Currently, the website has taken down related projects and this method has expired. It is recommended to join the Filipino family group or other regional family groups.
Spotify is a relatively niche software in China, but it is well-known globally. In the domestic network environment, it can be directly connected and is reasonably practical. When logging in, it requires **, and functions such as listening to music can be used normally, depending on the actual network environment.
The limitations of Spotify Free Account are significant, such as limited song skips, advertisements, and the need to log in with the IP of the respective region every 14 days. On mobile devices, it is even unable to manually select songs and play in the background. On the other hand, Premium Account has no restrictions. Correspondingly, the official Spotify Premium price is relatively high, but Spotify's clean interface, extensive music library, and powerful recommendation algorithm are still very attractive.
People who are familiar with Spotify should know about the family plan, where the cost is shared among six people. In the Hong Kong region, it costs about 15 RMB per month. The family group membership plans sold on Taobao are similar in price to the official plans. There is also a cheaper method to purchase Spotify membership, which will be briefly explained below.
This method is not from the official Spotify, but from a Russian website called plati.market. The seller provides a six-month guarantee, and the cost is around 25 RMB. It has good stability and so far, there haven't been any issues.

Log in to your Spotify account first.
Click on the link sent to you.

If the invitation for your country/region is not available, change your country/region method (be sure to use the IP of this country/region) and log in to your account page on the Spotify website. Select "Account overview" from the left panel. Click "Edit Profile" and then click "Country". Choose the country/region you want to move your account to.

Here, choose to manually enter the address and input the address sent by the seller. Confirm to proceed. Family Mix is a collection of frequently listened songs by family group members. You can choose to join or not.
The prices for Spotify memberships on this platform start from $3. The seller mentioned that this is a requirement of the platform. Fortunately, the seller provides good service, so if any issues arise, be sure to contact the seller.
This is another new attempt, with the price being almost half of what I previously paid. It is not a loss for one month and a significant gain for two months. It was unexpected to be able to request a family group in the US region. It feels a bit like selecting a region on Taobao.
To be honest, I bought this membership with a trial mentality. After all, if I were to join a family group, a monthly family group in the Japanese region on Taobao would cost 20 RMB per month. The region I received is Canada, but the difference in music library is not significant and is within an acceptable range.
After all, it's only 20 RMB, and if it can be used for a month, it's already a good deal (because I have only used it for less than a month, I don't know about its stability yet, but according to some posts, some people have used it for a year without any issues).
Furthermore, I only provide recommendations and answers within my capabilities. Please be aware of the potential risks before making a purchase.
Finally, feel free to share your playlists~
