Will my paid subscription automatically renew on Substack?

If you're a reader with a monthly or annual paid subscription to a Substack publication, your subscription will automatically renew. You'll receive an email reminder about a week before your subscription is set to renew.

To stop your paid subscription from renewing, you'll need to cancel your subscription before the renewal date by following these steps:  How do I cancel my paid subscription?

Once you cancel your subscription and it expires at the end of the billing cycle, you won't be charged on the next billing date. Your paid subscriber status will automatically change to a free subscriber.

Tip: If you bought a gift or donation, those subscriptions will not automatically renew.
