How to: Update Billing Information

MileIQ now offers a billing interface where you can manage and update your subscription information! Depending on how you upgraded, you can update your billing information on the web dashboard or directly through your phone's payment provider.

Web Dashboard

If you upgraded through the web dashboard, a direct upgrade link, or used a discount code, then you can update your billing information directly on the web dashboard. To update your billing information on file, first visit dashboard.mileiq.com and sign in using the same email and password as the MileIQ app.

From there, click on Settings > Subscription Plan > Payment Info > Edit Payment Info

  • If you signed up through iTunes or the Google Play Store, you will be redirected to to update your billing information through the respective service. See below for how to update your billing information through Apple iTunes/App Store or the Google Play Store.

Having trouble updating your billing information on the web dashboard?

If you originally upgraded on the web dashboard and an attempted charge does not go through, you can update your billing information within 15 days of the original failed charge directly through the [MileIQ] Subscription Charge Failed. Please update your billing information emails sent from MileIQ. If the subscription charge does not go through at that time, your premium subscription will terminate at the end of the month and your account will revert to the free 40-drive per month version.

Did you recently receive one or more "Subscription Charge Failed" emails from MileIQ and are unable to update your billing information through the emails? You'll need to reach out to support@mileiq.com or re-upgrade at the beginning of next month to continue your unlimited drives plan.

Please see here for more information on upgrading: How to: Upgrade to Get Unlimited Drives

Upgraded on your Phone?

If you originally upgraded through the Apple App Store or Google Play Store (the default payment methods on iPhones/iPads and Androids) and your payment doesn't go through successfully, Apple and Google notify you to correct the billing information through the appropriate billing service within a few days. If the billing information is not corrected within a few days, then the subscription is automatically cancelled by Apple or Google. (FYI, all your driving logs are safe and secure on your web dashboard).

If payment attempts fail after 7 days through your phone's payment service, then you have a couple options to continue getting unlimited drives:

  1. Reactivate your plan through your original billing service:
  2. Renew your subscription through the web dashboard by logging in with the same email/password as shown in the app. (Your MileIQ email can be found in the MileIQ mobile app by tapping Menu > Account Settings) After logging into the dashboard, simply select the monthly or annual plan and then click the green "Upgrade" button the plan like the following screenshot:
