@Aimeebarraza I moved your post into this existing thread: Upgrade attempts through Apple continue to fail

We are aware of this issue and are working with Apple to reach a resolution. In the meantime as a workaround, please use the following steps to upgrade: 

  1. Go to the Settings on your iOS mobile device.
  2. Tap on your Apple ID at the top of the screen. 
  3. Next select Subscriptions. 
  4. Scroll to the bottom of screen to view your expired subscriptions.
  5. Locate the Pandora subscription and select your preferred subscription tier. 
    1. You may see more than one option available for each subscription tier and can select either of those options. 

After you've confirmed the subscription through Apple, return to the Pandora app: 

  1. Go to Profile and tap Upgrade. 
  2. Then select Subscribe Now under your preferred subscription tier once more to finalize the process. 

Hope this helps.

Having the same problem here. I did get an error that popped up saying that my Apple ID doesn’t match the email address Pandora has on file for billing. So I went and updated my email address with in the Pandora app on my profile to match what my updated Apple ID is and it’s still having the same issue I firmly believe this is nothing to do with Apple and everything to do with an error in your app programming or billing database.

I recently upgraded to Pandora Plus again. I was a previous subscriber , took a break and came back, but had to change my payment method. I am still using the same email account and the payment went through (I can see it on my bank statement online) but my Pandora acct doesn’t reflect this change and I am still hearing ads on all my devices (Alexa, Roku, iPhone etc). I can’t figure out what the problem is!

Yesterday I upgraded Pandora from Pandora Plus to Premium from my iphone. It seemed to upgrade and I was starting to use the new features, but shortly afterwards it said my subscription expired. Went back to my profile and clicked "Get Premium". Chose "Subscribe Now". I then get a message that I'm currently subscribed to Premium. Clicked on "Retrieve your subscription" and that didn't help." Logged out then back in. Re-installed the app. Nothing seems to work

Hello,
Unfortunately I’m unable to execute the instructions given. When I go to settings and then Apple ID, there is no “subscriptions” option. I suspect it’s because I’m using iPhone 6
