Spotify Premium free trial won't accept my credit card

In order to get the 30 day free trial for Spotify Premium, I needed to enter my credit card information, but when I filled it in, I was told they weren't able to verify my credit card. I don't have any other credit card or billing information registered on Spotify because I've never used anything but Spotify Free. What's wrong?

Hey! Welcome to the community :) 


Does your card meet all of the requirements outlined in this help page

Also, to verify your card exists, Spotify will charge the card $0.00 some banks/issuers block that payment for security reasons meaning the verification fails.
