How to Sign Up For Spotify Premium

Introduction

Because Apple and Google take such a large percentage of earnings from sign-ups for paid services through apps downloaded through the Apple and Google app stores, Spotify no longer lets users sign up for Spotify Premium through its mobile apps. As a result, you have to purchase Spotify Premium through the Spotify website. After purchasing Spotify Premium through the website, you’ll be able to use all of the benefits of your premium subscription in the Spotify app on Apple and Google devices.
