If you want to cancel your Prime membership for any reason, you can get it done. One big reason could be its price. In India, this membership is available with a fee of Rs 329 per three months or Rs 999 per year. However, it is much cheaper inside India than in the US. In the US, this subscription is available for $12.99 (approximately Rs 960) per month. There its annual fee is $119 (approximately Rs.8,760). At this price you might not want to stick with it.
It is worth noting here that from the date for which you have subscribed, even after cancellation, it will continue for that time. It means that for example if you have subscribed for three months and after one month you want to cancel it then even after that it will continue for two months. Therefore, the advantage of canceling the subscription is that after the end of the period when the auto-renewal time occurs, the subscription is closed at that time and the auto-renewal stops. However, customers can ask its customer service department to cancel the subscription through Amazon’s app or website.
Follow these steps if you want to cancel your subscription manually through your mobile app or computer.
