SoundCloud offers different types of subscription plans, depending on how a person wants to use the service. These are Creator and Listener.
If you are a creator, you can subscribe to Pro Unlimited for $144 per year or Repost by SoundCloud for $30 per year. If you are a listener, you can subscribe to SoundCloud Go for $4.99 per month or SoundCloud Go+ for $9.99 per month.
The advantage is you can try the SoundCloud Pro free trial and enjoy a 30-day money-back guarantee. You can also start a 7-day free trial of SoundCloud Go or try the 30-day free trial of SoundCloud GO+.
SoundCloud also allows you to cancel your subscription anytime.
How to cancel SoundCloud
Here is how you can unsubscribe from the service using different platforms or devices.
If you purchased the service via iOS or Apple App Store, you will have to cancel the plan with Apple directly. SoundCloud cannot help you with refund or cancellation requests if you subscribed using an iOS device.
However, here are the steps provided by Apple Support on the cancellation of services:
- Go to your iPhone, iPod, or iTouch.
- Open Settings.
- Tap your name.
- Tap Subscriptions.
- Select the subscription you want to manage (SoundCloud).
- Tap Cancel Subscription.
If you purchased your plan via the Android app, you cannot cancel it on the application. You will have to unsubscribe using a computer. Here is how:
- Sign in to your account on a computer.
- Go to the Subscriptions page.
- Click on the icon next to your current subscription status.
- Follow the prompts to cancel your plan.
The website will redirect you to a page where you will cancel your subscription. Note that the steps above will allow you to unsubscribe from SoundCloud Go or SoundCloud Go+.
How to cancel SoundCloud Pro or Pro Unlimited
SoundCloud Pro is for creators. If you want to cancel either the Pro or Pro Unlimited version, you will need to access the option using a computer. Then:
- Log in to your account.
- Click on Subscriptions.
- Click the icon next to your current subscription status.
Follow the prompts to cancel SoundCloud Pro or Pro Unlimited.
Can I get a refund from SoundCloud?
SoundCloud does not offer refunds for the period between the cancellation of your membership and the next payment date. Once you cancel your SoundCloud subscription, your account will remain the same until the next renewal date.
That will give you access to all the music on the platform and features such as offline listening and ad-free streaming. After the payment period stops, the service will downgrade your account to free.
The only exception applies to the SoundCloud Pro subscription. In this case, subscribing to the plan gives you a 30-day money-back guarantee.
That means if it is your first time buying the membership, you can cancel it within 30 days of purchase. SoundCloud will refund your money automatically. The whole process can take up to five business days.
How do I take my credit card off of SoundCloud?
You can change your credit card information even after purchasing a plan on SoundCloud. But if you want to take your credit card off of the platform, you will only have to cancel your plan.
That is because you cannot change your credit card information if you have invalidated your subscription.
If you want to take your current credit card off of SoundCloud so that you can use a new one, the best option is to cancel your plan. Here is what to do:
- Go to soundcloud.com/you/subscriptions to cancel your plan.
- Wait until your current plan expires.
- After the expiry, log in to soundcloud.com/pro and choose a new plan.
- Fill out the details required and select your preferred payment method.
Once you buy a new plan, the old credit card information will not be available on your account. You will also have the option of updating your card details.
You can cancel your SoundCloud membership any time after subscribing. SoundCloud offers several plans, including SoundCloud GO, GO+, Pro, and Pro Unlimited.
If you want to end your membership, you will have to access the subscription page via a computer.
But if you subscribed via iOS or Apple App Store, you will have to follow the steps provided by Apple Support on cancellation of services.
