Cant use "Bill to my account" in Google Play store

Member

Since getting my new phone (Galaxy S8), I'm now no longer able make purchases in the Google Play store with that option to "Bill to my Verizon Wireless Account". It shows up in under Payment Methods - twice in fact, but both are disabled and say "Not Eligible" in red.

How can I get this enabled again?

timofcourse, Having an alternate payment option for your purchases is great. We'll be happy to review your options. Is your account past due or has been past due in the last six months?

Timofcourse, congrats on your new phone. I know the excitement that comes with getting a new phone and wanting to personalize it. There are a few reasons that you would experience the issue of not being able to bill to the account right now. If you recently removed a purchase or text messaging block, or made a device change, Carrier Billing is unavailable for up to 14 days. In order for carrier billing to be updated, Google performs eligibility checks every 14 days. Once those 14 days are up, you will be able to bill to the account again. Were there any other questions or concerns that we could assist you with?

I managed to get this figured out. I believe this actually occured not because of the new phone, but because I also changed my account plan at the same time. The reason I had two instances was because I've changed my plan twice since I've been a vzw customer.

Anyway, to resolve it, I had to visit https://payments.google.com/payments/u/0/home#paymentMethods and remove the "Verizon wireless" payment methods. At that point, I went back into the Google Play app > account > payment methods, and under "add a payment method", was able to add "Bill to my Verizon Wireless Account".

Now all works as it should. Hopefully this helps if anyone else runs into this issue.

Try deleting the payment method then clear the cache on the Google play services and Google pay. Wait a while (5 hours for me) then add it as a payment method again. This worked for me.

I know this is an older message.. however I had the same problem after I received a new device.  This was the resolution!  Thank you for explaining the fix!
