Use Spotify without a credit card

Hey,

 

I love Spotify and first I want to buy an unlimited account. There's enough money on my PayPal Account, but I cannot choose the option to pay with my money on account.

 

Sorry, but it's counterproductive to offer no possibility to pay WITHOUT a credit card. Not everyone has a credit card. So, please enable the option to pay with my credit on PayPal.

 

Best wishes from Austria!

Re: Use Spotify without a credit card

In sweden you can buy premium and pay with Klarna mobil, but I believe that using common invoice system is very expensive for Spotify.

 

However, in some countries, Sweden, England and US you can buy gift cards.

Yes, but not in Austria. And why it's expensive, when Spotify using PayPal's service to pay with credit?!

In Finland you can buy gift cards from R-Kioski (Music bundles, Unlimited and Premium) and from TeliaSonera Oyj [Sonera] (Only Premium and even if you do not have Facebook).

But i am from the Atlantis, and now? :D

The most online shops have more payment options than spotify and as an international provider it should be be a standard to offer the most common payment options.

I for myself organized a creditcard now but not all people can do this.

Re: Use Spotify without a credit card

Haha... I read in another post, the credit card is only used for the verification of the country...

now I asked a friend for his CC, he don't need it, it's a debit-card that also should be accepted... but because he don't need it, it is not charged... 
and... WOOHOO... it is NOT accepted by Spotify... I used it in combination with my CHARGED PayPal Account...
so Spotify don't need the CC only for the verification of your location...

what a mess around... they don't want our money... WHAT ELSE?

You need to credit card at least one cent. Spotify try to charging 1 cent and then refund this 1 cent and then your country is verified. You need to transfer to this card for example 5 cnt. Remember, some banks does not transfer money like 5 cent, you need to try. Maybe 15-50 cnt works like a charm.

 

Then, when your country is verified, you can delete credit card details and choose to pay with Paypal.

Hi everyone,
