Before updating your payment information, it’s important that you understand the repercussions. When changing your payment details, your existing subscription will be canceled and a new one will be created.
If you subscribed to Premium through an app store or a third party service such as PayPal or iTunes, make sure to review the terms and conditions of that service before cancelling. You may also need to cancel any associated automatic renewal by contacting the related third-party provider directly. Any downloads purchased with a premium account are non-refundable and they won’t carry over to your new subscription.
If you’ve made any purchases with real money on Spotify – like Tones tunes – these will remain in your account regardless of whether you keep your subscription or cancel it. Canceling a subscription does not delete an account; it simply puts an end to the current billing period for that subscriptions and removes access to premiums features tied to it.

Understanding Spotify Payment Options
When you sign up for Spotify, payment details such as credit number or a PayPal account must be provided. Spotify offers multiple payment options, and understanding them will help you choose the best one for you.
Credit/Debit Cards: Payment by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and JCB is accepted. You can also save your card on file in order to expedite future purchases or payment of your subscription fees.
PayPal: You can also use PayPal to pay for monthly subscription fees or to purchase items in the store.
Wire Transfer: Users with premium accounts in certain countries are able to pay via wire transfer (e.g., China).
Gift Cards: Spotify gift cards are available for purchase online, at retailers worldwide and can be used to pay for your subscription each month. Gift cards are redeemable online only and cannot be used at partner stores such as Netflix, Hulu etc.. They will expire after a certain amount of time, so make sure to check the terms of your card before buying one!
Spotify Cash/Credits: Various special offers may allow users to collect virtual currency called “Spotify cash” which can be used in the store or to pay their monthly subscription fee. This currency is accumulated through paid purchases and special promotions alike, ensuring that loyalty pays off with repeat customers!
Benefits of Changing Payment Options
When you update your payment options for your Spotify subscription, there are several benefits and advantages. This can open up a range of additional payment options to choose from, such as using gift cards, pre-paid cards, or bank transfers instead of traditional credit cards. Additionally, changing how and when you pay could save you money – Spotify often offers promotional discounts when you sign up for a certain method of payment. Lastly, changing payment options allows users to more closely track their spending and budget accordingly – reducing the risk of an unexpected charge appearing on your credit card statement.
Hypothetically, if someone’s current payment option is set to auto-renew every month but they’re close to their financial limit when the renewal date arrives, then switching to an alternative form of payment from the one used initially would be a great way of ensuring they don’t incur any charges they weren’t expecting.
Steps to Change Payment Options
If you’re an existing Spotify Premium user, you can change your payment options at any time. Here’s how:
- Log into your Spotify account and select ‘Account’ from the menu on the left-hand side of the page.
- Click on ‘Subscription’ and then on ‘Change Payment Method’.
- Select your desired payment option and enter your payment information.
- Review the details of your billing plan and click ‘Agree & Submit’. Your subscription will now be set to recur with all applicable fees applied to the new method of payment that you have chosen.
It’s important to note that certain special offers for new and returning users may only be available through specific credit or debit cards, or other forms of payment such as PayPal or even Apple Pay, so make sure to check before changing your Spotify subscription’s payment option accordingly!
