Can't switch my Country

Newbie

Hey 

I just moved from Montreal to San Mateo and I can't change my country in my setting.

I did follow the how to but it just doesn't let me change it to USA.

I can't link my new Visa card because of that.

Hi @mbaril010, thanks for posting in the Spotify Community.

 
First of all, I suggest you check your IP address here.

 

After that, compare it to the country shown in your profile. If you're running a VPN or Proxy server then make sure it's also set to the country you wish to be in. 
 
If you opened your account with Facebook, your country will be tied to the country shown in your Facebook account, so you may need to change it there but try this alternative in the meantime if all else fails.
 
Change your payment method to match your country (try using different browsers if necessary). Use a card registered to the country you wish it to be associated with on this page. 

 

Hope this helps!

Hey @user-removed,

 

No need to worry here.

 

IF YOU CREATED YOUR ACCOUNT WITH FACEBOOK AND WISH YOU DIDN’T 

 

Please follow these steps:

 

  1. Create a new account.
    Note: Don’t click Sign up with Facebook. Instead, sign up with your email address.
  2. Contact Spotify if you want to move any saved playlists, songs, albums, and followers to your new account.
  3. If your original account is on a Premium subscription, cancel it and resubscribe on your new account. 

Note: To use the same email address associated with your original account, you’ll need to contact Spotify to release the email address.

IF YOU CONNECTED AN EXISTING SPOTIFY ACCOUNT TO FACEBOOK

If you didn't create your account with Facebook, but still see your Facebook profile picture in Spotify, this means your account has been linked to Facebook.

To unlink your Spotify account from Facebook:

  1. In the top-right corner of the desktop app, click  > Settings
  2. Under Social, click DISCONNECT FROM FACEBOOK

Note: You can link your account to Facebook again at any time. Just repeat the process, clicking CONNECT TO FACEBOOK

 

Hope this helps!
