How you’re billed
Once your free trial expires, we’ll use any credit balance on your account before billing you for either a monthly or annual subscription. See your workspace’s billing history to see available credit and when it expires.
Note: We believe in fair billing, so you’ll only pay for the members who are active at the time you upgrade. Learn more about our fair billing policy.
Downgrade back to the Free subscription
If you’ve upgraded but change your mind before the free trial ends, you can return to the Free subscription. Learn how to change your subscription.
If you downgrade after the end of the trial, our terms of service apply. You can cancel at any time and no further payments will be taken, but we do not refund payments already made.
What to expect
If your free trial ends but you decide not to upgrade, you’ll move back to the Free subscription. Here’s what to expect:
You'll return to the message and file storage limits for the Free subscription. Only the most recent 10,000 messages will be viewable and searchable. If you've passed the 5GB file storage limit, Slack will archive older files so only the most recent 5GB are available. You'll be able to access archived files in the future if you upgrade to a paid plan.
