How do I buy apps for my Android Nexus 7?

How Do I Buy Things On The Play Store Or Android Market?
Hi guys. Im planning on getting a Nexus 7. And Like, how do you buy things on the Android Market Or Play Store or what ever its called? I heard that they just charge it to your bill, but, the Nexus 7 is a WiFi Tablet last time I remembered, Not a Contract.( Not trying to be rude ._. ) So like how would I be able to buy things? This will be my first time owning an Android Tablet, any Android Device for that matter, but I would really love to give it a try. Thanks Guys

Good choice!

The Android Market is now called Google Play and the app is preinstalled in all Androids.

The very first thing is to have a Google account. Just by opening a Gmail account you automatically have one.

Then get a Google Wallet account by simply associating it to your Google account.

You also need a payment method, a credit card. You can also use, for instance, a gift card purchased anywhere. Make sure you register your credit card at the website in back of the card so you can use it anywhere.

A new way to pay is a Google Play Gift Card:

If you buy the Nexus 7 at the Play Store online, you get $25 credit to spend:

A great many apps are free.

Amazon also has an Android app Market:

Every day they offer a free paid app, mostly games.

Good luck!
