It has long been an open secret that views on Spotify can be bought. There may be different reasons: the desire to become popular as soon as possible, to monetize playlists, to share created music content with more people, and so on. But is buying streams on Spotify worth it? Let’s break it down.
There are two ways Spotify users can buy streams. The first is to ask your subscribers on the social networks to listen to the songs for a small nominal fee. On the face of it, this method could be considered legal, as the curator of the playlists does not get third-party resources. But Spotify’s developers may notice suspicious activity on your account and impose certain restrictions on you. So, this method is not the most reliable.
The second and more common option is buying streams via third-party apps and websites, which is also illegal. As we have already said, this method is more common, so the risk of being “caught” is much higher. The platform developers do their best to detect such suspicious activity and if you are suspected, you will be punished with a number of restrictions. Moreover, you may lose everything you previously achieved on Spotify’s streaming service. For example, you may lose access to all previous streams and become ‘invisible’ to other customers.
For developers of resources to launch fraudulent view bots, this limitation just creates an extra motivation to create products that can “cheat” Spotify without risking being restricted. But still, the risks of getting caught are very high. So, Spotify’s representatives emphasize investing in improving their skills and promoting their business legally, and buying streams is a threat to the entire music industry and it slows down its development only. Thus, in terms of the long-term development of your business, buying streams is not worth it. If your goal is short-term popularity, then apparently the risks of losing views are not a threat to you.
