  2. Select Remember this card for future orders if you'd like us to save the card details.
  3. Review your order, including postage. Then select Confirm and pay.

Updating a saved credit or debit card

You can update your credit or debit card information at any time:

  1. Go to the Account - opens in new window or tab section of My eBay, then select Personal Information.
  2. In the Financial Information section, under Checkout saved payment methods, select Edit next to the credit or debit card you want to change.
  3. Enter your updated information, and select Continue.
  4. After reading the Credit or Debit Card Usage Agreement, choose Authorise credit card or Authorise debit card.
