Hi there, it's not possible to merge existing profiles into a Family subscription. There's one master account and inside that account you can create up to 5 additional profiles and everyone will login with the master account details.

To create an additional profile: settings > switch profile > create new profile > fill in the user details: username, gender and age and click create

To use a profile: login to the master profile > settings > switch profile > select the profile of your choice

There is a workaround that will let you "copy" a music library from a Deezer account into a newly created Family profile so you don't have to start from scratch. It will sound complicated but it's pretty simple:

Log into the Deezer account with the favorites you wish to recover and click on “My music” in order to find the "User ID" and make a note of it (it’s the number shown at the end of the URL address). Also, make sure that the profile and playlists are set to “public” (http://www.deezer.com/account/share).

You can now log out of this account and log in now to the Family account and create a new profile. After creating the profile, you can now fetch the favorites and playlists from the old account. For this, simply copy this to your browser’s address bar http://www.deezer.com/profile/XXXXXXX/playlists - Replace the XXXXXXX with the USER ID that you noted previously

To transfer a playlist not made by you, just click on it and on the blue Heart to add it to your favourites. To transfer a playlist created by you, go to that playlist and then tick the right box on top of all the titles, select + (add) and then "Add to playlist" and then "New Playlist" and name it as you wish, then "create"

Your playlist is now on the new family profile.

Repeat the process with the rest of the playlists you wish to recover.

To transfer favourite albums and artists, just click on the blue Heart on them and they will be automatically added to this new family profile 🙂

Hi @corrien4real, you can't add an existing Deezer account to a Family account. The masterprofile has to create a child profile for you. Once logged in with the new child profile you can visit your old account directly in Deezer and just add the music to the new account by pressing the heart button ☺
how can I transfer playlists between the members of a family account? to be more precise I want to transfer a playlist from the main account to a family sub-account.

Hi @Björn_

the easiest way is to be in the account you want to receive the playlist, then search for the other profile, then you can see their playlists. Just check all the songs in their playlist and and add to a new playlist (this will add to your profile the playlist you create) - I hope that makes sense?

There is a workaround that will let you "copy" a music library from a Deezer account into a newly created Family profile. It will seem complicated but it's actually pretty simple:

First, log into the Deezer account with the favorites you wish to recover and click on “My music” in order to find the "User ID" and make a note of it (it’s the number shown at the end of the URL address). Also, make sure that the profile and playlists are set to “public” (http://www.deezer.com/account/share).

You can now log out of this account.

Now log in to the Family account and and go to the profile where you want the songs transferred to and fetch the favorites and playlists from the old account. For this, just copy this to your browser’s address bar http://www.deezer.com/profile/XXXXXXX/playlists

(Replace the XXXXXXX with the USER ID that you noted previously)

To transfer a playlist not made by you, just click on it and on the blue Heart to add it to your favourites.

To transfer a playlist created by you, go to that playlist and then tick the right box on top of all the titles, select + (add) and then "Add to playlist" and then "New Playlist" and name it as you wish, then "create"

Your playlist is now on the new family profile. Repeat the process with the rest of the playlists you wish to recover.

Hello,
Living at the same adress, we both have a Premium Account.
We would therefore like to get one Familly Account instead, however we would like to be sure that the two accounts (playlist, history etc) would be integrated to this new account
Would it be possible ? What are the steps to follow in order to achieve it ?
Many thanks,
M.
