- What to Know:
If you want to delete your credit card information from Lyft or update it with a new one, you are at the right place.
This article will discuss the steps to remove credit cards from Lyft and present you with other accepted payment methods which you might not know.
Remove Credit Card From Lyft
Unfortunately, you can’t find any delete option for removing the default credit card or the payment method.
It implies, you simply can’t remove a credit card that serves as your default or primary payment method on Lyft.
However, it doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t delete your credit card information; instead, you may need to add another payment method, make it primary, and then delete the credit card information.
Once you add another payment method and mark it default, you’ll see a large red-colored delete card button.
Furthermore, you can also call your credit card company to cancel the credit card account on Lyft. Another method to remove the old card information is to overwrite the new card details and save it.
How to Add or Update Payment Info
I’ll share how to add and update payment info in Lyft using the mobile app on both Android and iOS devices.
On an iOS device, open the Lyft app and click on the three dots available on the top left side to open the main menu. However, you’ll see three horizontal lines in Android phones.
Here, you need to select the Payment option. You’ll find three types of payment methods, including:
- Cash or gift card
- Credit Card
Click on the desired payment method; for instance, add a credit card. All you need to do is add the first and last name, credit card number, CVV, and expiry date. After inserting all the details, you can press the “Save” button.
However, if you receive a new credit card, you may need to update the existing information. In this case, simply click on the credit information and type in the latest details, and then save
Accepted Payment Methods
The good news is that Lyft accepts all kinds of credit cards, such as:
- American Express
- Visa Master
- Card Discover
Additionally, you can also add Paypal, Google Pay, Apple Pay, Venmo, and other bank account details (if applicable in your city).
How to Use Lyft Without Credit Card
You can use Lyft even if you don’t have a credit card by either adding cash to your Lyft account or buying a gift card certificate.
Yes, you can buy gift cards from Lyft’s website or Amazon using a credit or debit card, or a PayPal account. It depends on you whether to buy a gift amount f $25, $100, or any other amount.
You can get a Lyft gift card via email with a link, containing a code and pin number. Later, open the Lyft app to redeem the gift card. Just tap the menu icon, select Payment, and then “Gift Card” under “Lyft Cash.” Later, enter the gift card number and pin code.
In addition to that, Lyft Cash is another payment method to plan your monthly budget of rides accordingly. All you need to do is to add money to your Lyft account and later pay for your future rides.
To sum up, you simply can’t remove a credit card from Lyft without adding another payment method.
