If you no longer want to utilize a service for which you have paid, PayPal makes it simple to stop your recurring subscription payments. Here’s how to do it on your PC in your PayPal account.
You have until the day before the next scheduled payment to cancel a membership. Also, even if you cancel your membership, you must pay for the services you have received.
- Please keep in mind that, as of February 2022, you may only stop payment subscriptions using PayPal’s desktop website. It is not possible to do so using the PayPal mobile app.
PayPal Automatic Payments Should Be Discontinued
To cancel your regular payments, open a web browser on your computer and go to the PayPal website. Log in to your website account.
After logging in, click the gear button in the top-right corner of PayPal.
Click “Payments” in the tab list at the top of the “Settings” page.
Click “Manage Automatic Payments” under the “Automatic Payments” section.
All of your recurring payment services are shown on the left sidebar under “Automatic Payments.” Select the payment that you want to halt here.
- If you don’t see your subscription, scroll down to the bottom of the list and click “See More.”
Your subscription information will be shown in the right pane. Click the “Cancel” button here.
A window will appear asking whether you are sure you want to cancel your automatic payment. Deactivate the “Quicker Checkout” option.
PayPal will cancel your regular payment for the specified service, and you’ll be good to go.
You may restart your subscription in the future by visiting the service provider’s website and re-activating your membership. Alternatively, if you are no longer using PayPal, you should delete your PayPal account.
