Just bumping this thread because I have the same problem. Can't use my revolut card, must get one from a shitty Hungarian bank just for Spotify. Everything else works with my Revolut one. Fix**bleep** Spotify!

Try to buy Spotify Gift card in some online shop and use received code in your Spotify account. I solved the problem this way.

That's too much hassle when there are so many good alternatives. It's easier to use a different service and Spotify is not worth the effort of searching and buying some prepaid card.

Respectfully but this is total RUBBISH! It is 2019 and you clearly state on the website that we have full control over our payments to Spotify - evidently we DO NOT!  

To add insult to injury, should one try to change their home country to UK just to be able to use a Revolut card, the prices FROM €6.99 BECOMES £9.99!!!  Wonder what frikking exchange rate you use for that!!!  According to today's rates £9.99 is equal to €11.08 which is a far cry from €6.99!!! https://www.xe.com/currencyconverter/convert/?Amount=9.99&From=GBP&To=EUR
Is this the reason why you are trying to force us to switch to UK to use Revolut so you can shoot up our price in sterling?!?! Total rip-off and shame on you Spotify!!!  To **bleep** with your so-called Premium ripping off antics then!

Spotify have diffrent prices for diffrent countries. It is not exchange rate, Spotify just want more money from people who have Greate Birtain's IP address.

Besides the fact that this is totally not fair and I doubt how much it is in line with EU directives (UK is still in EU for now); then the suspicion that they force the credit card country to be the account country for lucrative reasons makes even more sense: they force you to select UK when you have a UK based card like Revolut just to be able the charge you MUCH MORE! 

 

I just CANCELLED premium as I cannot stand companies that try rip you off in such arrogant and devious ways!

HEY SPOTIFY! Stop this BS! You are a company based in a EU country, that means the same rules apply to you as the rest of us! Here, read this:

I think you need to revise your bs market practices...

As annoying as this is streaming music specifically called out as an exception to that for now;

"Exceptions

Services linked to copyright-protected content or works in an intangible form - such as music streaming services and e-books - will be excluded from the scope of the regulation. But this will be subject to a review by the European Commission."

Also has exceptions for pricing in different territories...

The objection I have is that you can't accurately use a bank card to determine a location and bank cards issued in different EU jurisdictions are becoming more common, N26, Revolut et al.

Hi!

I get the solution ;-)

  1. Create a Paypal account (free),
  2. add your Revolut card to your new Paypal account
  3. ... and finaly set Paypal as payment method in your country.

10minutes. Bam!

If you need visibility in Google, I do SEO or SEA for your business in the music area, I'm as creative as this Paypal hack to drive you leads. Contact me ;-)
