How to Remove Credit Card info from Facebook?

How to Remove Credit Card info from Facebook: Facebook advertising is the best and most cost-effective way to promote your online business. To advertise on Facebook, you must initially provide your credit card information. After doing so, you can promote your online business on Facebook. Additionally, Facebook stores your credit card information in your Facebook Ads account for future transactions.

As you advertise on Facebook, the platform deducts money from your credit card periodically. Many times, users want to remove their credit card information from Facebook but find it challenging to do so. This is because, on Facebook, you cannot delete credit card information while there is an outstanding balance. I’ve experienced this myself.

Due to security concerns, I wanted to remove my credit card information but was unable to do so because of the outstanding balance. You can only remove your credit card information when there is no outstanding amount. If you wish to remove your credit card information with an outstanding balance, you will need to deactivate your Facebook Ads account. However, I didn’t want to deactivate my Ads account. Therefore, for account security, I chose to change the account password.

While changing the password of my Facebook account, I discovered an option to remove credit card information. I successfully removed my credit card without deactivating the Ads account. In this article, I will guide you on how to remove your credit card information from your Facebook Ads account, both with and without deactivating your Facebook Ads account.
