Cancel Canva Subscription

    Canva is a graphic design tool that enables you to make professional posters, videos, presentations, and social media posts. With Canva, you can use readymade templates or create something yourself. But what about when the design tool isn’t helping you much? Then it’s time to learn how to cancel a Canva subscription.

    Canva Cancel Subscription Options: Learning Your Plan Type

    Before you can figure out how to cancel Canva, it’s important to know what kind of plan you have. Realistically, there are only two plans that charge you any money and two plans that have to be canceled if you don’t want to be charged.

    Canva FreeThis lets you design anything you want for free but has limited usage and tools available
    Canva Pro$119.99 per year, per person
    Canva for Teams– $149.90 per year for a small team of up to 5 people – $874.90 per year for a medium team of up to 10 people – $3,049.90 per year for up to 25 people – $6,424.90 per year for up to 50 people
    Canva for EducationThis is free for K-12 teachers and students, but you have to be eligible.
    Canva for NonprofitsThis is also free for qualifying nonprofits, but you have to apply.

    How Do I Cancel My Canva Subscription But Still Use Services?

    Canva has a free trial option where you can use the Canva Pro benefits like:

    • Magic Resize

    • Brand Kit

    • Premium Templates

    • 100+ million stock videos, photos, and audio files

    This option gives you 30 days to try out the Pro features and see if the upgrades are worth it. However, like all “free” trials, you still have to sign up by creating an account and adding a payment method that will theoretically be charged should you choose to continue.

    If you decide you don’t want to continue with the service, you have to cancel Canva subscription options before the 30-day trial expires; otherwise, it will automatically charge you for the month or year, depending on the payment schedule you set.

    2. Select Billing and Plans.

    3. Tap the three dots that indicate more options.

    Cancel Canva or Change Billing Options: What Are My Choices?

    Before you dive into the world of Canva subscription cancel policies, the company offers different billing options that you can use if you have a Pro account.

    On average, individuals and teams save 16% with annual subscriptions.

    So, you might have set up your membership to save by charging annually, but now that annual flat fee is a bit out of reach. In this case, you can set up your subscription to bill you monthly. This means you can use the free trial, and then it will automatically charge each month thereafter.

    The reverse is also true; you can save more money by setting up your account to charge annually instead of monthly if that is what you currently have.

    Quick Tips

    How Do I Cancel My Canva Subscription Online?

    If you purchased your Canva subscription through the Google Play or App Store for iPhones, then your Canva subscription cancellation process must be facilitated through the app, not online.

    Who Can Cancel Canva Accounts?

    If you have a Pro account, you can cancel. If you have a team account, only the owner or administrator can cancel or pause it.

    How Far In Advance Do I Need to Cancel Canva Subscription Plans?

    Canva recommends you cancel at least one business day before the auto-renewal date. You can find this date in your account settings.

    Can I Pause a Canva Account?

    Need a break? You can pause your plan if you need a quick break, and it will pause any recurring charges. Note this also pauses your access to the features, so it works best if you use it when going on vacation or when you aren’t planning to use your Canva account for work. Freelancers can consider this option if they only want to pay monthly for the service when they have clients who need graphic design work.

    Remember that you can pause for three months before you cancel, but make sure you either continue with the service or cancel your subscription after your pause because Canva will automatically renew once the pause period ends.
