Hi there, I have been charged $850 for 5 licences that I don't want. I understood it was $17 per month ... so I had a huge shock when I received an invoice for $850. I have submitted numerous tickets and was expecting a reply in 12 hours, more than 24 hours, no reply. Please tell me how to cancel this subscription or downgrade to 1 license and receive a refund.

I have had exactly the same problem. I have been charged $1700 for a service I did not want, did not need and had cancelled. I have been trying to get reimbursed ever since 20th August but have received no satisfactory reply. I had understood it is illegal for a company to charge a customer for a service that he or she did not want, need and had cancelled. How can I get a refund. Judging from the comment above this seems to a be common practice of Dropbox, i.e. to charge customers for cancelled and unwanted services. I recommend that all customers be warned and cancel all accounts with Dropbox.

Dropbox for Business is $15 per user per month, with a minimum of 5 users. The lowest possible rate is $75/month or $850/year.
I have submitted numerous tickets and was expecting a reply in 12 hours, more than 24 hours, no reply.
Opening multiple tickets only slows down the response time. Close all but the original and wait for a reply. Replies take approximately 1-3 business days for Business/Pro customers (longer for Basic users). Also, as a Dropbox for Business user you have access to phone support. The phone number and required PIN can be found in your admin console under Help.

The minimum number of licenses is 5 so you won't be able to downgrade. Dropbox usually has a no refund policy as stated in their terms. You'll need to speak with Support about your specific situation.
I have not yet received a reply to my query. I object strongly to the blanket rule about no refunds. This is ridiculous and against all trading policies, certainly in Australia. If services were not used, wanted or asked for I suggest it is probably illegal to charge for them as in my case. I demand my refund of $1700 which was wrongly debited on my account.

Some progress on my situation - I managed to have live communication with the US this morning Australian time, through the "chat" - I explained the situation and they showed me how to cancel my subscription. They also said I would receive a refund, although there was no mention as to when this would occur. They advised me to go for dropbox pro rather than business. I am still waiting for a full transcript of my chat with them and hope that we will actually get the refund, but it sounded promising! If you are based in Australia as I am, try calling them or contacting them via the online chat first thing in the morning while the USA is still awake!
