I know this is posted a lot and it's very hit or miss whether or not it works. It took me several attempts with PayPal just to get the card to link but eventually it does work . A great deal once it is working, good luck.
Not as good as Philippines and other countries we had in the past but they just wont work anymore. However, this is cheaper than the Egypt one that's been doing the rounds with a gift card lately.
****For people having trouble with the country changing, you need to use an installed version of your VPN, not one of the browser ones, for example windscribe chrome add-on would work, windscribe app did, both set to Ukraine.*****
****Important note that I was using NordVPN - Ukraine which did work eventually****
Subscription prices around the world fluctuate a lot. Mostly due to the fact that they have to be in relation the average income of different countries.
Prices (Charged by Spotify in USD):
Spotify (1 User) = $4.99 p/m
Spotify Duo (2 Users) = $6.49p/m
Spotify Family (6 Users) = $7.99 p/m
So the steps I followed was
- Connect VPN
- sign up to PayPal in Ukraine with the VPN on. DO NOT USE a UK PayPal account as it wont work.
- register your card to the Ukraine PayPal. It will set the default currency to GBP so just click on the linked card and change its currency to Ukraine hryvnia.
- bill address, I put my
UK door number.
UK Street name.
Ukraine city (I used Kiev)
Post code = I used a random Kiev postcode I found on Google.
- Register to Ukraine Spotify. If you are using a current account then it will need to be on a free account, then whilst connected to Ukraine VPN change your region under profile to Ukraine.
- Sign up and select pay by PayPal for subscription.
****Remember the address you use, as family members will need to confirm your address when activating their subscription.*****
**** ONE KEY NOTE, AFTER I SIGNED UP FOR UKRAINE PAYPAL, I GOT THE ERROR "We weren't able to set up pre-approved payments" AND WOULD NOT WORK. I LEFT IT A WEEK AND THEN TRIED TO ADD A SUBSCRIPTION TO MY SPOTIFY USING THE SAME PAYPAL AND IT WENT STRAIGHT THROUGH. Seems that PayPal needs time to run checks on your PayPal account and allow pre-approved payments. I also had my account limited and PayPal request ID so I sent them my UK Driving Licence which they approved.******
