How To Cancel Your Zoosk Auto Renewal

Most online dating apps have some kind of subscription tier, even those with free account options. They lock all the good stuff behind the paywall and do everything they can to encourage you to pony up for a premium account. There’s nothing wrong with that but you need to keep on top of things to retain control. This tutorial is going to show you how to cancel your Zoosk auto renewal and deactivate your account once done.


Social Media

Zoosk, like many dating apps, offers a free membership tier with some basic functions and a subscription that open up every feature of the platform. It does seem to be slightly more generous with the free account but you will still need to pay if you want to message anyone so isn’t that generous!

Also like other dating apps, Zoosk uses monthly or annual subscriptions to make money. The current cost is:

  • 1-month subscription: $29.95
  • 3-month subscription: $59.95
  • 6-month subscription: $74.95
  • 12-month subscription: $99.95

This is similar to dating platforms like Plenty of Fish, Match.com, eHarmony, Tinder and others. As well as this subscription, you are also expected to buy Zoosk coins to unlock special features such as profile boosts, virtual gifts and other stuff. 50 Zoosk coins cost $4.99 while 750 Zoosk coins cost $49.99.

Online dating can be expensive!

What isn’t always clear with online dating is that free accounts will happily let you create a killer profile, add images and set everything up for dating dominance and even let you search for matches or use the carousel. When it comes to swiping or messaging, you have to pay for that.

It’s the ultimate tease. ‘Here’s who you could go out on a date with, but only if you pay’. It’s no wonder dating apps make so much money.

Cancel your Zoosk auto renewal

Most dating apps use the subscription method because they make more money that way. They use FOMO and anchoring against us to keep us paying for a service even if we stop using it or pause it for a while. A combination of inertia, laziness and that feeling of potentially missing out when we cancel something all combine to keep us subscribing.

If you’re above all that or have found The One, this is how you cancel your Zoosk auto renewal.

From a browser:

  1. Navigate to com and log in.
  2. Select your profile on the top right of the screen.
  3. Select Account Settings and Subscriptions from the left menu.
  4. Select Cancel My Subscription and confirm your choice.

On a phone:

  1. Open Zoosk and make sure you’re logged in.
  2. Select the three line men icon in the top left of the main screen.
  3. Select the gear icon to access Settings and select Subscription.
  4. Select Cancel Subscription at the bottom and confirm.

Once you cancel your Zoosk auto renewal, you retain access to the premium features for the remaining period you have paid for. Your account will then switch to a free account until you pay up again. Your account remains live and any contacts you have will still be there, you just won’t be able to message them.

Pause or deactivate your Zoosk account

If you’re giving up on dating for a while or have met The One, you may want to know how to pause or deactivate your Zoosk account as well as stop paying for it. Pausing is just that. A brief hiatus where your profile card is pulled out of the pack so it isn’t accessible. Deactivating is much the same really but you don’t lose your messages or history.

To pause your Zoosk account, do this:

From a browser:

  1. Navigate to com and log in.
  2. Select your profile on the top right of the screen.
  3. Select Account Settings and Account Status.
  4. Select Edit and Pause Account.
  5. Follow the instructions and confirm your choice.

On a phone:

  1. Open Zoosk and make sure you’re logged in.
  2. Select the three line men icon in the top left of the main screen.
  3. Select the gear icon to access Settings and select Account.
  4. Select Account Status and Pause Account.
  5. Follow the instructions and confirm your choice.

Deactivating your Zoosk account is slightly different.

From a browser:

  1. Navigate to com and log in.
  2. Select your profile on the top right of the screen.
  3. Select Account Settings and Account Status.
  4. Select Edit and Deactivate Account.
  5. Select Deactivate Zoosk Account and confirm your choice.

 

On a phone:

  1. Open Zoosk and make sure you’re logged in.
  2. Select the three line men icon in the top left of the main screen.
  3. Select the gear icon to access Settings and select Account.
  4. Select Account Status and Deactivate.
  5. Follow the instructions and confirm your choice.

That’s all there is to canceling a Zoosk subscription and pausing or deactivating your account!
