I purchased a few apps a few years ago, and my credit card expired a long time ago. So, if I close my payment profile on Google Play, will I still be able to install the apps I purchased?

    Would just removing the card from your profile be satisfactory as opposed to closing the entire profile?

It appears you are confusing payment method with payment profile

When you close this profile, the service(s) below will be canceled:

  • Google Play Apps

  • YouTube

  • Google Play Movies


I have had an issue with changing the Google Play country and they recommended to delete the past payment profiles. I have enquired about the past purchases and they said (twice) that I will not lose them.
