The most natural, and arguably elegant, way of phrasing it would be:

"Jeg betaler foreldrene mine med kredittkort."

But you could also opt to just change an ending in the original sentence:

"Jeg betaler med kredittkort til foreldrene mine."

The tapping test lacks an apostrophe, so the possessive can't be indicated. - flagging this up here rather than reporting it, as it may be a structural issue that you can't do anything about.
