PayPal Subscription Failed - How to update credit card

If a PayPal subscription fails, PayPal will make 2 more attempts to charge your account
Each attempt is spaced three days apart.
Then the subscription is canceled if all attempts fail.
If your PayPal account has a balance the fee will be taken from there.
Keeping some money in your PayPal account can help when a credit card fails.

The instructions below show how to add a new credit card to your PayPal account and then assign it to a subscription.
Make sure to add the new card before removing the old one or the subscription will be canceled.
If the subscription is accidentally canceled please contact us to start a new one.
