Does Google Charge for Currency?

Google will, if possible, charge you in the currency of your home country, as per the home address on your Google account.

If Google can’t charge you in the currency of your home country, it will charge you in a different one. If you live outside of the United States, you will likely be charged in U.S. dollars.

However, before your transaction is completed, you will have a chance to see the currency Google will charge you in.

Additionally, the currency you’ll be charged in can change according to the Google service you are using to make a purchase. Therefore, it may not always be in your home country’s currency.
