Cancel the automatic subscription renewal for your users
Deleting a user account from the app or the app being deactivated doesn't cancel the subscription made on the stores.
- A subscribed user delete his account from your app but doesn't cancel his subscription on the stores, Apple or Google will still renew automatically their subscription.
- Apple or Google will also renew automatically the subscription and take your users money even if you cancel your GoodBarber account or if your app is deactivated.
To cancel the auto renewal of their subscriptions, users must do it from the stores directly:
