Option 2 Add iTunes playlists to Spotify Local Files

Currently Spotify itself no longer supports importing iTunes playlists to Spotify. This feature is replaced by Local files. In Spotify settings, you will find Local Files, switch on "Show Local Files" and then click ADD A SOURCE to select your iTunes music folder. Normally all iTunes songs are stored in /Users/~~/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media/Music, to add a single playlist to Spotify local files, you need to locate all songs in the playlist and move them to a folder. No matter how many playlists you want to transfer to Spotify, they all appear in Local Files and doesn't shown as playlists.

Spotify local file supports .mp3, .m4p (unless it contains video), .mp4 (if QuickTime is installed on your computer). The iTunes lossless format (M4A) is not supported. So if you want to transfer iTunes playlists that contains other format songs to Spotify local files, you need to convert the songs to mp3 first. Ondesoft iTunes Converter allows you to easily convert any iTunes music to mp3. It automatically grabs all your iTunes library songs and playlists. You can convert any playlist as you like. Choose a playlist and click the above checkbox to select all songs, you can also uncheck the ones you don't want. Then choose another playlist and select songs. You can convert multiple iTunes playlists simultaneously.
