Getting spotify premium

My Question or Issue

I want to get Spotify premium. Since i have no creditcard (and I'm not planning on getting one), I chose to use paypal. It was rather disappointing to see that when I continued I was asked to link a creditcard. Why do they give you a choice if they're gonna ask for creditcard anyway? Why can't I use my normal bank-account that's linked to my paypal?

Hey @madcyanide, I'll be happy to help you!

Could you try to join Premium here using a different browser or incognito mode? If you're not seeing that payment method available at checkout - then I'd recommend trying a different payment method.

 

Let me know how this goes 🙂

Same problem. I select the paypal-option as payment method, and click on start premium. I get redirected to the paypal-site where I'm asked to login, after logging in I'm asked to link a creditcard to my account in order to proceed.

Hey @madcyanide.

 

Thanks for the reply!

Could you try checking out this support site article?

 

If you have any further questions using that payment method, you can always check Paypal's help center for more info.

 

Let me know how things go!

none of the links you mentioned offered any solution. Both accounts (Spotify and Paypal) are registered to the same adress, the bank-account linked to Paypal is verified. 

Hey @madcyanide.

 

Thanks for checking!
You'll need a card or bank account linked to your PayPal in order to make a monthly recurring payment to Spotify - I'd recommend taking a look at this response in the PayPal Community, which confirms this.

 

Have a nice day 🙂

e already linked a bank-account to my paypal-account.

Seen there doesn't seem any issue with the settings on the spotify-side of the situation. I went ahead and contacted the paypal-helpdesk, perhaps I'm doing something wrong on their end.

Either way thanks for the help.
