How To Update Your PayPal Payment Method

All PPETN memberships use PayPal’s “preapproved payments” subscription system to auto-renew your membership with dues payments each year.

Often, members need to update their payment information for this preapproved payment (like changing your payment source or updating new credit card details). To make these changes, you’ll need to log in to your PayPal account.

Update Payment Method Details

To update payment method details for any credit card, debit card, or bank account in PayPal, follow this checklist:

  1. Log in to your PayPal account. (Click here to go to PayPal’s login page.)
  2. Click Money on the top menu.
  3. Scroll down to either the Bank or Credit and debit cards sections and click on the payment method you’d like to update.
  4. For credit cards, click Edit and make the changes needed, then click Save.
  5. For bank accounts, you will see a list of all bank accounts and you can ReplaceRemoveConfirmMake Primary, or Link new bank on this page.

Change Payment Method

To change the payment method for your PPETN membership, follow this checklist:

  1. Log in to your PayPal account. (Click here to go to PayPal’s login page.)
  2. Click on Profile at the top right of the page, then click Profile and Settings.
  3. Click My Money on the left side of the page.
  4. Look for the My Preapproved payments section, then click Update on the right side of that section.
  5. Click Professional Photographers of East Tennessee in the Merchants list.
  6. Look for the Payment method section and click Change next to the Backup payment method listed.
  7. Select the payment method you want to use and click Save.

PayPal will use the saved payment method for the next dues payment. If your membership was suspended because dues were not paid as a result of a bad payment method, please contact the Web Editor once you have updated your payment method. The Web Editor will authorize the outstanding dues to be paid, and once paid, your membership will again be in good standing.
