[Subscription] Student Discount iDeal Payment for the Netherlands

Hello Spotify,

Students in the Netherlands mostly pay with iDEAL, we don't have a CC. It is possible to pay with iDEAL for a regular premium subscription but not for the 'student discount subscription'. Can iDEAL be added as payment option?

Thank you,
Students from the Netherlands

Hey folks! 

We appreciate you sharing your feedback on this idea in the Community.

We're happy to announce that it's now possible to pay via iDEAL in the Netherlands, for the student discount.

If you're eligible for the discount, it just became even easier to get rocking!



Yes exactly this! I'm not able at the moment to get the student discount because I don't have a creditcard! Ideal would be great...


Same problem!



Same here!

Nice idea! Marked as a new idea and edited the title slightly to make it easier to find via search 🙂


Same here, please bring this idea to high attention.


Same problem, I might have to cancel my subscription if I can't pay with PayPal! 😞


 Yes please! Paypall would be fine to. One of those two is definitely a must!


Same here! It's not really fair when already paying for premium to not be able to switch to the student version, because you don't have a creditcard. 


I think every student in The Netherlands has this problem!
