Plenty of Fish is a popular dating site, and one of its big attractions is that it’s free for some users and cheaper overall than other dating sites. But when a dating platform does its job well, you typically don’t need that subscription forever.
So, if you’re looking for information about how to cancel your subscription, we’ll cover the main ways you can cancel your subscription, along with anything else you need to know about having a Plenty of Fish membership.
Plenty of Fish Subscription Costs
For the moment, we’re focusing on the Premium POF membership options because that’s the membership tier that is generally available right now. They are also rolling out POF Plus, but that membership tier is only regionally available.
In addition, POF does explicitly say that their membership subscriptions can be priced differently depending on where you are. So, if these prices look off, you’re probably getting regional pricing.
The good news is that when we’re talking about how to cancel your POF membership, the process is going to look the same even if you are in one of their regional pricing markets.
So, here’s what it costs to get a POF membership.
|3 Months||6 Months||12 Months|
|Premium POF Subscription||$59.99||$89.99||$119.99|
|Cost Per Month||$20||$15||$10|
Upgrading to a paid membership is optional with Plenty of Fish, but it does come with some perks that can make finding dates a lot easier. Here are some of the perks that come with getting a membership:
- Unlimited likes
- Extended profile viewing
- First look at newly joined members
- Read receipts
- No ads
- Additional first contacts
- Interested In Me (a place to see everyone interested in you)
- Username-based search
As an alternative to subscribing, POF users can also buy tokens that can be used to get access to specific premium benefits piecemeal. That way, you can choose the benefits you want or need without having to pay for benefits you don’t need.
Tokens are one-time purchases and are non-refundable. POF memberships are also non-refundable, but you’ll continue getting your subscription benefits until the end of your subscription period when you cancel.
|Number of Tokens||Cost||Cost Per Token|
Subscriptions are also auto-renewing on POF. So, when you’re sure you don’t need your subscription anymore, it’s important to go in and cancel because they will not cancel that subscription for you.
How You Cancel Your POF Subscription
Here are the easiest ways to cancel your POF subscription, no matter how you signed up.
Cancel Your POF Subscription On POF.com
One of the most straightforward ways to cancel your POF subscription is directly on your computer on the main website. Here’s how:
- Go to POF.com and log in to your account.
- Go to the Manage Account tab.
- Under the Membership section, select Account Type.
- In the Account Type menu, there is a My Membership section. Select either cancel-membership if you want to completely cancel your subscription or re-subscribe if you want to change your subscription tier in regions that have both the Premium and Plus tiers.
That’s it. As always, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on your bank account and any email addresses associated with your account to make sure you don’t get hit with any additional subscriptions or fees.
How To Cancel Your POF Account Through The Google Play App
If you subscribed to POF through the Google Play App or primarily use POF on the app, you can also cancel your subscription there.
- Load into the Google Play app on your device
- Tap on your account profile icon on the top right-hand side of the screen.
- On your account page, there is a Payments & Subscriptions option – tap on that.
- Scroll to your POF subscription and tap on it.
- In the information tab that opens, hit cancel the subscription.
As a note, unlike cancelling your POF membership directly on the site, you won’t have the option to switch membership tiers. Cancelling through Google is going to deauthorize Google from paying that subscription, but it won’t go directly through POF’s system and give you more options. If you just want to change to the lower level of membership, you have to go through POF directly.
Cancel Your POF Membership Through The Apple App Store
Similar to the Google Pay Store, you can also cancel your POF subscription through the Apple App Store if you originally signed up for the service on Apple or pay for your subscription through Apple Pay.
- On your Apple device, go to the Settings menu
- Tap on your Apple ID
- Go to the Media & Purchases option
- Tap on the View Account option
- Go to Subscriptions
- Scroll to your POF subscription
- Tap on ‘Cancel Subscription’ to deauthorize Apple from paying for POF
Like cancelling through Google, you should still be able to access your subscription benefits until your subscription date passes.
Cancelling POF Subscription Via Live Chat
In addition to the other options to cancel your POF subscription, you can also do it through a live chat with their customer service representatives, which can be helpful if you want to make sure the company knows why you’re changing or cancelling your subscription.
- Go to POF.com and log in to your account.
- Click on the black Support button in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen.
- Either tell the chatbot that you want to cancel your subscription or click on the black Get In Touch button in the bottom right-hand corner of the chat box to speak with an agent and explain that you would like to cancel your subscription.
Live chat is available between 8 AM-1 PM PST.
Frequently Asked Questions About Cancelling Your POF Membership
Here are some quick questions you might have about your POF subscription.
Can You Go Back To A Free Membership After Subscribing To POF?
Yes, you can change the details and level of your subscription at any time.
Can You Get The Same Benefits From POF Tokens As A POF Subscription?
You can get many of the same benefits from tokens, but it’s more economical to subscribe if you want to get more than a couple of the benefits because the cost of tokens can get more expensive than the subscriptions if you’re looking for more benefits.
The Wrap Up
The good news is that POF not only offers plenty of options to cancel your subscription but also makes it relatively easy to do. All you need to do is make it clear that you want to cancel your subscription or change the details of your subscription, and you’re in the clear.
