How do I place a stop payment on recurring credit card transactions?

There are some things to consider before you place a stop payment on a recurring credit card transaction:

  • Transactions already in process or completed can't be stopped. Once it’s posted, you may be able to dispute the charge. See also: How do I dispute a transaction on my credit card?
  • To stop a scheduled transaction, you'll need to submit the request at least three business days before the scheduled charge date. 
  • Stopping a recurring charge doesn’t change any agreements you have with the merchant. Reaching out to them can help avoid penalties or fees they may charge.
  • Depending on the type of account you have, there may be a fee for your request. If there’s a fee, you’ll see the details after you tell us about the transaction.
