Adding or editing a payment method

You can add a payment method to your account or update your account's existing payment method at any time.

You can pay for GitHub with a credit card or with a PayPal account. When you update your payment method for your account's GitHub subscription, your new payment method is automatically added to your other subscriptions for paid products.

We don't provide invoicing or support purchase orders for personal accounts. We email receipts monthly or yearly on your account's billing date. If your company, country, or accountant requires your receipts to provide more detail, you can also add extra information to your receipts.
