How to change your credit or debit card's expiration date or billing address, or your PayPal account's friendly name or billing address.

You can update your credit or debit card info for accounts that are Active or Pending. If you are paying your charges with a PayPal account, you can also update the PayPal account's name or billing address as needed.

If you want to use a different card or PayPal account (for accounts based in the United States), you must add the other card's billing info first, and then assign the card as the current payment method.

    Where is the security code?

    The security code is located on the back of most credit and debit cards. It is usually a three-digit number printed at the end of a string of numbers. Some cards, such as American Express, have a four-digit security code on the front of the card, above the last digits of the card number.
