We hope you'll always find value in our huge library of ebooks, audiobooks, news, magazines, sheet music, and more. That being said, we understand that sometimes we have to say goodbye. That's why we make it easy to cancel your subscription.
Can we try to make it right? We want to hear from you! Contact Scribd support to let us know how we can help.

Subscriptions purchased through Boku (formerly Fortumo)
Some Scribd customers pay for their subscription as part of their monthly mobile phone bill, also known as direct carrier billing. This payment method is provided by Boku, a third-party payment processor, to eligible Scribd users in Indonesia. If your purchase has been processed as part of your mobile phone bill, please contact Boku support to cancel your subscription.
If you’re unsure of your payment method, please contact Scribd support for further assistance.
What happens if I cancel in the middle of my subscription period?
Good news! The time you’ve already paid for is yours to keep - that means you can continue logging into and enjoying Scribd’s full library up until the last day of your billing cycle.
For example: If you started a monthly subscription on January 1st, you would have all of January to keep reading, even if you canceled on January 15th.
What happens to my account after I cancel my subscription?
After your subscription is canceled and expires, your free Scribd account will remain active — so you’ll still be able to share documents and use Scribd’s free features. Though you cannot access premium content, any titles you have saved and your reading history will remain intact if you ever decide to resubscribe. This also includes any notes, highlights, or bookmarks you’ve added in the past.
Deleting your account
In some cases, you may decide that you would like to fully delete your account with Scribd. We have a step-by-step guide on deleting your Scribd account completely in our support article, "How do I delete my Scribd account?"
Note: If you have an active subscription, you will not be able to delete your account without first canceling your subscription and allowing it to expire.
