If you’re no longer interesed in the premium services of WhatsApp and are looking for how to cancel WhatsApp premium subscription, we’ve got you covered.

WhatsApp Business is different from the normal WhatsApp app in the sense that it allows small and medium-sized business owners to create a business profile and communicate with their customers. They can also create a catalog that customers can browse, choose, and order from.

On top of that, it has a handful of features such as the premium monthly subscription that allows business to create webpages and add multiple users. However, it is a monthly subscription, meaning to keep up those particular services you’ll have to keep paying.

That said, there could be multiple reasons as to why someone could want to cancel their premium subscription. In either case, we’re here to help and have put together this step-by-step guide that should take you through the process of cancelling your WhatsApp Business premium subscription.
