How to Upgrade Your Spotify Account

Have a Spotify Free user account? Spotify calls people who sign up to its free service users. Anyone who signs up for Spotify Unlimited or Premium is no longer a mere user; she becomes a subscriber. Spotify’s subtle change in marketing-speak translates to “You’ve paid for a pure service with no compromises or limits. Welcome to the club.”

You can upgrade to a Premium or Unlimited account by following these steps:

  1. Click Log In at the top-right of Spotify’s website.

  2. In the pop-up window that appears, enter either your Facebook details or your Spotify username and password in the fields provided and click Log In.

    Alternatively, in the Spotify application, click your username at the top-right of the window and select Account from the drop-down list that appears.

    Your Spotify account page opens in your web browser.

  3. Click Get Spotify.

    You come to a web page promoting Spotify’s different products.

  4. Click either the Get Spotify Premium or the Get Spotify Unlimited radio button, below the appropriate product description.

    Alternatively, go directly to Spotify Premium to upgrade to either a Premium or Unlimited account.

    Your subscription choice is highlighted.

    Note that if you have a Premium gift code, you won’t need to enter your payment details — just select the I Have a Code option.

  5. Scroll down the web page and select the radio button for your payment method.

    Choose either credit card or PayPal in the Select a Payment Method section.

  6. Select the I Agree with the Spotify End User Agreement check box.

    There’s a link to this agreement, so you can read it before continuing.

  7. Click the Continue button.

  8. On the page that appears, review your purchase and enter your credit card details in the appropriate fields.

    Remember, you’re confirming a recurring monthly payment. In the fields provided, enter your credit card number, its expiration date, and security code (the last three digits on the back of your Visa or MasterCard, or the four digits on the front of your American Express card).

  9. Click the Confirm Payment button to finalize the process.

If you want to cancel your subscription, you can find a link to do so on your subscription page.
