How do I change the default payment method that's associated with my AWS account?
3 minute read
I want to use a different default payment method to pay my AWS charges. Or, I want to change my payment method from invoice, EFT, wire transfer, or another payment method to a different payment method.
When you create an AWS account, your default payment method is the first payment method that you enter.
In the navigation pane, chose Payment preferences.
Review your Payment methods to verify that your account has another valid payment method set as the default. To set a payment method as default, choose Make default next to your preferred payment method.
Select the payment method to remove, and then choose Delete.
For Delete payment method, choose Delete.
After you update your default payment method, new AWS bills automatically charge to that payment method for future billing. If you change your default payment method at the end of an AWS billing cycle, then you might incur charges on the original payment method.
Add a payment method when you remove a member account from your organization
When you remove a member account from AWS Organizations, the member account must have a valid payment method. If a valid payment method or other required information is missing when you remove the account, then you're sent to the sign-up process. You must provide a valid payment method and all other required information to remove the member account.
