Can You Directly Sync Spotify Music to iPod Shuffle?

If you search Spotify’s community, you’ll find dozens of threads about sync issues between Spotify and iPod shuffle. And you are not alone because there are many people asked how to sync Spotify music to iPod shuffle/nano/classic.

"not being able to sync the music I spent hours picking out for my iPod shuffle and being Unable to put them onto my iPod from spotify is very disappointing..."

"I am attempting to sync a selected playlist to my iPod shuffle and instead of syncing the playlist, Spotify starts syncing my Local Files. If I attempt to unselect the Local Files the whole program shuts down. If I then open it again, it has just started syncing my local files all over again. Please help!"
