Switch to Spotify Student, on paypall

Casual Listener

I am a very long time user of Spotify, premium and unlimited. Today I read that Spotify Student will be coming to the Netherlands(Today, whoo!). After searching  a while for an URL I found that switching /us/ to /nl/ works for the student discount in Dutch.

 

Because I am a student and don't have a credit card(Almost no student has one in the Netherlands). I am used to paying for my Spotify with PayPal, this was the perfect solution for me and would like to keep that. But there is no button to switch my subscription or change it to student. I am able to stop my subscription and request a new one, but I am afraid this is no option for me. 

 

So, my main question. How can I get Spotify student using PayPal?

Hey @timted3

 

Spotify has posted this article here and it says that it will show all of the available payment methods when it asks for a payment:

https://support.spotify.com/account_payment_help/subscription_information/payment-methods/

 

Payment methods vary by country and some payment methods might not be available with all subscription types (family, student, etc).

 

Since the student discount just launched in more countries, it could be that credit card is the only option right now for those countries and could expand to more options in the future. There have been other users posting here that the only option it gives them is credit card. So I'm not really sure there is not much information on this yet. It's still very new.

Sorry, I don't have any information on that. I am just a community volunteer. This is still very new. I suggest checking http://news.spotify.com for when more info is posted. Also there should be some info posted at https://support.spotify.com soon

From this Tweet is looks like credit card is the only payment method right now:
