Your account's billing settings apply to every paid feature or product you add to the account. You can manage settings like your payment method, billing cycle, and billing email. You can also view billing information such as your plan, billing date, payment history, and past receipts.

About billing on GitHub

Everything you purchase on GitHub shares your account's billing date, payment method, and receipt.

Viewing your plans and billing date

You can view your account's billing plan and next billing date in its billing settings.

Adding or editing a payment method

You can add a payment method to your account or update your account's existing payment method at any time.

Viewing your payment history and receipts

You can view your account's payment history and past receipts at any time in its billing settings.

Adding information to your receipts

You can add extra information to your GitHub receipts, such as tax or accounting information required by your company or country.

Setting your billing email

Your account's billing email is where GitHub sends receipts and other billing-related communication.

Changing the duration of your billing cycle

You can pay for your account's subscription and other paid features and products on a monthly or yearly billing cycle.

Redeeming a coupon

If you have a coupon, you can redeem it towards a paid GitHub plan.

Troubleshooting a declined credit card charge

If the credit card you use to pay for GitHub is declined, you can take several steps to ensure that your payments go through and that you are not locked out of your account.

Unlocking a locked account

Your account's private repositories are locked when you downgrade your paid plan to a free one, or if your paid plan is past due because of billing problems.

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.
