By default, annual and monthly Spotlight memberships auto-renew.
This ensures your profile and listings can always be found with no downtime or additional admin.
You can however (if you prefer) turn off auto-renew and switch your subscription to manual renew.
In this article, I’ll show you how it’s done, step-by-step.
First, from the user menu, choose “Subscriptions”
On the subscriptions page you’ll see a list of your membership records.
If a subscription has a payment summary under the next payment date (as shown below) this indicates that the membership is set to auto-renew.
To disable this, click “view”.
On the subscription details page you’ll see the auto-renew switched to “on” and a secure summary of the payment information for the renewal.
To switch to manual renew, move the auto-renew slider to the off position (shown below).
This will amend the payment summary to show as “via manual renewal”.
You can switch back to auto-renewal at any time by switching the auto-renewal slider back to the on position.
