Spotify Philippines Issue "We Could Not Process Pre Approved Credit Card"

Was following https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/279292

Created a PH Paypal and switched my spotify over to PH
however everything seems good until checkout when i try to add my Commbank CC, it says that i could not use this card for this transaction
I haven't had this cc on any other paypal acc before.
Even transferred paypal balance to the Ph Paypal with no help,
DiviPay no longer works
and Entropay is no longer supported, Any other cc's/methods i can use?

might try Load n Go but feel like that wont work either, any help will be much appreciated

      Yea I made sure all security options are allowed with no help

      ps.
      After the initial attempt to add the cc in paypal where it says "this card has been added but cannot be used for this transaction"
      after i try and go through payment again
      i get an error "we cannot setup pre-approved payments please try again later"

    Is Spotify identifying the CC as Australian and therefore not allowing it on a PH site? I've had this issue on other sites previously.

      Thats probably the only explanation i can think of, however others were vouching for Commbank cc's… Any virtual online cc's i can use?

      I highly doubt Spotify is aware of the credit card you are trying to use. Your credit card info stays with PayPal.

      One thing I can think of is that PayPal is doing card verification - billing address versus what address on the PayPal PH account you created.

      I’ve had my Qantas cash card linked to my PH account for a few years now with Spotify Family PH automatic debit each month.

        Maybe they have recently blocked it, i have attempted it with a new Paypal and spotify account using load and go with the same error occurring

    Create a new Philippine PayPal account with a VPN and a different email address and transfer Philippine funds from your Australian PayPal.

      correct me if im wrong but from what ive read, Paypal still requires a CC on the account even if theres balance? since its a reoccurring payment?

        You don’t need a credit card to be attached for reoccurring payments.

        I had auto transfers from my bank accounts before I had a debit card.

          Oh, Very Strange, i tried to do it yesterday after removing the card and it didnt let. I will try with a new paypal account and post the outcome

          Gave it a shot, Paypal forces you to add a cc, added brand new Load and go on a new paypal acc and spotify with no help. Seems like theyve found a fix/patch

        Correct. But even with a credit card attached to the account your subscription charge will always go to the prepaid balance first. By keeping the account in credit you avoid credit card and international transaction charges.

    Got it activated last night. Used Brave browser with block ads, block third party cookies, block all fingerprinting. I had set up my Philippines Spotify and Paypal about 3 weeks ago and tried then but kept failing. I added my ANZ travel card to Paypal and verified it then also. Then I tried it tonight and it worked with Brave Browser, dont think I tried it then.
