What is Account Updater?

Spreedly’s Account Updater allows you to always keep your customers’ card details up to date. When your customers’ credit card numbers expire or are updated, Account Updater protects you from the lost revenue and decreased customer satisfaction associated with outdated payment information.

Who is eligible for Account Updater?

Account Updater is an opt-in service available for Spreedly customers on current pricing plans. Sign up now for a free trial account to get started, or reach out to for any questions on your existing trial or pricing.

What are the costs?

There is no up-front cost to turn on the Account Updater feature. Once you opt in, Spreedly will submit all of the cards in your Spreedly vault for updating twice monthly, on the 1st and 15th of every month. For every card that is updated, you will be charged 15¢.

Visit the Account Updater help page for more details.

How does it work?

If you opt into Account Updater, all of your cards stored with Spreedly will be automatically sent to their card networks for updating. However, only Visa and MasterCard cards in the USA, Canada, and parts of the UK are currently eligible for updating. You will only be charged for those cards that are actually updated.

Cards are automatically updated by Spreedly in the background and your customers can continue using your service without interruption.

For more frequently asked questions, visit the Account Updater help page, or the Account Update general page.


Account Updater is one of the most requested features we’ve received since Spreedly began. We’re excited to offer you this competitive feature and we hope it adds value to your business.
