Creator subscriptions FAQs

How do I cancel my Pro subscription?

You can cancel your Pro or Pro Unlimited subscription at any time by going to your Subscriptions page using a computer (this is not possible from a mobile device).

You can find your subscription status by hitting the overflow icon '...' on the right side of the navigation bar.


Click the icon next to your current subscription status:




Then, follow the prompts to cancel your plan.

If you change your mind, you can upgrade back to a Pro subscription at anytime here.

If it's the first time you purchase a Pro subscription and you cancel it within 30 days after purchase, you will be automatically refunded. Please note that this can take up to 5 business days.

If you are not a first-time Pro subscriber and you cancel your plan, it will remain active until its expiry date and all of your features and tracks will still be up as usual until your subscription expires. You can check the "expires on" date here.

Please note: you can only re-subscribe once your current subscription expires.


How do I know if my subscription is canceled?

If your plan status EXPIRES, you will not be charged again in the future. 
Alternatively, if your plan status RENEWS, you have not yet cancelled your plan and will be charged at the next payment date. 


I just purchased a Pro Unlimited subscription but it's not showing on my account, what can I do?

If you have confirmed that you purchased your Pro Unlimited subscription and it doesn't show immediately on your account, please allow a few minutes for it to show up - sometimes it can take a bit of time to update the subscription status.

After a short while, please verify the status on your Subscription page.


I have a Pro Unlimited subscription, when will I be charged?

Our monthly and yearly Pro Unlimited plans both automatically renew. 

However, you can opt out from automatic renewing in your account's Subscriptions page by clicking on the Edit icon and following the prompt to confirm that you would like to stop your recurring payment.


Please note that if you are within our 30 day money back guarantee period for the Pro Unlimited subscription, you will need to wait until this period expires to cancel automatic renewals.  

Monthly payments

If you choose the monthly billing plan, your account will be billed automatically every 30 calendar days - the payment may not fall on the same date each month. In the event of a billing failure, you will receive an email.

Yearly payments

If you choose the annual billing plan, you will be charged every year after your initial purchase. 

You can see when the plan renews automatically each month/year by logging in your account and going to your Subscriptions page.

What happens when I downgrade from a Pro subscription to a Basic plan?

When you downgrade to a Basic plan, your oldest uploads over the free subscription limit (180 minutes) will be hidden from listeners. 

Don't worry though, nothing is deleted from your account. You will be still be able to view these hidden tracks on your Tracks page.

All your hidden tracks along with their stats and comments will be saved so that if you choose to go back to Pro, everything will be restored just as it was before.

You are on a yearly payment cycle

You will be able to specify your monthly or yearly Pro Unlimited preference on the following page.
