Paying for Premium with foreign country card

kaani1

I moved to Hungary from Finland and changed my country to Hungary in Spotify. Now I'm trying to update my account from Free to Premium but I can not do it because I have a Finnish credit card. What should I do? I can not change my country back to Finland because I have Hungarian IP adress.

In changing the country settings of your Spotify account, you’ll need a payment method with a billing address in the country you’d like to switch to. You read more of this here

Since your card is from Finland, you would need to follow the process on how to change your country settings to match your card. Therefore, you'd still go back to Finland as your country settings once you apply Premium to your account.

My apologies for necroposting, but this seems like a myopic solution.

Ex: I live in Costa Rica, but only temporarily. Here, you need your residency to get a Costa Rican bank account. I don't plan on applying for residency as I'm not going to live here for much longer. In my situation, there is currently not a way to pay for Spotify Premium without using a VPN or some other makeshift solution.

There are a lot of expats in my position. I am aware of the potential for fraud and why Spotify does it this way, but it needs to be reconsidered.
