[All Platforms][Subscription] International gift card (please !!)

A few months ago, I wanted to offer a birthday present to a person that badly wanted to have a premium account. 

 

It was the perfect gift and the person was so thrilled to have it, it was beautiful ... until the emotion rollercoaster started. 

 

The gift card code was not working because ... turns out that our accounts weren't from the same country (mine = Belgium and the other person's account = English). 

 

Spotify support center actually informed us that you cannot buy an online gift card for someone whose account is not from the same country as yours. You'd have to buy it physically in the gift receiver's country. 

 

WHAT ??? In such globalised world ? Where we have friends all over the world which we cannot be physically with but care about and would like to offer them gifts that would make them happy ?

 

Please Spotify, you'd make my day (month, year) if you could let us offer your premium gift card to anyone, anywere in the world...

Unfortunately some months later nothing has changed and I have the same problem. Really bizarre... we're in 2017!

By being so backward looking, Spotifiy is missing out on business.
