Zoom will ask you to give your feedback about its service; after clicking on one of the radio buttons, click on Submit button.
That’s it! You have canceled your Zoom subscription successfully. Note that Zoom may ask you to contact its Sales department to cancel your subscription.
To cancel your Add-On subscription, follow the first three steps as mentioned above. On Current Plans tab, click Cancel Subscription next to the add-on you like to discontinue auto-renewal of. However, you should remember that your Zoom subscription will be active until your billing period is over.
