@barryf I'm changing them to a card that expires in 2017! But whatever happens don't lose the new one :)

@mr_mcd Me too. By 2017 I’m hoping we’re all using TouchID or something clever to replace plastic cards though.

@barryf literally going through this myself right now. Meh!

@mr_mcd Utter waste of a morning! I should’ve set them up with PayPal originally, but it’s a bit late now. Good luck :)

I love web apps and SaaS, except when my card is about to expire and I have 22 (so far) separate billing settings to update. Kill me now.
