Changing the funding source for PayPal pre-approved payments


The following instructions will help buyers update their payment method in PayPal (also known as payment source), so that their orders can be charged. This is helpful if you were notified that your payment has been declined or if you need to update an expired/incorrect credit card.

Alternatively, buyers may simply choose to add sufficient funds to their PayPal Balance to cover the cost of the purchase (easiest method).

After making any changes, please notify the seller so that the order can be charged.
