When using PayPal, you may have a cash balance in your PayPal account plus additional backup payment methods in the form of a credit card or your bank account. When you use a credit or debit card, there is no backup payment method built-in like in PayPal. For this reason, OnceHub allows you to add multiple backup payment methods in your OnceHub account. A backup payment method is highly recommended to avoid service interruption if there is a payment failure.
In this article, you will learn how to update and add a new credit/debit card payment method. You must be an Administrator to access the Subscription and billing section.

A primary payment method is created automatically in these situations:
When you purchase an account with a card for the first time, the card record is stored in the Billing tab as the primary card. If you upgrade your account thereafter, the primary card will be used by default during the purchasing process.
When you upgrade your account and opt to use a different card, the new card record will be stored in the Billing tab as the primary card and the former primary card becomes a backup payment method.
