Revolut payment

Hi there,

 

I am trying to use my Revolut card to make a purchase but it seems it doesn't work.

 

The message I get says I need to change my country location, which is Romania.

 

Any ideas?

I made it work now by adding a virtual card (not the disposable kind obviously as you need it to work more than once) to my Revolut account and giving Spotify the number of the new virtual card. Virtual cards are just like another card connected to your Revolut bank account, you just don't get a physical card with it, so you're paying for Spotify with your Revolut account, you're just using a different card number. 

 

Up until recently Revolut credit card numbers where coded to have been issued in the UK (where Revolut's headquarted), now they changed it in way that newly created card numbers are recognised as issued in the account owner's country.

Credit card issued in one country but register for another one

Hi All,

 

I have recently cancelled my account in Slovakia (I think the general banking options are **bleep**). I would like to pay for Spotify with my pre-paid Revolut card, however Spotify is saying I can't use it because it was issued in the UK. That is nice but I don't get why it is a problem since the card is registered on a Slovak address.

 

Just so you know, my main account is with N26, again registered at a Slovak address, but the card is issued in Germany, so I guess that doesn't solve the situation either.

 

Any ideas how to resolve this? I would love to keep using spotify.

Hey @jasomfufi,

 

If you're in Slovakia, you'll have to use a slovakian payment method, there's no way around it.

 

Sorry about that.

Same issue here in Portugal.

 

Would like to pay with my Revolut Card but can't without changing the address to UK.

Hi I had the same issue, but what you can do is creating an PayPal account and use your revolut card. You have to pay (in my case) 1 CHF. extra which is totally fine for me.

Spotify please fix your country detection of Revolut Limited. It is registered in Lithuania, BANK CODE 39200, BIC REVOGB21XXX instead of United Kingdom. Now I can't pay in euros but I have an euro account with Revolut. Here is a link to the Lithuanian Bank info:

You don't have to pay extra just when choosing to pay in paypal tick the box that you want your card issuer to convert the currency. If paypal converts he currency you have to pay extra. it is a tricky box to find in paypal.

Hey @ClaudiuD, welcome to the Community!

 

What country was the payment method issued in? Keep in mind that your Spotify account's country setting needs to match the country where your card was issued.

 

Also, does your payment card meet these requirements?

 

Let us know.

Yes. Same problem. Revolut user, Romania. I use the revolut account for all my reccurent payments. So it seems Spotify just lost a paying customer.

Yea, I can also live with your shuffle and ads bs.

 

Kudos.
