Never Miss a Payment Again with UNS Backup Payment

Nothing is more annoying than your downloads being interrupted because your credit card on your account expires and then your account goes into limbo until you update your payment information. We know how annoying this can be, so we have added a way for you to add a backup payment method. If your current payment method (Visa or Paypal) expires or fails, your backup payment method will take over meaning that your account never gets put on hold or interrupted and your downloads continue without so much as a blip 🙂
