Spotify not working abroad

Spotify not working abroad

I installed spotify on my Mac and I can't get it to work... it says "your country does not match the one set in your profile. To continue use, upddate your profile or upgrade your spotify accound for unlimited travel."   I'm happy to pay for the unlimited travel option as I'm usually away from US but I can't even pay as it says my Zip-code is incorrect...

 

Another thing is I'm having error 408 on my iPhone and I have no idea what that means...

Hi there!

Welcome to the Community. You'll only be able to use your Spotify outside of the country in your account for 14 days. Any longer, and you'll get that error 408.

In order to pay for your Spotify, you'll need to pay with a US card. Is this something you can sort out?

Hiya Sam!

 

Quick question, as a long time Swedish subscriber to Spotify premium I've never noticed problems with leaving the country for a couple of weeks. The thing is I might go to Canada for an  internhip and I'm wondering if my Spotify will stop working after a couple of weeks. It's a lot of hassle getting a vpn in Sweden (if that would even help - I'm not that hot on IT-tech) just so the music I'm paying for with my Swedish Visa card will play. Besides that would hardly help since I mostly use my phone to listen.

 

Solutions?

 

Thanks!

As long as you continue to pay for Spotify Premium using your swedish card whilst you are away you can use Spotify premium abroad for as long as you like.

Hey Sam,
I got the same problem and can't pay for my Spotify, because I am currently in the US and I used to pay for spotify with my Brazilian card. I don't have a US card which I could use.

Hi I'm from Ireland and I use Spotify premium. I have recently moved to Qatar and now I'm also getting the error message that it doesn't work abroad after 14 days. I tried to reset my account settings to living in Qatar but It won't allow me to change it. I also wanted to change my back details to my Qatari bank and it also didn't allow this. Please help as I really need Spotify in my life!
