Changing the limit on a card

You can set a credit limit on a card when you initially create a card. To change the limit after a card has been created, use the PATCH /cards/{card_id} operation and provide the credit_limit parameter as shown in the table below.

🚧

Note

The sum of all supplementary card credit limits must be less than the parent card limit.
