jumanji2 - If you update your payment details with a card registered in the Netherlands you won't be charged. Only your account settings will be updated. 

 

However, if you're connected via an IP registered in the Netherlands you shouldn't have any trouble:  https://www.spotify.com/account/profile/

 

ritajacinto - I'm afraid we're not currently available in Portugal. 

 

You can upgrade to Unlmited or Premium the next time you're in a supported country like the UK. You can then travel with your Spotify without any trouble.

Hey! Welcome to the community 🙂 

 

Can you download the client by clicking here?.

If you are still having issues, you could try using a spanish proxy service to trick the system into thinking you are in spain.

Hey @Ruby15,

 

Unfortunately, Spotify hasn't launched in India yet, so you won't be able to use the service there until it's launched.

 

More info here.

Hi FlashBaxx - What step in the process is giving you trouble? Have you tried using a different internet browser?

Hey,

 

It started when my little brother changed it to a different country, and from then i cannot change it back. I tried other browsers like Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer (which sucks :P). Any other suggestions? 😞

Hey! 🙂 

 

Are you a free user or a premium/unlimited subscriber? 

You can only change you country based on your current IP address geolocation (unless you are a subscriber, then you payment details and country must match). If you visit http://www.checkip.org/ in your browser, does it detect your IP address is in the UK or elsewhere?

i have the exact same problem- my account was created in the UK but now I am living in the Netherlands and cannot change my country on my profile.

Because of this, I now cant listen to anything because it says that my country and my location do not match. Help please?

I've got almost the same problem. I can't change my country back to Finland. It just says that another account is already registered with this email address. Can you please help me?

so does this mean I have to travel to a country (Spain etc.) where spottify is supported to get it installed on my lappy? I'm currently residing in Portugal and was forced to buy a new computer coz the old one died and it seems there's no other way to get it installed. or will your software somehow detect that this laptop is of portugese origin and won't work in any case? this is most frustrating to say the least as I am currently paying for the product (premium). It's gonna be a pretty expensive software installation if I have to travel to another country!!! luckily Spain is not very far away. ok, tudo bem, awaiting for response, good day.
