How do I switch my payment method?

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


Select the site you wish to transfer and click the 'billing' tab


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


If this site is in a bulk 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.


In the window that appears, select the new payment option you'd like to use.

Click the ‘Replace Payment Method’ button to confirm your new selection.


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.
