If your gift card does not work, there are a few reasons for it. Do not use hyphens or spaces when entering your code. If this does not help, go to the place where you bought the card and check if the card has been activated. All gift cards must be activated or can not be used. If you can not reach the store, please contact Google Play Customer Support.
In addition, your card must be redeemed in the country where it was purchased. If a friend has sent you a card overseas, this will not work unless you have purchased one specifically for your country. The back of the map shows the country.
You can change your country in your Google Pay account by creating a new payment profile. To make the change, go to the Google Pay website and click on
Settings > Country and then on the Edit button (it looks like a pen). Click Create a new profile and follow the instructions on the screen. Be sure to select the country of your map as your country in the options. Then redeem your gift card and use this profile to make purchases until your card balance is used up.
