Admin Center tasks
The following table shows the type of changes you can make in Admin Center:

|Managing subscriptions, invoices, and payments||
Subscription: View and manage details about your current subscription, including product and plan types, agent seats, and annual costs. For more information, see Viewing subscriptions.
Payment: Change the payment method associated with your account. Payment choices include: Check, Wire, ACH, Credit Card, Debit Card, or Paypal, depending on your account type. For more information, see Managing payments.
