I added a new payment method to my AWS account, but my old payment method was charged. Why, and how can I avoid this in the future?

Make sure that you set the new payment method as the default payment method. You can add multiple payment methods to an account, but only the default payment method is charged for AWS services.

For instructions on how to set a payment method as the default payment method, see Managing Your AWS Account.

payment method, credit card, default
