Ever Wonder How To Get Refund from Website Auto Pay Setup?

Anyone who has ever signed up for a website online using PayPal or a credit card has been in this position before at least once; when you want to cancel that auto payment setup that is automatic whenever you sign up for most websites online. That fine print is important to read, I have learned the hard way many years ago to read that fine print, especially if you are putting your PayPal or credit card information into a website.  It can be extremely difficult or confusing to try to opt out of this auto payment structure should you decide you are no longer interested in the paying subscription part of the website.

That is why there are many tutorials online to help show you how to get a refund or stop the auto payments from coming out of your credit card account or PayPal account. For example, you may sign up for the site called MyLife, never heard of it? I have. There are commercials for this site saying it’s a great place to find those you have been hoping to find. Also, with a paid account, you can access MyLife history that shows you who has been searching for you. It sounds like a neat concept and many have benefited from using this website.

For those who have used this website, they may be all done using the paid version of the site and wish to get a MyLife.com Refund, that is where the tutorials online come in handy. You see, PayPal is tricky to get rid of those “subscription payments” for their account transaction navigation seems to change time to time. The other thing is that you can not simply call your bank to cancel the credit card payment for you signed a contract by clicking to allow the website to take a payment from your account. You will need to go into the individual website if you used a credit card payment to work on either getting a refund through their website or turn off automatic payments.

Have you ever signed up for a website only to find out later it was an automatic payment option that you didn’t realize and had to go through the process of cancelling that payment? Was it an easy or difficult process for you?

    There was a company that offered to clean up your songs on your iPod, and mine sure needed it. There’s a LOT of music on there that I transferred from CDs, so a ton of songs said “Unknown,” and I didn’t want to play through them to name them (way too time-consuming). I purchased the clean up service (which was somewhat effective) and thought that was the end of it. I only used it that one time. When the ‘contract’ expired, they renewed automatically. It was easy to stop that from happening, and I should have read the fine print. Part of me thinks “why should I have to, why can’t people just be on the up and up?” but the other part of me knows better.

    Your idea to read the fine print is not only a good idea, it’s a necessity (imho).
