I'd like to buy a 3-month premium subscription for a friend, but the website's restrictions are making it extremely difficult! I'll do my best to explain things simply:
We both live in Germany right now (I'm here short-term). My only possible methods of payment are UK Paypal, and a UK Visa card.
If I have my country set to 'Deutschland' I can't pay, because "the country selected needs to be the same as where your payment card or PayPal account is registered."
So I switch the country to ''UK'. Here I notice that the UK and German versions of the e-gift card page talk about different conditions for code redemption:
UK: Spotify Premium codes can only be redeemed by recipients in the same country as the country you bought the e-card in.
Germany: Spotify Premium Codes können nur von Empfängern in Andorra, Belgien, Deutschland, Dänemark, Estonia, Finnland, Frankreich, Großbritannien, Hong Kong, Iceland, Irland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxemburg, Mexico, Monaco, Niederlande, Norwegen, Poland, Portugal, Schweden, Schweiz, Singapore, Spanien, Österreich eingelöst werden (redeemable all over the world)
As I said, my friend lives in Germany - apparently he wouldn't be able to redeem the code. Why the difference in the conditions?
I want to give Spotify my money, but I really don't know how.
Please help! Thanks a lot,
