How do I cancel a PayPal subscription or recurring payment?

Paypal does not make it easy to cancel a recurring subscription as a buyer and it makes sense because Paypal makes money per transaction. Cancelling a subscription in paypal with a merchant cancels all future scheduled payments of that subscription to that merchant. A subscription can be cancelled up until three business days before the next scheduled payment.

  • Log in to your PayPal account.
  • Click Profile near the top of the page.
  • Click My money.
  • Click Update beside ‘My pre-approved payments.’
  • Click the name of the subscription you wish to cancel
