I have updated my card details, but the renewal still fails?

Sometimes the renewal will still fail after updating your card details. When this is the case, it’s likely the new card hasn’t been set as default card yet. When the new card hasn’t been set as the default card. Thus the renewal will still be attempted on your old card. To set the new card as default, click on the ‘Set as Default’ link below your new card:
