How to Use MTN Mobile Money to buy Apps on Google Play Store

Technology continues to be more beneficial to the everyday person when it offers seamless integration.

Here in Ghana, MTN Mobile Money remains one of the biggest payment options. Therefore, whenever the service expands to accommodate more payment options, it feels good.

Since 2018, MTN Mobile Money has integrated with Google Payments so that you can purchase apps and other Google Products and Services via mobile money.

In a country where a lot of individuals do not have a bank account, and with the difficulty of getting credit cards and debit cards to work for online transactions, the push to integrate mobile money with Google Payments on mobile is laudable.


To enjoy the service, you must have your MTN Mobile Money registered SIM in the phone you are registering on, and make sure you are in your preferred Google Account.

Kindly note that you only need to complete this process once and after that, you will be able to buy apps and games from the Play Store as long as you have enough funds in your MTN MoMo account.

For those who can not access the settings in the Google Play Store, just go your android phone’s main Settings, go to Accounts, open Google Settings, choose Account Preferences and add Payment Methods.

It should work just fine if you have your MTN Sim inserted.


It is very easy now to buy your favourite apps or make your App Subscriptions via MTN Mobile Money.

The feature is currently not available to Apple and Windows users (those who are left). Hopefully, it is integrated into the App Store in the future.
