"Sorry, your payment information is not valid. Please update your details."

I wanted to change over our entire family to Pandora and convert to the Pandora Premium Family Plan.  Since my individual Premium Plan was set up through Google Play, I was told that I had to cancel that subscription through Google Play and let the current subscription expire and then sign up for the Pandora Premium Family Plan which is only available directly through Pandora an a pc.  I've done all of that, but when I try to enroll in the Pandora Premium Family Plan Pandora on the pc, I get the message "Sorry, your payment information is not valid. Please update your details."  I have already contacted my bank to make sure there isn't a security block, the funds are certainly available, but I keep getting this error.  I already submitted a contact request through Pandora, but have not received an email confirmation nor a ticket number.  If this isn't resolved today, I'll be shifting our music streaming to a different platform.


The lack of customer service via telephone is also a concern and not customer friendly at all.  I've been a Pandora listener for over 15 years as an individual.  Wanting to convert to a family plan with Pandora is proving to be frustrating though.  Does anyone have any insight to a possible resolution?

I am having the same issue, about to dump pandora. My card details are fine, but they are not accepted. I tried paypal, which also fails with "something went wrong".

Very annoying. The card was already on file, and working fine, there were no changes made on my side, but now pandora will not accept it!

Hi there, @TheDude. 👋

Sorry for any trouble with this error message as I understand how frustrating that can be. 

I do see that you had a Premium Family subscription but it looks like you recently resubscribed to an individual monthly subscription via the Google Play Store. 

If you still need assistance, I can help with creating an email support case for you. Our team is also happy to help with your subscription here. 🎧

I'm in the same boat.  I let my Apple subscription expire, and now I'm trying to upgrade to the family plan.

I've tried 3 cards as well as Paypal... all return the same "Something went wrong" and "Your payment information is not valid" errors.   I logged out, tried an Incognito window, and other steps listed in the pinned post.  Help!
