How do I switch my payment method?

Updated on May 1st, 2020

If you need to switch payment methods for a site on Flywheel, just follow these easy steps:


Select the site that you'd like to change payment methods and click the 'billing' tab


Hover over the ellipsis icon to the right of 'Billing History' and select 'Update payment method'


If this site is in a Freelance or Agency plan: you won’t find the option to replace the payment method from directly inside the Billing tab.

Instead, you’ll be prompted to visit the bulk plan’s billing page. Click the “subscription page” link. You’ll find the same option to replace the payment method for the bulk plan on that page.

Reminder, a yearly subscription gets 2 months free.


On the new page that appears, select the new payment option you'd like.


If you have any past-due balance for your site—in the event we were unable to charge your previous payment method, for example—switching to a new payment method will cause the new payment method to be immediately charged the amount required to bring payments up-to-date. We’ll only charge the amount originally owed, though; we don’t charge late fees on stock subscriptions.
