[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

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 here!

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


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!

I think every student in The Netherlands has this problem!


I don't think that students and college students need discount only , but also primary, elementary school students.All student types !!! If they are younger and not so smart, it does not mean that they have to pay more out of their pocket money, such as me!


I have the same problem!! I do have a creditcard, but I only want to use it in emergencies or on holidays. My premium account of now just takes the money off my debet card account. Why can't it stay the same way? What can we do to change this since this is the only way to ask a question to Spotify.


However, I don't think iDeal is the best solution, since it is a monthly payment. It can be easily just like the premium account I have right now. 


same problem, please solve this!!!!!
