You can set up payment methods that you use for all sites you own, or site-specific payment methods.

Accepted Payment Methods

Sites purchased online through the Pantheon Site Dashboard accept credit card payments only. Pantheon does not currently accept alternative methods of payment for online site purchases (e.g., checks, PayPal, etc.).

 Note

Payment for a site can't be split among payment methods. This means that your payment can only come from one card at a time.

Personal Payment Methods

Personal payment methods can be used on all sites you own. Personal payment methods are managed via your Personal Workspace.

Add Personal Payment Method

To add a payment method:

  1. Go to your personal workspace.

  2. Select Settings, then select Payment Methods.

  3. Click + Add Payment Method.

  4. Enter the card information, then click Add New Card.

Update Personal Payment Method

  1. Go to your personal workspace.

  2. Select Settings, then select Payment Methods.

  3. Click View Details for the payment method you want to edit.

  4. Click Actions, then click Edit.

  5. Update the card information, then click Save New Changes.

Delete Personal Payment Method

All sites must be disassociated from the card before it can be deleted.

 Warning

Deleting a card profile from your account will also delete its associated billing history (invoices and transactions). Go to View Invoices to download past invoices before deleting your credit card profile.

  1. Go to your personal workspace.

  2. Select Settings, then select Payment Methods.

  3. Click View Details for the payment method you want to edit.

  4. Click Actions, then click Delete.

    The history will show the last 100 transactions.

Site-Specific Payment Methods

Site-specific payment methods can only be used on the site on which they are defined.
