There’s a lot of great reasons to be with Three, and this is one of them! With Three, you can use your prepay credit or add a charge to your bill to buy apps, music, games and more from the Google Play Store on Android and from the Microsoft Store on your Windows phone.


Here’s how to get setup on Android.

Open the Google Play Store on your Android phone, and choose an app that you’d like to buy that has a cost.


Click the Buy button and Accept to accept the access permissions.


Under the name of the app, you will see a drop down button which you can tap to see the options Payment Methods and Redeem.


Tap Payment Methods and choose Use 3 Billing. The account will be verified to link up your phone number to the Google Play account.


And that’s it! Now you can use your credit in any of the following Google sections: Apps, Games, Movies, Music, Books and Newstand.



Here’s how to get started on the Microsoft Store.

If you’re using a Windows Phone 8.x and Windows 10 Mobile open the Microsoft Store and find an app that you want to purchase.


Tap ‘Add or switch payment methods’ and choose Three Account.


Wait for the account to be verified, and confirm the purchase by click ‘buy’.


There are a few rules:

  • You can’t buy anything over €30, and you can’t use more than €30 credit per month on the Play and Microsoft Stores.
  • You must have an Irish address registered to your Google and Microsoft accounts. You can check or change this here for Google.
  • If you need a refund, you must request this within 15 minutes through the Stores. Three are unable to provide any refunds for these purchases, as they are a third party service.
