It's happened to everyone. Your credit card's expired or you've lost it and received another. Or maybe you've decided that you'd rather pay yearly instead of monthly. This means that now you need to change your billing information.
If you need to update your credit card, it's a simple thing. Just go to Account > Billing Info > Update Payment Method and enter the new credit card. When you enter your new credit card, you need to enter the full sixteen digits, your address, and the security code for the card.
For the security code, if you are using a Visa or MasterCard, you need to enter the three digits off the back of the card. If you're using an American Express, you need to enter the four digits from the front of the card.
To switch your billing cycle, go to Account > Billing Info > Change Billing Cycle and select either Monthly or Yearly, whichever option you'd prefer.
If you switch to Yearly from Monthly, you'll immediately be billed a pro-rated difference between the remainder of your billing cycle (based on the date your billing first ran) and today. If you switch to Monthly from Yearly, a credit will be applied to your account based on the amount that was left from your last yearly charge. This credit will be used to pay your monthly bill until depleted.
