My Question or Issue

 

Before April(?) I could use Spotify in Computer that means Microsoft application, Mac OS version. After April, I couldn't use it at all.  So, I need to pay for it. That is, I tried to purchase Premium, It always failed. I cant buy using Paypal because I am under 18. so I decided to purchase with my check card -> Fail. Tried with my parent's card HYUNDAI CARD. -> FAIL. Plz remove region lock, I just want to use Spotify.

Rightnow Spotify is not supported in Korea. You can see in the country list, there's none of "Korea" or "South Korea". If you pay with the card issued at Korea (like Hanabank, Woori, etc), It won't accept.

So, if you really want to use Spotify premium at Korea, pay with bank card issued at other country which Spotify supports like USA, England, Vietnam, .... Otherwise, just use the free version (like me).

Hope it help 🙂

You're mentioning that these payment methods fail. Are there any error messages being shown? If so, please send screenshots of them.
