Delete direct debit authorization from PayPal – cancel automatic payments


Many online services with a subscription model such as Spotify offer PayPal as a means of payment. How to delete a direct debit authorization from PayPal.

Many online services with a subscription model, including Spotify, Google Play Store or the iTunes & App Store, offer PayPal as a means of payment. When you take out a subscription, you get a kind of direct debit authorization for your PayPal account. This means that the service can debit the amount from your PayPal account every month or whenever you buy something.

If you now cancel your subscription to an online service, you can also delete the direct debit authorization from PayPal for security reasons. However, it is worth taking a look at the relevant PayPal sections even without canceling your subscription. Because you will most likely find more company direct debit authorizations than you expect.
