What audiobook subscription plans are available?
Once your free trial* is complete, you’ll be automatically enrolled into our basic subscription plan, where you’ll receive one credit every month for $9.99. On your recurring billing date we’ll add the credit to your account, which you can exchange for an audiobook any time.
If one audiobook a month isn’t enough for you, we offer three other subscription plans. Speedy listeners can get two monthly credits for $15.99/month; if you’d like a year or two’s worth of credits at once, you can get 12 instant credits for $99.90/year, or 24 instant credits for $159.90 a year. The more you listen, the more you’ll save.
*Residents of Quebec are given a bonus free audiobook in their first month in place of a free 30-day trial.
How many credits do I need to exchange for an audiobook?
One credit = one audiobook. It's that simple!
Can I change my subscription plan any time?
You sure can. Simply sign in on kobo.com and click My Account. Then, select My Subscriptions, where you'll be able to switch to another plan with just a click.
When you change subscription plans, your regular billing date will change to reflect the start date of your new plan, with recurring charges once a month from that date (or once a year for the 12 or 24 instant credit plans).
If you change from a monthly plan to an annual one, your instant credits will be granted right away.
Can I cancel my subscription at any time?
Absolutely! You can cancel at any time without restrictions.
To cancel your subscription, sign in on kobo.com and click My Account. Then, select My Subscriptions, where you'll be able to cancel.
*Unused credits will remain active for six months beginning from your cancelation date.
