Can I use my cards for subscriptions?
Yes, you are able to use your Debit Card or Credit Card to make regular payments to a subscription service. By subscribing to a paid service or product you allow the retailer to have a 'continuous authority' to take payments from your card. This is an agreement you make with a retailer.
You should only give your card details to a retailer you trust.
Before you give any card information you should be aware of the terms and conditions of the agreement with the retailer or subscription service such as:
- Length of time of the subscription and if there is a minimum term
- If the amount of the subscription increases over time, this can occur when:
- a free trial period expires.
- the initial offer period ends. The price for some yearlong subscription services, for example, can be lower in the first month(s) then full price for the remaining period.
