If your credit card has expired, or you simply don’t wish to use it for Amazon purchases, it’s easy to remove your credit cards as well as any other payment methods from your Amazon account. We’ll show you how to do that on your desktop and mobile.

Note: Keep in mind that removing a payment method doesn’t cancel any open orders that use that payment method.

To delete an unwanted payment method using your desktop, open a web browser on your computer and launch the Amazon site. Sign in to your account on the site.

In Amazon’s top-right corner, click “Account & Lists.”

Select "Account & Lists" from the top-right corner.

On “Your Account” page, click “Your Payments” to access your current payment methods.
