New account signup is hanging.

New account signup is hanging.

whanau_marama

Hi there.

 

Am trying to set up a new account for my son as we have just upgraded to a family account. Have entered all the information required and clicked signup. After that a wheel spinny thing stays on the screen and nothing happens.
The reCAPTCHA times out and we need to start again after about 5 minutes. Any ideas?

Hi @alibee1

I had the same issue last week. And after long hours I realized the problem was that I:

1. Invited my son to the family plan

2. Tried to set up his account at Spotify.

 

For some reason, if you do it like that it will not work. What you have to do is:

1. Set up the account, making sure the email address you're trying to set up has not been invited to a family plan before

2. Invite to the family plan

 

Hope this helps,

Sylvi

HI! You might want to try creating the account on a different device if possible, also are you sure everything is correct ex email is same in both boxes? Sorry this has happened!

Hi there.

 

Have tried on my desktop, wifes macbook, sons laptop, my phone and still no luck. I'm 100 percent sure the email addresses are the same. Usually it would error out straight away if the emaill addresses were not the same so that won't be it. This is getting frustrating as I'm paying for a family account and can't even sign my family up to it.

Exact the same here...

I guess that if the birth year of your child ist to young then the registration hangs. Annoing is that all further tries to register the same e-mail address with a older birth year hangs also....

Come on guys, we need a solution for that...

Same problem here. Very frustrating. Tried IE, Chrome, PC, Android...nothing.

I have tried different PCs (linux and windows) different browsers (IE, chrome, firefox) and I am getting the same problem. IE From the https://www.spotify.com/us/signup/ page, when I fill out all the details and press sign-up, I get the spinning wheel and nothing happens.

 

Please fix / advise as to next steps.

Hey @whanau_marama,

 

Have you tried to remove the underscore from the username?

Have you tried any other usernames to see if that resovles anything?

Do you have any VPN, adblocker or something you may have changed in your router settings?

 

Let me know as much information as you can and I'll look into finding a solution!

 

Best,

Jordan

I have tried to signup without VPN and AdBlocker without success.

VPN appeared to be not a problem, but a solution. When I tried using VPN everything was successful. My location is Kyiv, Ukraine. I tried VPN for Berlin, Germany.

Hey guys,

 

Sorry to hear you're still having issues

 

Just some quick questions for some more info as this seems to only happen to a few people and not others!

 

  • What device are you using?
  • What version OS is the device running (eg. Windows 7/8/10, IOS 8/9/10, etc.)?
  • What browser are you using?
  • Is your browser updated to the latest version?
  • Do you have an Adblocker installed (active or not)?
  • Are you using a proxy?
  • Are you connected to WiFi or a mobile network?

If you have any other details you feel might help feel free to list it as well!

 

Best,

Jordan

Have tried with Mac (High Sierra) on Chrome / Safari (latest updates), Edge on Win10, Chrome on Android, Safari on iOS, using both Wifi and 4G. All are up to date, no adblocker, no proxy.

 

It's patently not a client-side issue, but I'm guessing you knew that already. My guess would be something IP related.

 

We're paying for this family service but cannot use it. It's not too much to ask to have it resolved....

Hey @alibee1,

 

I'm just going to be blunt, I don't work at Spotify so I have no idea what happens in the back end, I simply volunteer my time to help on the forums, so I have no idea what is causing the issue, that's why I'm getting this information. (To pass along to Spotify)

 

But, thanks for the information, I'll pass it on now for you, could you also provide the specific version of the browsers as well please as this will help in getting a fix out!

 

Best,

Jordan
