Unsubscribing from a Renewal Period

If a resource is renewed, you can choose to unsubscribe from the renewal period. When you unsubscribe from a renewal period, you unsubscribe from only the renewal period that has not yet taken effect. You can continue to use the resource until it has expired.

In an unsubscription from a renewal period that has not yet taken effect, no handling fees are charged and the used cash coupons are returned. Unsubscribing from a renewal period that has already taken effect is equivalent to unsubscribing from a resource. For details, see the rules of unsubscribing from in-use resources.

When there is more than one renewal period that has not taken effect, you can choose the resource's expiration time to unsubscribe from multiple renewal periods.

Your request for unsubscribing from an order of more than $1000 USD needs to be reviewed by your account manager. If your account manager does not review it within 24 hours, your request will be approved automatically. By default, the unsubscribed amount is included in the month when the order is successfully unsubscribed from. If your request is approved in the next month and the unsubscription is also completed in the next month, the unsubscribed amount will be counted into the next month. You can choose Bills > Bill Details to query the transactions. For details, see Viewing Bill Details.

Example:

You paid $2000 USD for ECSs on August 20, 2021, and requested to unsubscribe from them on September 30, 2021. Your account manager would review your request because its amount exceeded $1,000 USD.

  • If the account manager approved the unsubscription request on September 30, 2021, the refunded amount was included in the bill for September and the transactions are included in billing cycle 2021/9.
  • If the account manager approved the unsubscription request on October 01, 2021, the refunded amount was included in the bill for October and the transactions are included in billing cycle 2021/10.

Scenarios When a Renewal Period Cannot Be Unsubscribed From

You cannot unsubscribe from a renewal period in the following situations:

  • If another transaction is in progress for a resource, you cannot unsubscribe from the renewal period.
  • If you perform a change operation before a renewal period takes effect, you can only unsubscribe from the resource and cannot unsubscribe from the renewal period.
  • If you add a subsidiary resource after you have successfully renewed your yearly/monthly resources, you can only unsubscribe from the resources and cannot unsubscribe from the renewal period. If you add a subsidiary resource and then renew your yearly/monthly resources, you can unsubscribe from the renewal period.
  • If there is a bandwidth add-on package, you cannot unsubscribe from the renewal period. You must unsubscribe from the add-on package before unsubscribing from the renewal period.
  • If the renewal order was made during a promotional event or an invoice has been issued for the order (issued from KooGallery cloud services or issued to partners), you cannot unsubscribe from the renewal period.
  • You cannot unsubscribe from a renewal period of CloudSite.
  • Your account or a specific resource was frozen for legal management.
