My Question or Issue

Hello Spotify Team


As above my original Credit Card whihc is licked to the account has been changed.

This credit card was added at the time when I had free 3 mth offer.
On 26/12/19 Spotify tried to take the payment however it failed as my credit card had changed.
I am now trying to add a new credit card however i keep getting the error "Payment Failed"

I have tried in incognito/private mode on Firefox and Internet Explorer and also checked that my credit card does allow online recurring payments.


Please assist.





Hey there @SlipKnot-0


Thanks for reaching out to the Community about this. 

We suggest you try adding the new credit card again in 24 hours. If you tried to add the card too many times in a short period of time, the system blocks your attempts in order to avoid possible fraudulent transactions.


In case you still see the same after trying again, you should contact the issuer of the card to check what might be causing this. 


Hope you'll find this info useful. We'll look out for your reply and jump in if we can help any further!

Hi there @Tombro27,

thanks for reaching out to the community !


You can view all payment methods available to you by visiting your account overview page at


Another thing you can view is you current account status in order to see if you upgrade was made.

However, there's a common mistake among users which is to create more than one account when trying to upgrade.


Therefore, please use this help page to locate all account listed with your details and make sure you're using the correct account with the correct details.


Furthermore, you can read more about unexpected charges on this help page.
