Q: Why did I get asked for new billing information?
A: There are a couple of reasons why a member would be asked to
submit new billing information. The first could be that the expiration
date has passed on the credit card on file, and the information
needs to be updated. The other is when the billing information declines
when a charge is put thru. When this happens, the member needs to
update the billing information and make a payment to get current
on their account.
