There are times when PayPal fails to renew your premium subscription because there might be an issue with your credit or debit card.

PayPal will try to charge two times in the span of two weeks before your premium subscription gets downgraded to free, and you will get a notice in your email each time it fails to take your payment.

There are several reasons for this issue, but the best way to know is to call your bank account to ask if there are issues with the debit or credit card connected to your PayPal account. If the bank can resolve the issue, then you won’t have to do anything.

However, there might be a need for you to change the card connected to your PayPal account. Here is how:

  1. Log-in to your PayPal account and click Profile.
