How do I remove my default payment method from my account? If I remove my default credit card, how will I be charged?

To remove your default payment method, you must add a new payment method to your account, set it as the default payment method, and delete your old payment method.

You can remove your default payment method from your account using the AWS Billing and Cost Management console. If you remove your default credit card from your AWS account without adding another valid payment method and assigning it as the default payment method, the old payment method is charged.

  1. Open the AWS Billing and Cost Management console.
  2. Choose Payment Methods from the navigation pane.
  3. Choose Add a card and set the new payment method as your default payment method. See How do I change the default payment method associated with my AWS account? for more information.
  4. Next to the payment method that you want to remove, choose Delete.
