You can make changes to your ShipStation subscription plan at any time.
You may be wondering: Can I change my subscription plan at any time?
Yes! ShipStation allows you to change your subscription, which you may need to do if your shipment volume increases or varies by season. Additionally, a change in your plan level allows you to adjust the number of users for your account.
You can upgrade long term, or just for a month. To change your plan, do the following:
Find the Current Subscription section and click Change Your Subscription.
Select the plan you want to change to (Upgrade/Downgrade) from those listed in the ShipStation Subscription Plan pop-up window.
In this pop-up, you can also add or subtract any additional users as necessary. Review our article about adding and editing users for more details.
Click Approve and Change to save any changes you make!
To change the payment method, address, and email address associated with your ShipStation subscription follow the steps below:
Scroll down to the Billing Information section.
Click Change Billing Information and change any information as necessary.
Click Save when you're done!

Click the past invoices link.

Should you choose to cancel your ShipStation subscription, a number of things will happen.
Your subscription will be valid until the last day of your billing period, so you will still be able to use ShipStation fully until that time.
You will be able to login to ShipStation, but you will only be able to access the
Account > Subscriptionscreen (should you want to resubscribe).
You will not be able to run any reports from your ShipStation account. So be sure to run any reports you need on your shipment information while the subscription is still active.
Log in to ShipStation using the same username and password you used previously on your account.
ShipStation will open the Account & Subscription pop-up.
If you are unable to log in, use the Forgot Password option in the login window. If you are unable to reset your password this way, please contact ShipStation support for further assistance.
Click Change Your Subscription.
Select the plan level you'd like to use (even if it shows as the currently selected plan), and enter your billing information into the Account Billing pop-up window.
If your billing information is still saved in ShipStation, this pop-up will be skipped.
Save your changes.
Your account will now be reactivated and you'll be able to access the rest of the app to start shipping again!
Your new billing period will start the day you reactivate your account.
