Bluehost accepts a range of payment types. You can purchase a new account or renew an existing account using the types of payment methods listed below.

Please take note of the following updates:

  • New sign-ups: We no longer accept checks, money orders, purchase orders, or wires as forms of payment for new sign-ups. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
  • Renewals: For renewals, we accept wires as a payment method. Please ensure that the wire payment is for the renewal of your subscribed services.

Credit Card

Bluehost accepts the following credit cards:

  • American Express
  • Discover
  • Master Card
  • Visa

New Account

Credit card is the default payment option during the sign-up process. If you wish to pay via card, type in the card number, expiration date, and CVV2 code. The payment will process once you click Next.

Note: The credit card used to purchase the account will be the default payment method on file. It can be updated at any time in your account profile.


Once the account has been set up, all new purchases and renewals are processed through the shopping cart. You can use your existing card or select Use New Credit Card if you wish to use a new credit card or Use PayPal to pay via PayPal. Then, follow the directions on your screen to proceed with payment.

For instructions on renewing our services or products, see our step-by-step guide on how to use the renewal center.


Payments using a credit card or PayPal account can be made online. At this time, we can only accept instant payments, which means you must have a bank account or credit card directly linked to your PayPal account for the payment to process successfully.

By using your PayPal account with Bluehost, you agree to set PayPal as your default payment method for all future auto-renewals. This can be updated at any time within your PayPal account. If you choose to add a credit card to the account, it will be set as the default payment method for all auto-renewals, and your PayPal account will be used as a secondary payment method if the primary method fails.

New Account

To sign up for a new account using PayPal, click the More payment options link under billing information and select Pay With PayPal before clicking Next. You will be directed to log into your PayPal account to complete the payment process.


To renew an existing service with PayPal, click the renew button on the product you would like to renew, then select Use Paypal under Payment Information. You will be directed to log into your PayPal account to complete the payment process.

Checks (For renewals only)

We accept checks for renewal payments. If you prefer to pay using a check, we've provided instructions below.

Our prices are subject to change at any time and without warning. However, the rate quoted on the invoice will continue to be honored as long as the payment is received by the due date or within 30 days of the date it was issued.

Services renewing on a monthly basis require an active credit or debit card or PayPal account on file for automated renewals.

Bluehost payment options include a variety of methods for both new account sign-ups and renewals, which ensures your convenience and flexibility. Accepted methods include credit cards (American Express, Discover, MasterCard, Visa), and PayPal for all transactions. For renewals, Bluehost accepts checks and wire transfers.

Users can easily enter their credit card information during the sign-up process and update it at any time. For successful processing, PayPal requires customers to link their bank account or credit card for an instant payment.

For those who prefer to use checks for renewal payments, Bluehost provides clear instructions to ensure the process is smooth and efficient. Bluehost guarantees that the rates quoted at the time of invoice issuance will be honored if payments are made by the due date or within a 30-day grace period, even if prices change.
