Payment error or can't save changes

If your subscription is billed through us (WarnerMedia) and you're getting a payment error or can't save your payment info, here are some things to know:

Your card must...

  • Be issued by a U.S.-based bank
  • Support recurring payments (some prepaid cards do not support recurring payments)
  • Support online payments
  • Be one of these cards: Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express

If this info doesn't help, here are some things to try:

Step 1: Verify your payment information

  • Make sure what you’re submitting matches what's on your card: Name, Card Number, Expiration Date, and Security Code (use the Change payment steps above).
  • Make sure the ZIP Code and State match the billing address for your card.

Step 2: Troubleshoot your browser

  1. Try using a different supported browser: Chrome, FireFox, Microsoft Edge, or Safari.
  2. Try using an incognito or private browser window. Here's how:
    • Open a new incognito or private window, then sign in at Choose Edit Payment Method. Enter your payment information and choose Save Changes.
  3. Try using a computer instead of your phone or vice versa.

If these steps don't help, try using another payment method or contact your bank for help.

Use another payment method

Try using a different credit or debit card. You can use any of the following cards: Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.

Contact your bank

Contact your bank or financial institution to find out why the payment method might be failing.
