Cancel Your CamScanner Account the Easy Way

As an easy option for converting photographs of important documents to PDF or JPEG files, CamScanner can be a helpful app for users who have a high level of need for this service and will use it consistently. However, if you find that you are not using it enough times each month to justify the cost, can be a good option for saving money. This process may be easier said than done, but DoNotPay can make it easier.

Here is an overview of and some alternatives to this service that you may prefer!

How to Cancel CamScanner

Unfortunately, you cannot cancel your CamScanner subscription directly through the company. CamScanner's website explains that all cancellations must be completed through Google Play or the Apple Store at least one day prior to your next month's payment. To do this, you will need to

  1. Log into your Google Play or Apple account
  2. Locate "CamScanner Premium Account" under Subscriptions (Google Play) or Manage App Subscriptions (Apple)
  3. Click Cancel

It is important to note that either option will only end your future payments. You will not be able to get a refund for the current month, even if you have not used your subscription during this period unless the current month is your first month after forgetting to cancel a free trial.

Potential Problems When Canceling CamScanner

It’s not easy to cancel CamScanner on your own

  1. CamScanner does not cancel accounts on its own. Instead, the service forces you to go through Google Play or the Apple Store to cancel or manage other aspects of your account, and successfully solving a problem through a third-party service can be more confusing than it needs to be.
  2. The company also states that it cannot even help you with verifying whether your account has been successfully canceled, which means that you will have to deal with the hassle of contacting Google or Apple directly with even minor questions.

DoNotPay's Virtual Credit Card Stops Free Trials Before You're Charged

Like many companies, CamScanner requires you to provide payment information to sign up for a free trial of its premium subscription. Companies do this to make users less likely to use a trial once or twice and then forget they have it, as the goal of free trials is to convert as many users into satisfied paid subscribers as possible.

CamScanner allows users to obtain a refund for one payment if they forget to cancel their free trial, but the process is lengthy. You will be out of luck if you forget that you signed up for a CamScanner premium account after you have made more than one automatic payment.

DoNotPay's virtual credit card provides a better option that will keep you from being charged in the first place. With this service, we will provide you with randomly generated payment details that will appear legitimate for the purpose of accessing your free trial and preventing any accidental charges.

Is CamScanner Being Difficult? DoNotPay Can Help You Send Demand Letters To It

Although spending time and money suing CamScanner should be your last resort, DoNotPay can also assist you with taking this step toward forcing the company to cancel your subscription if it is unresponsive to other attempts.

We can help you send demand letters to CamScanner or any other company in small claims court if they make a major error that results in you losing a significant amount of money that they refuse to correct.
