My Question or Issue

Hi Team,

I have just discovered that since activating Premium for Family on April 14, I have been double charged twice (April, May), ie. €5.99 for Premium, as well as €8.99 for Family.

 

Billing details follow:

<Moderator edit: Removed payment details>

 

Please review and refund. I am happy to provide additional information upon request. Thank you.

Hi @Peter,

 

The double charge has been resolved with Spotify Support. The problem was that one family member initially subscribed to a 3-month offer with one email address and then used a different one with the Family sub.

 

Thank you for your time and advice. Tom

Hi @Peter,

 

It looks like this scenario applies:

 

Check with your friends/family to see if anyone you know subscribed with your payment details.

 

I used my payment (debit card) details multiple times to pay for my mother's and sister's Premium accounts some time ago and then switched to the Family plan myself, inviting them to join, thinking Spotify takes measures to avoid multiple charges. What do I do then, please? They are part of my Family plan now, do they still have the Premium plan active somehow? How do I resolve this? Should I remove my card details from their accounts or can you make things right for me?

 

Thank you!

Hey @logravity.

 

Thanks for getting back to us.

 

It's possible that one of your Family members has two accounts: one which is still on Premium, and a separate one which is now part of the Family plan.

 

Could you ask them if they have a secondary account, and if they're unsure, then could you refer them to this support article, which will help them find their other account?

 

Keep us posted :)

Hi @Peter,

 

I double checked with the rest family members and it looks like they all only have one Spotify account. One oddity I noticed in my Family plan details is that my father's account shows up with my name, however the email address is correct/his.

 

If I provide you with the account details, would you be able to look into this with me in a non-public side-channel somehow?

 

FYI I got charged twice again on June 19 and 20..

 

Cheers, Tomas

Hi @Peter,

 

I have sent a "Question" to your Support now as well. It is VERY difficult to find a straightforward way to open a ticket with you guys, I find that disturbing.

 

Please do NOT tag this thread as Solved yet.

 

Thank you for your assistance so far. Tomas

BTW @Peter, how does the Support communication work, please? Is it via email or in some sort of a Support Portal (URL?), will I receive an email notification when a reply comes? What is the usual/average time for them to reply? Nothing has come back yet. Thanks!

Hey @logravity.

 

Thanks for your question :)

 

If you've contacted our Customer Support team via email, then you should have received an automated confirmation email saying that they will get back to you within 48 hours. 

 

If they haven't done so, do you mind replying to the confirmation email with your request? They should get back to you shortly after that.

 

Hope that helps - keep us posted :)
