Troubleshoot a refund sent to a closed account

If the account you paid with is closed or your card number has changed, you’ll receive an email to update your payment information. If you haven’t received a refund or an email from Google within 15 days, contact your bank account or card issuer. Your bank account or card issuer may hold the funds and be able to arrange a transfer.
