You can designate a primary billing method and keep other billing methods on file as backups. You can also designate multiple primary billing methods across different teams.

To change, edit, or remove a billing method go to Settings > Billing & Payments. Only an alternative billing method may be removed. To remove a primary billing method, add an alternative billing method, then set it as your primary billing method.
