  • Via email

How To Cancel ZipRecruiter Through the Website

There’s an option to cancel ZipRecruiter through the official website, but you can only do so if you’re still “within your free trial,” as the company would put it.

It’s crucial to pay the exact wording on ZipRecruiter’s support page. When you take a minute to re-read the above phrase, you’ll realize that you cannot simply cancel your account through the website if you’re a paid user, which is a bit absurd.

Instead, ZipRecruiter makes you reach out to their customer service to have them cancel the account for you. As you may have suspected, this practically forces you to waste a ton of time, plus you’ll have to listen to their rehearsed pitch and refus their “special offers” a dozen times before they agree to finally delete your ZipRecruiter account.

What ZipRecruiter’s Charges Look Like On Your Bank Statement

Once ZipRecruiter charges you, you will be able to see it in your bank account statement. This is what it will usually look like:


Will You Get a Refund if You Cancel Your Subscription?

Unfortunately, though unsurprisingly, ZipRecruiter does not offer refunds on cancelled subscriptions. The only potential way for you to get a refund is if you’re dissatisfied with something about the platform. In that case, you would have to contact their ZipRecruiter customer service.

Will ZipRecruiter Automatically Charge You After the Free Trial?

Yes, just like the majority of services that offer free trials, ZipRecruiter is going to start charging you a monthly subscription as soon as your free trial expires.

What’s mind-boggling is that ZipRecruiter’s free trial only lasts for three days. While the company states that the free trial period is four days, they also clearly state that you will be charged on the fourth day unless you cancel your subscription (and by subscription, they mean the free trial).

Like many other service providers, ZipRecruiter is more or less counting on the fact that you’ll forget to cancel your free trial in time, so they can start charging your credit card month after month until you cancel the subscription.
