How do I downgrade my account to free or close?

We're sorry to hear that you'd like to downgrade/close your account. Have you considered all available options? DocuSign has a variety of plans to choose from to fit your needs.

We can also help you with transferring to a new plan or processing a refund (on eligible plans).

Note: If you have purchased your DocuSign account subscription through iTunes or Google Play please follow the steps outlined in the following:

Downgrade to free vs Close

Downgrade to free: We generally recommend downgrading accounts to a free version. This will enable you to retain access to your existing completed documents, however it will limit your ability to send future documents.

Close: If you close your account, we recommend that you download all of your documents, as they will not be accessible after cancellation/closure.

Account Closure Requirements

  • Account Administrator
  • Certain DocuSign account plans allow you to downgrade to free or close directly from your account. If you do not see the option to Edit Plan under Go to Admin | Billing and Usage, you may need to contact your administrator, account manager or submit a support case.

Account Closure Steps
