  • Manage Credit Card: If you purchased a service with your Credit Card, the current credit card will be on file and displayed under “Current Payment Method Details”.  Hostwinds will only store one credit card on file at a time. Entering a new Credit Card will remove and replace the payment information of an existing Credit Card. 
  • PayPal Billing Agreements:  A PayPal Billing Agreement is a pre-approved automatic payment method that Hostwinds requires to be in place to pay via PayPal.  Clicking on this option will display the current agreement on file, or allow the creation of one by clicking on the “Create New Billing Agreement” button.
  • Account Credits and Add Funds: The entire Account Credit balance may be viewed from this page. This would include any account credit that had been purchased or issued by our Billing Team.  The ability to increase the funds is given by clicking on the “Add Funds” button. This will allow for an Add Funds invoice to be generated and once paid, the balance would increase.
