Tap on Account, and you’ll get an option to add a new payment method.
Simply add a US based credit card, debit card, or net banking information.
You may also purchase a US-based Redeem Code for Google Play Store, from e-commerce sites like Amazon.
This is particularly good as not everyone gets access to US-based credit or Debit card. So this works for anyone. But it is worth noting that you can only change your country once per year. So if you change your country to the US, you won’t be able to switch country back again until one year.
Now go to app info for Google Play Store with a 3D Touch and then tap on information icon denoted by i within a rounded circle.
