If you are an avid listener, you may get tempted by Audible as it is the world’s largest audiobook and podcast platform. This Amazon-owned service is the biggest provider of original spoken-word entertainment. This great source of audio entertainment charges $14.95 per month for their cheapest plan. The prices go up when you choose a plan with more credits.

Or, when you have started an Audible Free Trial, but don’t want to pay for their subscription, you’d have to find the ‘stop’ button.

Steps to Cancel Audible Subscription on PC
It is very simple to cancel your Audible subscription by using your computer. You just need to turn on your PC and follow these simple steps:
Step-1: Open a browser and visit Audible’s desktop website. Now sign in to your account.
Step-2: Once you have logged, you will see your name present at the top of the page. Look just next to your name, there is a down arrow. Hover your cursor over the arrow and click on ‘Account Details‘ from the drop-down menu.
Alternatively, you can click here.
Step-3: On the Account Details page, you will find the information about your plan and credits. Just below the plan, you will find the ‘Cancel Membership’ button. Click on it.
Note: You will lose all your unused credits when you cancel your Audible plan. So, if you have some unused credits, use them to buy some audiobooks. You can keep the audiobooks even after canceling your membership.
Step-4: Once you click on ‘Cancel membership,’ Audible will ask you a reason for the cancellation. You can choose any suitable reason for your choice. I’d recommend that you select ‘It’s too expensive,’ so they may consider lowering their price. After selecting a reason, click on ‘Continue canceling.’
Step-5: After continuing, Audible will give a final try to make you stay. It will present to you two options that you can choose instead of cancelation- 1) switch your plan or 2) pause your membership. If you like any of these, you can choose them. But, if you want to continue with cancelation, click on ‘Finish canceling.’
Step-6: The next and final page will show you the ‘We’re sorry to see you go‘ message. If you can see it, you have successfully canceled your membership. Don’t get confused by seeing your plan details below as they will be available until the next billing date.
That’s it. This is how you cancel your Audible subscription. Once you do that, you will not be able to access their services. Make sure you have finalized the decision before following the procedure mentioned above.
