Hello and welcome to the Spotify Community! Allow me to assist you on your issue 🙂
When it comes to Free Trials, Spotify has implemented the rule of adding a credit card so they can verify:
I will quote Spotify's FAQ:
Even if there’s no initial charge, we may require a valid payment method, such as a credit/debit card or online payment account (e.g. PayPal), to begin a trial offer.
This is so Spotify can:
Tip: If you cancel before you trial period ends, you won’t be charged.
I personally really like Spotify Premium and I suggest you to grab it! Once you hop in, you won't want to hop out 😄
Anyways, hope I was useful! Have a nice day 🙂
If you don't have a credit card, then I quote once again: "[...] online payment account (e.g. PayPal)..."
If you have an online payment account, then you should be good to go 🙂
I've never tried to use PayPal with Spotify, but I do have an account without a credit/debit card in it. Maybe try giving it a go? If you can't, then there's no other way around 😞
The point seems to have got lost so I'll **bleep** in. You can only use Spotify gift cards to pay for premium. Play cards can't be used.
Heh, no worries 🙂
Just checking in to make sure you are not frustrated with this post thread. Things kind of went off the skids here over the several different ways to pay for and have access to Premium access on the Spotify service, and different parts of the thread answering questions about Premium access on the Spotify service.
Can you post back please if you might be confused?
