How do I cancel a recurring payment? How I cancel my account? I

The account is free, so you might as well keep the account. If you email service@instructables.com, they will be able to help you with turning off the auto-renewal.

PLEASE SET MY PRO MEMBERSHIP AUTO-RENEWAL TO "OFF!"

(I was able to cancel this way, but I'm not happy about the instructable website not letting me do it... a real turn-off)


From the paypal website:



How do I cancel a recurring payment, subscription, or automatic billing agreement I have with a merchant?

We’re introducing a new and improved Profile to some customers. Until all customers are using the new Profile, there are 2 sets of instructions on how to do this. Please follow the instructions that match what you see on the site.

1. Log in to your PayPal account.
2. Click Profile near the top of the page.

I must make a comment here that When 'Instructables' uses recurring payments only as means of payment then many untoward and negative options will exist for users who pay this way. The first one is that you can die and even though you are dead your account could be accessible and payments taken from it. As well as this we often forget that payments need to be canceled and whilst this is beneficial for 'Instructables' it is extremely annoying and inconvenient for the users, and often causes great troubles such as if the website and company goes down or becomes inaccessible and you still don't get the benefit of using it because of it. There is always the possibility of the Website going out of business altogether.

So Instructables , please review your payment methods as make sure there are other options such as one month only. One Year Only and even One day only or Two weeks only. There are many occasions that exist as to why these options are necessary ; not least when the possibility of your website getting hacked is very easily possible too. Hospital appointments, Long term absence from the Country or just being out of touch for a while all count as not getting full value for money so please allow us to determine our own lengths of time membership that are not constrained by the impediment of having to CANCEL MEMBERSHIPS.

YES AND LETS SEE A CANCELATION BUTTON I LARGE AND BIG LETTERS ON THE MAIN FRONT PAGE.

WHAT ARE YOU SO AFRAID OF ANYWAY? WE HAVE MORE TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT THAN YOU SINCE WHERE ARE OUR GUARANTEES AND ASSURANCES THAT WE ARE ON A BONA-FIDE WEBSITE AND NOT SOME HACKED DUPLICATE?

Whats more is; Why can't we see in Large and Red letters on the page that Show when we have an existing MEMBERSHIP AND WHETHER WE ARE PRO or not please?

That comment is probably worth starting a fresh forum topic in Feedback.

If you click this link, it will take you directly to the appropriate form:

nned to cancel this site sucks i couldnt even get a matrial list for the diy project i wanted screw that

If a project doesn't include a list (and most do), all you need to do is leave a comment asking for it, or send the author a Private Message. Don't forget, the content here is user-generated, almost entirely by amateurs donating their time, effort and materials for free for you to enjoy.

Oh, and you'll get a lot further if you remember the site's "Be Nice" policy... ;-)
