How to Cancel Your Zoom Subscription in a Few Easy Steps

Zoom has become an essential tool for remote work, learning, and staying connected. With flexible pricing plans from basic free to enterprise-level capabilities, it’s easy to sign up without considering if you really need all those features.

Before canceling, take a minute to review your Zoom subscription plan and usage to decide if you should downgrade or switch plans instead of canceling entirely. Downgrading to the free Basic plan still allows hosting 40-minute meetings with up to 100 participants. If you only need to hold small meetings occasionally, this could be enough.

The next paid tier, Zoom Pro, upgrades meeting durations to 24 hours for up to 100 participants for just $14.99/month. This unlocks webinars, cloud recordings, managed domains, company branding, and access to transcript summaries.

For frequent larger meetings, Zoom Business at $19.99/month allows hosting up to 300 participants with dedicated customer support options. At the Enterprise level, custom packages can support unlimited meeting capacity, integration capabilities, and flexible pricing.

How to Cancel Your Paid Zoom Subscription

Ready to cancel your paid Zoom subscription? The process is quick and easy to do through your account settings. Here is the step-by-step process:

  1. Log in to the Zoom Dashboard at zoom.us. Click your profile picture then select “Settings”.
  2. Select the “Billing” tab from the left menu.
  3. Find the plan you want to cancel and click “Cancel Subscription”. Confirm by selecting a reason for canceling when prompted.
  4. Your subscription will remain active until the end of the current billing period. You may continue using Zoom until then.

And that’s all it takes—just a few clicks to cancel a paid Zoom account subscription!

If you opted for an annual plan, reach out to the Zoom support team to request a refund for the remaining unused months in your subscription. Zoom states refund eligibility on a prorated basis.

Alternative Meeting Solutions

Parting ways with Zoom but still need an online meeting solution? Plenty of alternatives exist offering core video conferencing features, often for free or less expensive plans compared to Zoom Pro or Business tiers.

Here are a few top contenders in the video meeting space to consider:

Google Meet: Deep Google integration and unlimited meeting durations make this a great free option if you utilize G Suite apps. Extras like polls, breakout rooms, and Q&A require Google Workplace upgrade plans.

Microsoft Teams: Already using Microsoft 365 or Office 365? Microsoft Teams seamlessly integrates through those platforms with capabilities to schedule and host meetings for up to 250 participants.

Webex Meetings: Cisco Webex focuses on reliable enterprise-level video meeting infrastructure with robust options for large meetings, webinars, screen sharing, messaging, and more.
