AliExpress has included in its platform different payment methods. Even so, one of the most used by users is the payment by credit or debit card. For this reason, some users have the option of attaching different data from various cards to their accounts.
Among so many options, it can be easy to get lost and perhaps enter a wrong number, change your card, or simply no longer want to use it to make purchases. Whatever your situation is, don’t worry, you can delete it. We’ll show you how.
How can you remove the card from your AliExpress account?
Having the card directly saved in our account saves us a lot of time when shopping, but it can also get you to make mistakes when choosing exactly which card you want to use for your transaction. It’s best to have one or two saved, so if you have more, we suggest you delete some accounts. We explain all the steps below.
From the AliExpress website
It’s always easier to make any exchange transaction from the web… That’s why we give you the option to do the whole procedure yourself, following these steps:
After you have logged in to your AliExpress account, go and click on the section that says “Account” (top right).
After the whole menu is displayed, the next step is to go to the “Payment” section. Once you click on that tab, the portal will automatically direct you to the Alipay website.
Within the official Alipay website, you’ll have to look for a button at the top that says, “Manage your card”. Click on this icon to be able to see your credit or debit cards linked to the AliExpress shopping portal.
Once all the information about your cards associated with the site is displayed, you can select the one you want to remove by clicking on “Remove”. And that’s it! All you have to do now is confirm by clicking on “Remove” again when the confirmation screen appears.
If you don’t want to waste time going through this process manually, you can go directly to the Alipay website by clicking here.
Remember that once you remove a specific card, if you want to use it again later to make a purchase, you’ll have to charge it manually when you cancel the purchase.
From the AliExpress app
Below we’ll describe the sequence of steps you must follow to successfully delete a card linked to AliExpress from the app… It should be noted they’re generally the same steps, the only thing that changes is the location of some buttons in the application.
First, you have to download the application offered by the Chinese giant for iOS and Android mobiles.
Once the previous step is completed, you’ll have to log in to your account.
Then, you have to go to the “My Account” section, this option is located at the bottom right of the screen.
After you have logged in to your account, click on “Alipay” to access the possibility of editing this field.
When you access your Alipay account section, you’ll see a list of all your linked credit or debit cards (you can add as many as you want).
But as we reminded you in the section above, having too many cards can sometimes cause confusion… so if you only have one, it’ll be easier to locate it.
Now click on the button that says “Organize”.
As in the procedure through the web page, the only thing that remains for you is to perform the last step, which is to select the card you want to delete. Remember to click on “Delete” and then confirm again your decision to delete the record.
