How to add a credit card to your account

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.

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.

Setting up Autopay

  1. Navigate to the (Panel > 'Billing & Account' > 'Make Payment') page.
  2. Scroll down to the 'Set Up Autopay' section and click the blue Set Up Autopay Now button.
    The 'Set Up Autopay' page opens, which displays the following 'Add Card' button at the top:

  6. When finished, click the blue Save Credit Card and Enable Autopay button to complete the charge.
