Setting your personal account's billing email

Your personal account's primary email is where GitHub sends receipts and other billing-related communication.

Your primary email address is the first email listed in your account email settings. We also use your primary email address as our billing email address.

If you'd like to change your billing email, see "Changing your primary email address."
