Method of payment - add or update your credit card or bank account information

Alerts and notices

Some products or services - such as monthly Web Services fees or electronic filing - require you to keep a method of payment on file with Thomson Reuters. Services are billed automatically when you incur charges. You can also add an automatic payment account for services without this requirement, such as for technical support invoices.

Modifying your firm's payment methods requires a Thomson Reuters ID with administrative privileges. For details, see Creating and managing login information for the CS website. As a CS Web administrator, to update payment information, complete the following steps:

  1. To access My Account, click Log in on the top right of In the Access your web accounts section, click Sign in under "CS Professional Suite, Onvio" and then log in using your Thomson Reuters ID.
  2. Click Manage Payment Options under the My Orders and Payments section to open the Manage Payment Options page. Show me.
  3. On the Manage Payment Options screen, to modify your preferred method of payment click Add or Edit, enter the required information, and click save to complete your changes.


  • If you are changing payment information for a product or service, such as your PRP charges, first add the new account information, then click edit to remove the old account.
  • To add a new account, click Add in the appropriate section and enter your account information. Mark the appropriate use for the new account, and click save to complete your changes. Show me.
