14. In the middle of the Billing Overview screen, you will see Auto Recharge. Click Enable Auto-Recharge.

15. On the Configure Auto-Recharge pop-up, click Enabled. Select the "If the balance falls below" dollar amount. Select the Recharge the balance to dollar amount. Select a payment method. Click Save.
