Spotify took Kenya by storm and many music lovers hopped on the bandwagon because of its unique features like providing personalized playlists and music recommendations to users. The music streaming platform has been a popular source of entertainment across the country for over a year now. Better yet, you can pay for your plan via Mpesa. This is a great method of payment for users who wouldn’t like to have to connect their cards to their accounts.
It is also a widely used payment method in the Kenyan market that Kenyans find convenient. This gives its competitors a run for their money that are also in the international streaming business.
You can pay for a Spotify plan by choosing from the PrePaid plan (which does not auto-renew) or the Subscription plan (auto-renews). The Mpesa option is currently available for the Prepaid Individual plan. Hopefully, the leading music streaming platform will soon fully integrate Mpesa for all payment options.
There are currently 5 Prepaid plans you can pay for via Mpesa: 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, and 12 months which are available for one time payments. The one-time payments that are not auto-renewable. If you are not comfortable about connecting your card to your Spotify account, here’s how you can pay via Mpesa.
