Change the default credit card in your GoDaddy account

1Change credit card on GoDaddy - Step 1

When you purchase a domain with GoDaddy, you'll be able to add a PayPal account to process the payment, or a personal credit card. That choice becomes your default payment method, and you'll be charged yearly for your domain (or other product / service you bought from the company). This tutorial explains how to change the default payment used in your GoDaddy account.

The next screen shows all products you currently have: in my case, it's just domains, and I want to change the default credit card for all of them. Check each individual checkbox, or click Select All at the top to update your default payment method for everything (you can always uncheck items afterwards).
