How will this help?
This article helps you to retrieve all the purchased applications on BlueStacks. You do not need to repurchase applications already paid for, in order to run them on BlueStacks.
NOTE: To retrieve purchased apps, you must be logged in to Play Store as well as on BlueStacks with the same account which was used to purchase the desired apps.
How to retrieve purchased apps on BlueStacks?
1. Launch BlueStacks and click on the gear icon in the side bar to access the Settings menu.
2. Within the Settings page, go to the Device tab and note down the name of the profile assigned to your BlueStacks under Choose a predefined profile.
3. Now, open an internet browser like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox etc. on your computer outside BlueStacks. Go to the website: https://play.google.com/store
4. Click on Sign-in. Sign-in to play store using the same Google account which you are using on BlueStacks and through which you have purchased the applications in the past. If you are already signed in to your Google account, then please skip this step.
5. Now, in the search bar, search for the purchased application.
6. Select the application from the list and click on Installed.
7. It will ask you to Choose a device on which you want to install the application. Select that device from the list which was mentioned in Step 2. Click on INSTALL. If the device you're looking for is not mentioned in the list, click here.
