How to manage the subscription

Web and Android:

When you buy a subscription on the web or through an Android device, you’ll be asked to enter your billing information immediately. After the purchase, you can easily view or cancel your subscription anytime by going to Settings > Workspaces > Individual > Subscription > Show Details.


If you purchase a monthly subscription on an iOS device, it will be managed, including cancellations, through the App Store rather than within the Expensify app. You can learn how to manage App Store Subscriptions here.

After purchasing the subscription from the App Store, remember to sync your app by:

  1. Log into the Expensify mobile app
  2. Click the three bars in the upper left corner
  3. Scroll to Settings
  4. Select Sync Account

The subscription renewal date is the same as the purchase date. For instance, if you sign up for the subscription on September 7th, it will renew automatically on October 7th. You can cancel your subscription anytime during the month if you no longer need unlimited SmartScans. If you do cancel, keep in mind that your subscription (and your ability to SmartScan) will continue until the last day of the billing cycle.


Can I use an Individual Subscription while on a Collect or Control Plan?

You can! If you want to track expenses separately from your organization’s Workspace, you can sign up for an Individual Subscription. However, only Submit and Track Workspace plans are available when on an Individual Subscription. Collect and Control Workspace plans require an annual or pay-per-use subscription.
