Accepted payment methods for AOL services

AOL securely stores your payment method for all the paid AOL services you enjoy. While we do accept most major credit cards, we can't take cash, checks, money orders, or prepaid credit/gift cards.

Accepted payment methods

Credit or debit cards

  • American Express
  • Visa (credit or debit)
  • Discover (credit or debit)
  • MasterCard (credit or debit)
  • PayPal (for most online purchases)

Direct debit is no longer available for active accounts, however, it can be used to pay past due balances, with a $7 fee.

Entering your payment info

When adding a new payment method, keep the following in mind:

  • Enter your card number without hyphens.
  • Check that the expiration date you enter matches the info on your card.
  • Make sure the billing address you entered matches exactly what's on record with your bank.
