I signed up to DropBox on the basic packedge and then after a day I decided to try out the free trail upgrade. After a week I realised I didn't need nearly the amount of storage the pro was offering, so I cancelled my free trial, only to realise I had been charged £19.99. How has this happened? It was meant to be a free trail, isn't the whole point of a free trail that you can get out of it for FREE before its up!? I wasn't even close to it expiring, it was 7 days into 30 days! Help please. £19.99 is a lot of money for nothing and I'm tempted to leave DropBox alltogether if its going to be sneaky like this
I don't have DropBox on my phone, so it would have either been via the website, or via the laptop APP, but most likley the website.
Attaching images of of what my account plan shows.
It was on 17 November that I started my free trial (which said it expired on 17th Dec), then I cancelled it on 2nd December when I realised I had been charged £19.99. So I am now back on the Basic plan, but do not understand why I have been charged this.
Since I don't see any charge for this account (per your screenshot), you might be getting charged for another account of yours under another email address or it could be that these funds are in pending state, Ellie.
At this point, I'd suggest checking with your bank or contact our support team through an incognito window to ensure you're not logged into any account.
