How To Cancel

After you must have registered for any of the Amazon Digital Services in the form of membership or subscription, you will be charged periodically. The good news, however, is that it is very easy for you to cancel any of the subscription or membership that you have registered.

If you wish to cancel your subscription at any time, it will stop you from being charged at the renewal period, although you will be able to access your contents until that very subscription has expired. For example, if you cancel your audible subscription of 1 year after only 9 months, you will still continue enjoying the benefits until after the one year. More so, you will have access to the things you have purchased using the subscription even after cancelling it.
