How to Delete Your Old Visa Checkout Account

Before the advent of digital wallets, online shopping brought a checkout experience that required shoppers to input their credit card information for every online transaction. Visa Checkout, introduced in 2014, offered a solution for online shoppers looking to speed up the purchasing process. It became a popular choice for quick payments on various websites. But when a service like Visa Checkout ends up checking out for good, what happens to its millions of registered user accounts?

Unmonitored inactive accounts are vulnerable to fraud and identity theft, leading users to learn . If you opened a Visa Checkout account and need to remove all traces of your now-defunct account, you might have a hard time figuring out how to delete it. Delete Accounts from DoNotPay makes cleaning up old accounts easy from start to finish.

Aside from deleting your Visa Checkout account, we can also assist you in removing your accounts in:

What Is a Visa Checkout?

Visa Checkout is a free online payment option that uses your email address to complete purchases with participating retailer websites. Account users preload their credit cards with their information and shipping details to use Visa Checkout's secure verification process to complete their online transactions. Along with Visa cards, your Visa Checkout account saves any major credit or debit card to your profile, including Mastercard, Discover, and American Express cards.

As one of the first digital wallets, Visa Checkout became popular because of its ease of use and wide assortment of participating retail partners. By opening a Visa Checkout account, users are no longer required to store their credit card details on multiple websites. Visa Checkout worked across the web, giving users the ability to check out when shopping online for the following:

  • Apparel and Retail
  • Children's Goods
  • Entertainment
  • Food and drink
  • Home and electronics
  • Specialty and gifts
  • Travel (airlines & hotels)

However, the service is still susceptible to problems leading users to learn .

Why Is Visa Checkout No Longer Active?

According to a 9to5 Google report in June 2019, Visa Checkout discontinued its partnership with Samsung Pay and planned to rehaul its online payment system to add more security. With Google Pay integrating with Paypal, it was announced that Visa Checkout would be shutting down to roll out a new EMV Secure Remote Commerce (EMV SRC) option. In January 2020, Visa Checkout was officially replaced by Visa Click to Pay.

Why Should I Close My Visa Checkout Account?

When an operation like Visa Checkout becomes inactive or rolls over into a new service, your registered user account may not be deleted. Here are three reasons to consider in having your old account removed:

  1. Protecting Your Financial Data – All your credit card information and data is stored within Visa Checkout's virtual system. Regardless of security claims, unmonitored financial accounts are susceptible to online hackers exploiting your data. Better to remove these files than leave them unattended.
  2. Outdated/Inaccessible Email – If you no longer have access to the email address associated with your Visa Checkout account, you'll have trouble completing any purchases through the one-click checkout process. Furthermore, you'll need access to that email address to authenticate or reset your Visa Checkout profile login information.
  3. Alternative Payment Options – Digital wallets are getting easier to use every day. Even primary competitors, like Masterpass and Amex Express Checkout, are streamlining to a similar "click-to-pay" checkout process. Keep the one you use, and delete the ones you don't.

How Can I Delete My Old Visa Checkout Account on My Own?

If you're looking for a way to close your account, you'll find the process slightly more involved than Visa Checkout's one-click solution to shopping. Here are the steps you need to take to request for account deletion:

  1. Sign in to your Visa Checkout account with your login credentials.
  2. Click on the "Customer Support" option.
  3. Select "More" under the "Troubleshooting" section.
  4. Click on "Problem with your account."
  5. Now go to the "Close account" section.
  6. Finally, follow the on-screen instructions to delete your account.

While this may seem straightforward, these account deletion steps don't walk you through how to remove each credit card stored in your profile. You could also face additional roadblocks if you don't have access to your Visa Checkout login information. Luckily, password retrieval assistance and account deletion services can be offered by DoNotPay.

Alternative Ways to Delete Your Account

The last thing you want to do in deleting your account is to remember your old login details. However, if you want to take that path, here are some things you may do:

Password ManagerYou’re lucky if you have used a password manager for a long time. Open your password manager and locate the account you want to delete. It’s too easy to log back into the account and delete it.
EmailAccess the email you have used to register for the account. Check if you have saved a copy of your login details to your inbox folder.
Recovering PasswordsAccess the website where you want to delete your account. Click on “Forgot Password?” and follow the prompts. Hope that the mobile number or email address you are using now is the same as what is registered on your account.

If you don’t want to do the above-stated processes, let DoNotPay do the work for you.
