How to Pay For Spotify Premium Outside The US.
Spotify, like most services, is available in both free and paid versions. You can listen to the free version of Spotify from anywhere using a VPN or by paying $ 9.99 per month. You get not only ad-free music, but also the ability to listen to music in high quality and download it to your system.
But what really worries me about the free version is the lack of ability to navigate through tracks, so I decided to try Spotify Premium, only to find out Spotify Premium is not available in my country due to distribution rights.
It turns out that if Spotify is not officially available in your country, you won’t be able to enjoy its premium version without ads either. For example, you can get a free version of Spotify in India using a VPN, however, if you want to subscribe to Spotify Premium in the US, you need a US credit card or Paypal account for that country.
But, fortunately, there is always a way out. I was finally able to get Spotify Premium, although it is not officially available in my country. Let’s find out.

Get Spotify Premium from anywhere
1. Get a VPN
A VPN is required to listen to the free version of Spotify. If so, just go to the next part. If not, then I would recommend installing a good VPN on your computer. Proton VPN and Tunnel Bear are decent free VPN options, but if you’re looking for a good VPN and are willing to pay ($ 5 per month), you can choose between Nord VPN and Smart DNS Proxy.
If you have a VPN, keep it close at hand, we’ll need it later.

2. Buy a gift card
Next, we need to buy a gift card for Spotify Premium as it only accepts US credit card.
There are several sites that provide, we usually use MyGiftCardSupply and Target (recommended). None of these sites require a US credit card or PayPal to purchase a gift card.
Most gift card sites (like MyGiftCardSupply) sell $ 10 Spotify gift cards for about $ 17, which is too expensive in my opinion. If you have a friend or relative living on Spotify who has supported the country, I would recommend asking them to buy you gift cards in bulk. They are easy to buy at Target or Walmart stores.
Another alternative is to buy a Spotify gift card from Target, they sell Spotify for $ 10 for just $ 10 (no commission). However, you can only buy 2 gift cards at a time and you will have to wait up to 4 hours to receive the card to your email address.
Anyway, in this case we’ll just use the $ 10 gift card from MyGiftCardSupply as they will deliver the card within a minute of payment. So add it to your cart and pay with your PayPal account. Enter your name, email address and verify your phone number.
You will then receive the code by email in a minute or two. Sometimes they deliver a scanned copy of the physical card by email, and sometimes just a code. Once you’ve got the code, copy it to your clipboard.
3. Register Spotify Premium
Then turn on the VPN and make sure the server is set to United States as this is the gift card we bought. For example, if you are buying an Australian gift card or using PayPal, make sure you switch to the server of the respective country, such as Melbourne.
Now go to the Spotify gift card redemption page, if you are not already signed in to Spotify, do so with your Facebook or email.
It is important that you subscribe to Spotify Premium on the website and not in the app. Apple takes a fraction of every in-app purchase from the App Store, so if you sign up on your iPhone, Spotify Premium costs $ 13 per month instead of the usual $ 10 per month.
Then just enter the gift card code.
You may see a message stating that if you enter a gift card “you won’t be able to use a one-month free trial,” this is a tempting offer, but it won’t work. If you want Spotify offers, you need to link your credit card or PayPal and this does not apply to us, we will just enter the gift card details.
So now you have Spotify Premium. Now you can listen to Spotify Premium ad-free and unlimited.
Spotify Premium on Android
To get Spotify Premium on Android, you need to download the Spotify APK from sites like ApkPure. This is the only source I trust. Make sure the “ Allow installation from unknown sources ” checkbox is checked in Android settings, and then install the Spotify app.
Then turn on your VPN and switch to a US server.
Sign in to the Spotify app with the same credentials we used before. Once you do that, you can enjoy Spotify Premium on it. If you already have the app installed, just sign out and sign in again to get premium features.
Spotify Premium on iPhone and iPad
Likewise, in order to get Spotify Premium on iPhone, you need to change your App Store to US in order to download the Spotify app.
To do this, go to Settings iTunes & App Store Your Apple ID View Apple ID. Sign in to your Apple ID by entering your password. You should now see the option to change the country.
Now click Country / Region Change Country or Region.
Select United States from the drop-down list. In the new window, click “Agree” in the upper right corner to save the changes.
You will need to enter a billing address and click Next to continue.
Again, as with Android, turn on the VPN, switch to a server in the US, and sign in.
Pay for Spotify Premium outside of the US
So, this is how you get Spotify Premium from anywhere in the world. In my opinion, Spotify Premium is a service worth paying for, especially if you listen to music every day. The downside to this method is that you will need to buy a gift card to renew your subscription. But if you like the service, it’s worth it.
