I live in Hong Kong, but only have a South African credit card. How can I 'hack' a way to upgrade?

I live in Hong Kong, but only have a South African credit card. How can I 'hack' a way to upgrade my account to premium? I tried paying via PayPal, but Spotify picked up it was a South African credit card. I understand Spotify isn't available in South Africa, but as a resident of Hong Kong, surely there is a way to subscribe to premium? Thanks in advance for any insights or suggestions.

Hey @user-removed,

 

The only way to subscribe to Premium is to use a payment method from Hong Kong.

 

Spotify hasn't launched in South Africa yet, so there's no way you'll be able to use a payment method from there to subscribe to Premium.


Hope this helps!
