Removing a payment method

If you aren't using your payment method for any paid subscriptions on GitHub, you can remove the payment method so it's no longer stored in your account.

If you're paying for your GitHub subscription with a coupon, and you aren't using your payment method for any other paid features or products on GitHub, you can remove your credit card or PayPal information.

If you use a coupon to pay for a subscription, when the coupon expires, your payment method will be charged the full cost of your subscription. If you do not have a saved payment method, your account will be downgraded to GitHub Free for user accounts or GitHub Free for organizations.

Tip: If you downgrade your account to a free product and you don't have subscriptions for any other paid features or products, we'll automatically remove your payment information.
