Tokopedia has recently launched a way to subscribe to Spotify Premium using its ‘streaming‘ voucher purchase system. This launch marks the first time a marketplace business hailing from Indonesia has ever released a means to a Spotify Premium subscription service.
Tokopedia Addressing its Consumer Demand: “A new lifestyle driven by Spotify Premium.”
Spotify’s collaboration with Tokopedia was driven by Tokopedia’s desire to respond to the on-going trend of music streaming that is currently emerging.
“We see a great demand in music streaming as it is now a new lifestyle for urbanites and millennials who enjoy entertainment on-the-go,” explains Herman Widjaja, Tokopedia’s VP of Engineering.
The same was voiced by Patrik Falk, who is the Head of APAC for Spotify Premium.
“As the most popular music streaming service in the world, Spotify wants to make music accessible for everyone in Indonesia,” Patrik stated in a written statement received by KompasTekno, Friday (12/04/2019).
“Our collaboration with Tokopedia enables Indonesians to have more options and greater ease in enjoying Spotify Premium,” he adds.
Other than Spotify Premium, What Other Digital Products Can Tokopedia Offer?
The presence of the Spotify Premium voucher service is an addition to the range of digital products available on the Tokopedia platform. This range now consists of over 300 products, including movie streaming services, on-demand TV subscriptions, sports shows, and other various Internet services.
With the launch of this collaboration, Tokopedia has also offered a cashback promo of up to Rp. 30,000, specifically for purchases of the Spotify subscription voucher, until the 30th of April 2019.
To access it, users can simply enter the promo code: TOPEDSPOTIFY upon completing the payment for the voucher.
So how can we actually subscribe to Spotify Premium through our Tokopedia account and at the same time get a discounted price, a.k.a the cashback?
