How do I add a backup auto-renew payment method for a group of domains?

Setting up your auto-renew payment method for a group of domains is a great way to prevent your domains from expiring, but adding a backup payment method can provide even more comfort in ensuring you don't lose your domain names! If your domains are set to auto-renew and your default payment fails, we'll try processing your auto-renewals with your backup payment method.

To set up a backup auto-renew payment method for a group of domains, please follow these steps:
  1. Sign in to your Dynadot account.
  2. Click "My Domains" and then "Manage Domains" from the left-side menu bar.
  3. Check the boxes next to the domain names for which you want to set the auto-renew payment method. To select all your domains, check the box at the top of the frame.
  4. Click "Action" and then "Renew Options" from the drop-down.
  5. Check the box next to "Add a backup payment method" and select your backup payment type.
  6. Click "Save Settings" to save your changes.
  • Your backup payment method must use the same currency as your primary payment type.
  • At the moment, there are 4 payment types used for auto-renewals. You can choose account credit, credit card, checking account, or linked PayPal account (assuming you already added a credit card, checking account, or linked PayPal account).
  • You will need to make sure your credit card is up-to-date or that you have enough account credit to cover future auto-renewal orders.
  • If we cannot process your payment, then your domain will not be renewed and you will receive an email from us about it.
  • The payment method you choose for auto-renewals is no longer the same payment method used for auto-paying expired domain auction orders.
