Spotify have made upgrading to Premium even easier by adding the payment method PIX. It’s the most used payment service within Brazil, so by adding this, their Premium numbers may increase.
Music streaming service Spotify have now added PIX as a payment method for those in Brazil. Since PIX is the most used payment service within the country, Spotify have decided to add it as an option when upgrading.
