Youtube premium wont let me re-sub [OR_RECR_05]

I have used Youtube premium with the "cheaper price via VPN" fix. I got a new debit card but forgot to change my payment method on Youtube and the sub ran out since it could not pull money from the old card.

Now, when i try to re-sub, it wont let me. I pointed my VPN (Hola VPN) to Turkey when i set up Youtube premium but now it wont accept the payment since it recognises that my card isnt from Turkey. I got the error: [OR_RECR_05]

I have done the following:
1. I have tied a myriad of different countries the last couple of days but it just wont let the payment go throug.
2. I have updated updated my payment profile with a fake turkish address according to this FAQ:

Is there someway to bypass this without having to create a new account for youtube? Any help would be amazing.

    I had the same issues as you when trying to subscribe via Turkey but I got it to work via Pakistan with a Pakistan address. Have you tried that one?

    • I got it to work with a Polish address. Its not as cheap as Argentina but its half the price compared to my country, so its better than nothing.

    Just signed up through Ukraine with an amex card, just appeared to take my payment no questions asked. Will see if it processes successfully in a months time I guess.

  • My YT premium via Turkey is due for renewal next month. My payment profile is still set for turkey and my card details are up to date, albeit a newer card than I used for last year's subscription. I can still connect to a Turkish based VPN but don't usually leave it connected.

    What are my chances of success?

        Not sure… I reckon closer to 52 / 48 myself, but you might be right - bit of a coin toss really.
