    I've added a new credit card and tried to delete the old one.  But twice, Jotform has tried to use the old (now invalid card via Paypal, and I can't even see how I can change this, or to charge a credit card directly, on my Jotform billing page at  It says to "please try changing your credit card information below" but there is no link and no way to change it.

    I see that the current subscription is with PayPal. To change the billing from PayPal to credit card, you would need to cancel the existing subscription and then resubscribe with your credit card.

    To cancel the existing subscription, please follow the steps below :

    1. Login into your JotForm account 

    2. Click on Pricing from the top menu bar

    3. You can now click on Downgrade button displayed on Free plan to cancel your current subscription


    Alternatively, you can also cancel the subscription from PayPal by following the steps below :

    1. Login to your PayPal Account

    2. Find the latest payment you've made to JotForm

    3. Click on the subscription number for that transaction

    4. Click on "Cancel Subscription" button

    Once you have cancelled the subscription, you can re-subscribe from our Pricing Page using your credit card.

    Hope this information helps. Please get back to us if you have any questions. We will be happy to help.

    I think I fixed the problem in PayPal, although I
    thought I had done that a couple of weeks ago
    when I added the new credit card. It looks like
    Jotform will try to charge this again in two
    days, so we'll see. I want to make sure, though,
    that I don't lose any form information/content if
    the charge fails to go through again.
    I'm really afraid to follow your procedure of
    cancelling my subscription and then
    re-subscribing, as I don't want to lose the form
    responses that are in my account that are in
    excess of the free account limit.
    I wish you had a way of just changing the payment
    type from PayPal to credit card without having to
    go through all this. It seems too complicated
    (and risky) to cancel my subscription and then
    re-subscribe, to get around a limitation in your
    billing process.
    Thanks anyway for your prompt reply, though.
