Reassign your primary or backup payment method
Applies to G Suite, Cloud Identity Premium, and other paid services managed in the Google Admin console.
You can easily change which credit card or bank account you use to make automatic payments for your Google service. You can also reassign your backup credit card.
Switch to an existing payment method
If the payment method you want to switch to is already added to your Google billing account:
- From the Admin console dashboard, go to Billing.
Next to your subscription, click Actions Access billing account.
- Under How you pay, click Manage payment methods.
- Locate the credit card or bank account you want to assign as your new primary or backup payment method. Under the payment method name, click the current option (None, Primary, or Backup) and select one of the following:
- Primary: Makes the credit card or bank account your new primary payment method. From now on, Google will start charging this card or account for your automatic payments.
- Backup: Makes the credit card your backup method for automatic payments. If we try to charge your primary method and the charge is declined, we'll charge your backup card, instead.
(Available only for a credit card that isn't currently your primary payment method.)
If you change automatic payments from a bank account that has any pending payments (which appear as in progress on your payments page), the old bank account will still be debited.
