Amazon’s Audible is one of the most popular audiobook sellers in the world.
When people start using Audible, they are usually pretty sure that they will redeem their audiobook credit every month.
New Audible users always have the plan to listen to several awesome audiobooks, but life doesn’t go as per the plans. Your life might get super busy, you are not finding Audible worth or for any other genuine reason, you may want to cancel Audible subscription.
Every application has a targetted audience and the interest of that audience also varies with time. So, if you no longer want to pay a high amount for Audible membership or not liking its recommendations, it’s ok.
Today, I am going to explain how you can cancel your Audible subscription in some easy steps. But before that, let’s understand what cancelling Audible means and is there any alternative way or not.
What Will Happen if I cancel Audible Subscription?
There is much confusion hovering around the topic of cancelling the subscription.
First of all, I would like to confirm that cancelling Audible membership means stopping the monthly recurring charge of 14.95 USD. However, your purchased audiobooks will remain available for you. You will be able to receive audiobooks as gifts from others.
Even, if you plan to return to Audible in future, you will be able to purchase audiobooks on the platform. There will be no restrictions or limitations.
Just make sure to exchange or return Audible audiobooks before cancelling the subscription. Otherwise, you won’t be able to do it later.
Pause Your Audible Subscription
As an alternative to cancelling Audible subscription, you can even pause it.
If you have already bought many audiobooks or can’t find anything to use your credits, there’s a way to pause your subscription. In this way, the monthly recurring charges will stop for three months. But do remember that pausing the subscription will also stop credits for that period. You will start receiving credit only when your Audible membership will be resumed.
Steps to Pause Audible Subscription

- Choose My Account in response to ‘What can we help you with.’
- Click on the Please make a selection dropdown and select Pause Membership.
- Lastly, select chat, Phone or Email (anything) to request to pause your Audible subscription.
