Your subscription is prepaid until its next renewal date. It will remain active between the date you cancel the subscription and the date it expires. Here’s a breakdown of what will happen after you cancel your subscription before and after the expiration date.

Before My Subscription Expires

When you cancel your subscription to Envato Elements, you will still have access to its services until your subscription expires. You can still download all assets available from the Envato library.

While the subscription is still active, you can continue to use Envato Elements for projects and license new projects the same as before you canceled.

From your account settings, you will see a countdown (in days) for how much time you have left with your active subscription. You’ll also see an option to re-activate your subscription.

After My Subscription Expires

When your Envato Elements subscription expires, you will no longer to be able to download and license new assets. You will not be able to add a license to an existing download.

However, all end products you licensed while your Envato Elements subscription was active will still be valid. If you used a downloaded asset in a client’s project, your client will still be able to use that end product.

Can I Get a Refund if I Cancel Envato Elements

When you cancel your Envato Elements subscription, you’ll remain an active subscriber for the period you’ve already paid for. Envato Elements will not issue a refund, but your subscription will not renew as it was scheduled.
