You can do this by selecting the card from the drop-down menu that appears after you select Manage Payments.

How do I change my Apple ID rescue email address?

If you are using two-factor authentication, you will not have the option to use a rescue email; however, if you are not using 2FA, this is how you can add or alter the rescue email. Sign into your Apple ID on and go to the Sign-In and Security > Rescue Email menu option (you may be asked to enter your Apple ID password or answer security questions). You can set up a new rescue email by selecting the Add email option, or you can input a new email address to replace the previous one. In either scenario, Apple will send a verification email to the address that you have supplied. After receiving the email, you will be prompted to input the verification code and then click Continue.
