click Account.
- Under “Payment methods“, click Edit payment methods.
- Next to the payment method you’d like to use without a limit, click Remove limit.
- Follow the onscreen instructions to confirm.
If you have never set a spending limit for your Google Play account but still getting a spending limit error message when trying to make a purchase from the store, then it could be because of your credit card company.
Your credit card company may have placed a monthly or weekly spending limit for online payments. In this case, you should contact them and ask them to remove the spending limit for your credit card.
How to Change Google Play Purchase Limit
You can change your Google Play spending limit at any time. The change will take effect immediately and you’ll see your new spending limit within a few hours.
Note: If you’re using parental controls, your spending limit may be controlled by the adult who set up parental controls for you. Contact them to request a change.
