Accidentally purchased a yearly subscription

Accidentally purchased a yearly subscription

hi,I accidentally purchased a yearly subscription instead of a monthly subscription. 

English is not my mother language,thats the main reason I failed to understand the information on DB website when I was trying to register my account.

I live in Australia temporaryly now.

AS an individual user ,All I need is just a economic  account  so that I can share something with my friends. But over AU$1000 is taken from me this morning ,which surperised me so much. I can never afford this price, and thats almost half of my whole money.

what should I do to deal with this ?

Could anyone help me please ?

For that price you havent just accidentally taken a yearly subscription, you've taken out a business one on a yearly plan.

You need to contact support at www.dropbox.com/support which you can then track at http://dropbox.zendesk.com to get it resolved, if it is possible to.

Account has been refunded. If you are looking to upgrade, please be sure to look for Dropbox Plus or Dropbox Professional and not the Dropbox Business plans!   Have a good day!

Hey there @Eileen1966 - I hope you had a marvelous weekend and wishing you all the best for the upcoming week!

 

As per your inquiry now, I have two things to point out:

 

1. If the trial you started was purchased through our website, you should be able to cancel it via your account settings.  On that page you're able to downgrade your account or even cancel your subscription.

 

2. If you initiated the trial through your mobile's app store though, you should contact Google or Apple and ask them directly since if you upgrade your Dropbox account via the app on your phone, your subscription is administered by the app store platform and not by Dropbox.

 

You can view this page for purchases through Google's Play Store or this one here for Apple purchases. 

 

I hope this helps and please let me know if there is anything more I can do from my end to help.
