Pausing Your Audible Membership

If you’re not sure yet that you want to cancel — or if you just want some time to catch up on your audiobook backlog before you pay for more — you can put your Audible Plus or Audible Premium Plus membership on hold for one to three months. You won’t have to pay during this time, and you won’t accrue any credits.

To pause your Audible membership, just select “Pause membership” instead of “Cancel membership” on the Account Details webpage.

This option is not available for plans that do not earn credits or memberships started through iOS or Google Play.

Final Take

Audible memberships are easy to cancel, but be aware the steps to do so can vary depending on what type of device you use. You can cancel anytime, and if you change your mind, you can renew your membership anytime.
