Gift card on Android

My daughter is under 13 years old with her own Google Play account. She purchased a Google Play gift card to download the Premium version of Flipaclip. Apparently she can not use the gift card because she has a "Children's Account". She can only use one of my payment methods because she is linked to me through the Google Family Link. I put the gift card onto my account, but it is still not available to her account for In-App Purchases. Is there any way I can purchase the Premium version from my Google account and then send it over to her account???

Hello J.DP

    Unfortunately, as per Google Play policies, your daughter will not be able to use a gift card/store credits that are stored on your account. Until Google Play allows Play Store credit as a family payment method, only way to make a payment from her account is to use other payment methods (bank account, credit card, etc...).
