Amazon is a virtual marketplace that allows individuals to buy and sell products. It also offers digital services such as artificial intelligence, cloud computing, and digital streaming. The company was originally founded in 1994 under the name Cadabra and was a bookstore. Once it made the transition to selling more products, it achieved massive success.
Amazon has a subscription model called "Prime." With a Prime membership, individuals get free fast shipping for eligible products, free streaming services of movies, television shows and music, unlimited reading materials, and exclusive shopping deals. If you currently have an Amazon Prime membership and want to cancel it, follow the steps as outlined below:
Go to www.amazon.com
In the top right corner, click on 'Hello, Sign In: Account & Lists' and select 'Sign In.'
Enter your email address or phone number and select 'Continue.'
Enter your password and select 'Sign In.'
Once signed in, in the top right corner, select 'Account & Lists' and click 'Your Prime Membership.'
Review the renewal date for your Prime membership.
If you have a free trial, select 'Do Not Continue.'
If you have a paid membership, select 'End Membership.'
You will receive an email confirming your changes have been made. You will continue to have access to all of your Prime membership benefits until the last day of your subscription. For example, if your free trial or membership renews on the 15th, you will continue to have Prime membership benefits until the 14th.
If you're having difficulties canceling online, you can call into Amazon's customer service line. You will need to provide some details that verify your identity as the account holder. The customer service representative will either walk you through some troubleshooting steps or cancel the Prime membership on your behalf. If they're canceling on your behalf, make sure to ask them to send you an email confirming the changes. Keep the agent on the line until you receive the email.
If you don't have access to a phone or prefer not to call in, Amazon Customer Service can also be reached via their live chat. Make sure to provide your account details, be firm in your request to cancel the Prime membership, and keep the agent on the chat until you receive a confirmation email.
