Canceling a Free BASIC Account

If you have a free BASIC account, there is no billing activity to cancel, so you won't find a cancellation button in your account. If for certain reasons you need this account deleted or disassociated with your information; deleting an account is irreversible:

  • If you have billing history on your account: We can disassociate your account from your information, but due to legal reasons, we can't delete your account history entirely.
  • If your account has never been paid: We can delete your account entirely.

To proceed with either option above, contact our support team. Please include in your email to support that you confirm you would like the account permanently deleted or disassociated which will clear the data and free up the username for other future users. This action can't be undone, so let us know you confirm you'd like this done. and our support team will take care of your request swiftly! In these requests, please include your username "I confirm I'd like (my username) permanently deleted/disassociated."

NOTE: If you participate in SurveyMonkey Contribute (English only), deleting your BASIC account will also purge your Contribute account. To delete your BASIC account, you need to delete your Contribute account first. See how here (English only).

What if There's an Outstanding Invoice on My Account?

If you have a new unpaid invoice on your account, don't worry — you don't have to pay it before you cancel.  However, you're not able to cancel the account yourself when there's an outstanding invoice. Please contact our support team and we'll cancel the account for you.

To cancel your plan or auto-renewal, click the Cancel button under the Billing Details tab of the My Account section.
