How do I view, modify, or cancel my pre-approved payments on my PayPal account?

When you set up a pre-approved payment with a merchant, you've authorised the merchant to charge your PayPal account based on the cycles or schedules you’ve agreed with them. Pre-approved payments include recurring payments, subscriptions, automatic billings or instalment plans.

Here’s how to view your preapproved payment information:
  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Click the Payments tab.
  3. Click Manage Automatic Payments under "Pre-approved payments".
  4. Select the merchant’s name whose payment you want to view, modify, or cancel.
  5. Follow the instructions on the page.

If you want to change a card for your pre-approved payments, you'll need to have at least one other card registered in your PayPal account before updating your payment method.

If you have any questions about your pre-approved payment arrangement, please contact the merchant directly. You can find their contact details in the email you received when you signed up for your pre-approved payment or in the relevant transaction details on your Activity page.
