You can change the bank card associated with your account only if you have an active recurring subscription.
The most common reason why you can’t edit billing information is that your recurring subscription is inactive. As a result, the button for editing bank card information on the Billing Info page will not be available.
In this case, you need to log in to your account, go to our prices page, and re-subscribe to your plan with an updated card and billing information.
A card that you use to pay for API units, while displayed in your Billing info, is in read-only mode and cannot be edited.
To change this card, reach out to our Customer Support team.
If you are still having issues editing your billing information, please contact our Customer Support team.
Why did your transaction fail? The main reasons we see include:
Your card has insufficient funds
Your card may not permit online payments or international transactions
Your bank is rejecting the payment
To fix this, we recommend:
Topping up your balance or contacting your bank to ask for a credit limit increase
Contacting your bank to find out the reason for the decline
There will be several attempts from our side to make the transaction, so if the issue is resolved with your bank, the transaction will be processed automatically in a week. If you want to force the payment before the automatic attempt, enter bank card details in the Billing info tab.
You can change your bank card information only if your subscription is still recurring.
If you need personal assistance with the failed transaction, you can always reach out to our Support team, and a team member will be happy to help you.
If you see a notification “Sorry, the credit card you entered cannot be used for this payment. Please provide a different card” this could be because you’re trying to pay with a virtual card, and we don’t accept such a payment method (you can pay using all major physical credit cards, including Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, and UnionPay).
In this case, try using a different card.
If this is not the case, feel free to Contact our Sales team via this form, they will be happy to assist.
Please kindly note that you can use the option to get a free trial only once. All the following attempts will lead to the purchase of a monthly plan, and you will be charged accordingly.
Please do not worry - the authorization transaction is not a charge, and, eventually, it will disappear from your statement. In most cases, it is reversed almost immediately, but depending on your bank's internal policies, it can take up to several weeks.
If you would like to modify your subscription, cancel it or get a refund please refer to the answers below.
