API: Payment Methods
Payment Methods in Recharge are references to credit cards stored securely on the payment gateway. They can be used for one-time or recurring charges.
Recharge supports an unlimited number of Payment Methods for each customer.
Since they are stored securely on the gateway, Payment Methods cannot be edited. If a customer changes credit card information, you must add a new Payment Method to Recharge and apply the new Payment Method to the Customer's Charge.
