My Question or Issue

 

Hello everyone, thank you very much,

 

I think it is a frequent problem: a few days ago I received the typical message "we could not renew your subscription due to a payment problem. If you want to keep your subscription, please update your payment details". There have been no changes to my card or my bank account. I have tried to re-enter it, but the problem persists. I have tried to insert another card but I cannot update the data either.

Please some help! I don't want to lose all my playlists etc. !!

 

Thanks 🙂

Hey @SQS_3989,

 

Thanks for keeping in touch.

 

There's no need to worry - when you cancel your subscription and your account is reverted to the free service, you don't lose any of your playlists or saved content. You'll just need to re download them for offline listening once you subscribe again. The accounts in your family plan will also be reverted to free, so you'd need to send them the invites again to join your plan when you subscribe.

 

Alternatively, you could wait 24 hours since your last payment attempt to try it again, or try using a different payment method to see if it does the trick. As long as it meets all these requirements, there shouldn't be any trouble. It's also worth reaching out to your bank to check if everything is fine on their end.

 

We hope this helps. We'll be right here if you have any questions 🙂

I have similar issue. Old card exipred and I'm unable to enter a new one, because according to my bank, spotify is NOT PSD2 compliant. So I'm expecting spotify to suggest alternative payment methods or fix the PSD2 support.

Hey there @SQS_3989 and @RaidoIvalo,

 

Thank you for your posts here in the Community. We're happy to help.

 

Can you try from an incognito/ private window?

 

If that doesn't do the trick, can you try from another browser?

 

@RaidoIvalo - when you have a new card it's always good to doublecheck that the card is enabled for foreign, secure online, and recurring purchases. You can look for these settings in your bank’s mobile app.

 

Also, make sure your bank or payment provider has your correct details. They may need to verify your identity for security, e.g. with a password, PIN, fingerprint, or code sent to your device. 

 

Let us know how everything goes so that we can keep on assist you if you need us to 🙂

Take care!

Thanks Jeremy. The secure online purchases are enabled and bank details are correct. I asked the bank to verify the issue and lack of PSD2 support is what they told me to be the issue on Spotify side.

Hey again @RaidoIvalo,

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

We've implemented all necessary security measures to handle payments within the EU. If everything is set up correctly with your bank, as you suggested though, trying another payment method might be worth a go.

 

If you receive any error messages it'd be great if you send it over. Just make sure that the screenshot don't show any sensitive information.

 

Keep us posted 🙂

Take care!

Hi Jeremy, Thank you very much for the reply,

 

I have tried it in incognito mode and using another browser (both incognito and normal). It doesn't work in any way ...    😕

 

I have checked and my card is enabled for internet payment and in secure commerce ...

 

What can I do now?

 

Thanks a lot !!

Hey again @SQS_3989,


Thank you for your reply.

 

We suggest that you have a look so that your 3d secure authentication is enabled or if your bank has changed 3d secure authentication recently?

 

It might be worth to cancel the subscription so that your account reverts to our free version and then try to subscribing again from a different browser or device.

 

We'll be on the lookout for you reply.

 

Cheers!

Thanks Jeremy,

Yes, I had already thought about letting the account be canceled for non-payment and re-subscribing. Would I lose my playlists etc?

What worries me is that when re-subscribing, I will use the same bank details as before. Hope that works because I don't know what to do if it doesn't.

Thanks!
