All customers in Upodi without a payment method is threated as a manual payment (basic invoice). This is the system default approach. Customers may have multiple payment methods. Whether these are card based payment methods using `VISA` or `Mastercard` or payments are offline payments such as `FI`, `GLN`, `EAN` or `SEPA` - Upodi will handle the payment accordantly.

A payment method is directly connected with a given payment provider. [Read more on payment here](🔗). Register your payment provider before adding payment methods.

## The default payment method

The default payment method determined which payment method to use for given automated actions. A customer can only have one default payment method.

## Adding a new payment method

You can use Upodi to add a new payment method. Simply sign in, find the desired `Customer` and select _Add new Payment method_. Available payment methods are subject to which payment providers you have completed in your setup.

You can also use the API as examplified:

## Overriding the payment method on subscriptions

A subscription may alter the default payment method. This is done by selecting the customer desired payment method on a given subscription, which will alter the default upon billing.
