Keeping your payment information up to date and safe is critical. If you no longer use a particular payment method on Discord, you should remove it from your account. 

This guide will show you how you can remove a payment method from Discord's desktop and mobile app versions. 

Let's get started.

What is Discord?

Discord is an immediate messaging and VoIP social platform that enables communication via voice calls, video calls, text messaging, and media/files. Communication can be private or take place in virtual communities known as "servers". 

Discord works with Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, iPadOS, Linux, and web browsers. As of 2024, the service had over 150 million monthly active users and 19 million weekly active servers. 

It is mostly used by gamers, but the percentage of users interested in other topics is increasing. As of March 2024, Discord is the world's 30th most visited website, with 22.68% of traffic coming from the United States.

Why Should I Remove My Credit Card from Discord?

There are a few reasons you might want to stop using your credit card from Discord:


If you are not planning to use that credit card anymore, deleting it reduces the possibility of fraudulent charges in the case that your account is stolen.

Unexpected Transactions

Having your credit card saved may result in accidental transactions, especially if you have regular subscriptions set up to auto-renew. Removing the card minimises the possibility of unintentional charges.

Switching Payment Methods

You can decide to utilise a different payment method, such as a debit card or PayPal, for future Discord transactions. Removing your previous credit card allows you to better manage your preferred payment method.

Avoiding Challenges

Even if you don't intend to make any transactions right now, some customers prefer to stay worryless which comes with not having their credit card information kept across many web platforms.

How to Remove Your Payment Method from Discord

Things to Consider Before Removing Payment Method from Discord

Consider the following before cancelling your payment method from Discord:

Current Subscriptions

Discord will not allow you to delete a payment method that is associated with a current subscription (such as Nitro). Before you can delete the previous subscription, you must either cancel it or change your payment method.

Future Purchases

If you intend to purchase Discord Nitro or other features in the future, deleting your payment method will require you to re-enter it. Consider whether the convenience of keeping information outweighs the possible safety benefit of deleting it.

Free Trials

If you are presently on a free trial for a Discord service, deleting your payment method could cause the trial to expire early. Before you remove your card details, double-check the trial's terms.

Is Discord Considered a Safe Platform?

Discord has security precautions in practice, but it, like any other online system, is not entirely free of risks. 

Malware sent via suspicious links or file sharing, phishing scams posing as official messages, and harassment or exposure to improper content on specific servers are all possible threats. 

It is essential to be careful about every link you click, to check messages before responding, and to be aware of the servers you join.
