My Question or Issue

 

Everytime I try to subscribe to the family plan, it will ask me to choose to pay either via credit/debit card, or via mobile plan. I try to pick the credit debit but it always takes me to the mobile page

Hi just to update, my friend couldn't pay with card either. Is this a Malaysian issue?

Is there any updates to this at all? Even an indication that this is being worked on? I can see admins replying to other forums. Reason why I'm asking is because my family is waiting on me to subscribe and I'd really like premium for work.

Any updates? It's a bit weird that it takes this long to fix something that is actually preventing your customers to give you money

This issue has been posted since 20/11. It’s January now and this problem has NOT been fixed. I could not use the mobile payment as I do not use any of those mobile lines. 
It’s not like people don’t want to subscribe to your premium but you’re pushing the customers away

For those in MY, you may try with the following URL:

https://www.spotify.com/my-en/purchase/offer/premium-family/?country=MY&carrier=0

 

For the other countries, I believe it may also work if you replace "MY" with your country code in the above URL.

 

Hope this helps.

Hey there @jarlbinks and @ariannalow,

 

Thanks for posting!

 

@chuahjl shared a workaround here - could you give it a go and let us know if that helps you as well?

 

If you're still having troubles finding the right plan, it would be very helpful if you could let us know some additional details to pass along to the teams looking into this:

  • The exact steps you take when this happens
  • Does the same thing persist if you log in to your account in an incognito or private window in your browser?
  • Have you tried a different device or internet connection? 

Further, @ariannalow, to confirm, are you also trying to upgrade to Premium Student? 

We'll be keeping an eye out for your replies 🙂
