    Default Change Country Location in Google Play

    I recently travelled overseas and my phone and tablet switched from the New Zealand Google Play store to the German Google Pay store. However now that I am back home, Google seems to think that I'm still in Germany and won't let me download New Zealand based apps as it is "not available in my location".

    How do I get the Google Play Store to recognise that my phone and tablet are back in New Zealand?

    Did you figure this out? This is driving me insane.

    I moved from Germany to the UK.
    * went to google wallet, deleted any German payment method registered there, cleared my address book and re-created a home address in the UK (to change home address in google wallet click the settings icon on the top right).
    * went to google play, still German.
    * cleared all my cookies and cache (on web). Still German (on my phone too)
    * on my phone, with a UK IP adress, cleared the cache of google play and google play services, and uninstalled all updates, and restarted my phone. Then went to the play store (still german o_o) and bought a cheap game (labelled in Euros). I had to add a UK registered credit card with a UK address.
    * Play store STILL GERMAN.

    How on Earth do I change this? And why is Google making this impossible for us?

    Thanks,
    LaTomate.

    Hi there,

    Just read on another forum that you actually need to purchase something in Google Play with a payment method from the country you would like to see as your default location.

    Then reboot your phone and your Store should have changed back.

    I changed credit card to new country, set to default and then could install app from play when accessed from PC using browser.

    Hi LaTomate,

    Did you figure this out? I have exactly the same problem with Germany.

    I tried everything you tried. Playstore still in German!

    Any advice appreciated!

    Similar problem here, except I'm living in Germany and can't read anything!
