      Update: My fault on not reading the fine print on recurring subscription. Franny, thank you for making me aware of my silly error. As a result of my error I have shredded the debit card with my institution to prevent further debits. Any chance of creating one month payment at a time options, RU? Even though I fall under the Free Early Reader Subscription I Love supporting RU and the writers when the funds are available.

      Thanks again!

      1. Update (6/22/2021):

        The link KapteinB gave actually assists in cancelling. So Grateful in light of my iPhone’s disability. I will resubscribe when I am able for sure and then cancel prior to renewals if I realize I won’t have the funds the following month. A lot of the puzzle pieces falling into place. This month has been a plethora of crossing wires, scrambling frequencies and retrograding graduations. Thanks for bearing with during this chaotic fiasco here.

      Jeff/Bill-

      When we subscribe to RU are we subscribing to a one-time per month payment or are we subscribing to re-curring payments? I was under the impression we re-subscribe each month. I may have pressumed wrongly as I discovered rather unexpectedly that Apple is charging me re-curring debit subscription rather than one-time. Has caused a lot of personal stress and anxiety today here which I hope to help other readers avoid in case there are others of us who thought it was a one-time per month decision. I may have misread or didn’t read the fine print closely enough. Please advise. Thank you guys!

      One aspect this new upgrade into pay subscription with the incredibly transparent color wheel has reflected back is just how much I am reading...which motivates a step up to Super Reader next month so as to split the color wheel with more funds going to the writers. The color wheel is a wonderful feature reflecting back a lot more Reader mindfulness overall.

      Music definitely needs a service like this one. I’d love to be supporting musician and audio artists better in this sense.

      Really excited for the future of RU!

      Fabulous! I am so excited for this change for ReadUp and happy to pay for what I’m consuming rather than have Big Tech consuming me. #imnottheproduct love this app!
