How do I select the default payment method for auto-renewed domains?

Setting up auto-renew for your domains can ensure you never lose a domain! When auto-renew is set up, our system will take care of the renewal for you 15 days before the domain's expiration date. However, for the auto-renewal to be successful, you must have an up-to-date payment method selected.

To select a payment method for your auto-renewed domains, please follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Dynadot account.
  2. Select "Payments" from the left-side menu bar, and click "Domain Auto-Renew" on the right.
  3. Click the "Domain Auto Renew" link.
  4. Select "auto renew" from the top drop-down menu. Then click the blue "Save" button.
  5. There are 4 payment types that you can use for auto-renewals: account credit, credit card, checking account, or linked PayPal account. The default for all accounts is account credit.
  6. If you want to use credit card, you can either select an existing card or enter a new one by clicking "Add Credit/Debit card" in the drop-down under "select card" section*.
  7. If you want to use account credit and it's not already selected, you can select it from the drop-down.**
  8. If you want to use checking account, you can select saved checking account or add a new one. ***
  9. If you want to use your PayPal account, you must link it to our system.****
  10. To apply your auto-renewal payment method changes to any existing auto-renewals, check the "Apply to all auto-renew domains, websites, and website builders" option. Then click the blue "Save" button to save all changes.

If we cannot process your payment, then your domain will not be renewed and you will receive an email from us about it.

  • *If you're using a credit card for your auto-renewals, you will need to make sure your credit card is up-to-date and you may want to take note of the expiration date. We support all currencies when you select credit card as auto renewal payment method (except CNY & IDR, credit card is not supported).
  • **If you're using account credit for your auto-renewals, you need to make sure that you have enough credit to cover your auto-renewals.
  • ***If you're using checking account for your auto-renewals, you need to make sure that your account is active and have enough deposit.
  • ****If you're using your PayPal account, you must successfully link it to your Dynadot account and make sure it remains active.
  • The payment method you choose for auto-renewals is not the same payment method used for expired domain auction auto-pay orders.
