When recurring billing is turned on for a Microsoft subscription, you’ll be billed for your subscription on your renewal date.
- Sign in to Services & subscriptions with your Microsoft account. If you have more than one Microsoft account, make sure you're signing in with the one that applies to the subscription you want to set up recurring billing for.
- Locate the subscription you'd like to set up with recurring billing.
- Select Turn on recurring billing.
- If you see an upcoming payment date next to your subscription, you already have recurring billing turned on and you don’t have to do anything else.
- If your subscription has already expired, select Renew to renew your subscription. Recurring billing will be turned on automatically when you renew your subscription.
- If you see Paid with pre-paid card next to the subscription expiration date, you paid for the subscription with a pre-paid code and you can't turn on recurring billing. You can buy a new one at Microsoft Store when the subscription expires.
- Check your inbox for an email that confirms recurring billing. If you don't see it in your inbox, check your junk mail or spam folder.
