How to add a credit card to your account

Overview

This article describes how to add a credit or debit card to your DreamHost account to pay for various services through AutoPay or a single payment.

You will then be able to make a payment on the Manage Payments page.

Adding a credit or debit card to make a payment

You can either set up AutoPay or make a single payment using a credit or debit card. The advantage of setting up AutoPay is that DreamHost will automatically charge your card whenever a payment is due, which saves you time and hassle in paying for recurring charges every month.

Enabling AutoPay on your credit/debit card

To enable AutoPay on your credit or debit card:

  1. Navigate to the Manage Payments page.
