How to terminate your ChatGPT Plus subscription

There are a few things you should know about how to cancel your ChatGPT Plus subscription. According to the official OpenAI assistance guide:

  • The service cancellation is not immediate. Your ChatGPT Plus access expires “the day after the next billing date.” You will still have access to ChatGPT Plus’s premium features until that date.
  • OpenAI says subscription fees “are nonrefundable.”
  • If you do not want to be charged for the following month’s service, you must terminate your subscription at least 24 hours before the next payment date.

Additionally, it is worth noting that some users (such as this user on Reddit and these users on this page of the OpenAI API Community Forum) have reported having difficulties terminating their ChatGPT Plus subscriptions and ultimately being unable to do so.
