If you are using the credit card AutoPay system, you may need to update your credit card details over time to replace outdated or expired information. You can make this change securely within your DreamHost panel.

Please note that if you wish to change only your expiration date, you must still enter all of your data again. There isn't a way to only update the expiration date by itself.

To change your credit card information used for automatic payments:

  1. Visit the (Panel > ‘Billing & Account’ > ‘Make Payment’) page.
    If you have signed up for credit card AutoPay, you will see the card that is currently on your account listed, as well as an option to modify your credit card details:

Troubleshooting expired cards and AutoPay errors

If you receive an error due to an expired card, just add your new card to the panel as the new AutoPay card on file.

As long as your credit card data saved to your AutoPay is accurate, the billing system will attempt to charge your card again within a week until your due balance is resolved.
