Will US Google play gift cards work worldwide?

So I downloaded Feature points and I see that the rewards include a 10$ Google play gift card. I'm in South Africa and I use Rands (R) instead of Dollars ($). I was wondering if I could use a Google Play gift card that was American and redeem it to use on my account. I'm not sure if it will work and I'd like to know from you guys. If it won't work, is there any way I can change my store from South African to American? I use a Google Nexus 7 (2012) if it helps.

Hi Stephan, unfortunately to redeem or use a gift card or promotional code, the country in your Google Wallet account must match the country where the gift card or promotional code is offered so no, you won't be able to use gift cards offered in dollars.

good day gents I am a bit late but it is very easy to use Anerican cards. Simply go into you app store settings and change country of origin to what ever countries gift code you have.
