If you have recurring subscriptions to online services, it can be challenging to remember and make regular payments at the appropriate time.
While some financial banks and tools offer the ability to track recurring payments, PayPal has a subscription feature that allows it to automatically make payments on your behalf each month without your intervention.
Whether you have a recurring subscription to Netflix or your favorite charity, PayPal’s subscriptions are easy and secure, making sure your money is sent at the exact time every month until you make any change.
If you want to cancel any of your PayPal subscriptions, you can, but you’ll need to use a web browser (Chrome, Safari, Firefox), as this feature is unavailable in the app. Just read on and follow the steps below.
How to cancel a PayPal subscription to an online service
1. Go to PayPal.com on any web browser and login using your email and password.

3. Click on Payments in the blue menu bar at the top of your screen.
