Netflix once offered a convenient feature allowing users to change their billing date at any time. However, with recent updates, this functionality is no longer available. Rest assured, while directly changing your Netflix billing date isn’t an option anymore, you can still achieve it indirectly by canceling your subscription and then restarting it on your desired billing date.

So, if you’re looking to adjust your Netflix payment date to align with your payday or better manage your cash flow for improved budgeting and financial planning, here’s a guide on how to change your Netflix billing date. Let’s begin by exploring how to find your Netflix billing date on both web browsers and mobile devices.

From a Web Browser

If you are using a Mac or Windows PC, you will need to use a web browser to find the billing date of your Netflix subscription.

Step 1. Visit Netflix.com and click Sign in at the top right to log in to your Netflix account.

Step 2. Hover over your profile icon in the top right corner, and select Account in the drop-down menu.

From Your Mobile Device

You can use the Netflix app on your iOS and Android devices to find the Netflix billing date.

  1. Launch the Netflix app on your mobile device, select My Netflix on the lower right, and tap More  or in the upper right corner.
  2. Select Account  in the pop-up menu.

  1. Tap Billing Details, and you will see your Next Billing Date.

Part 2. Cancel and Resubscribe on Your Preferred Billing Date

As Netflix no longer offers the option to change your billing date directly within the account settings, the only method to adjust your payment date is to cancel your Nexflix and resubscribe on the desired billing date. Follow the steps below to make this change.

Step 1. Cancel Your Netflix Subscription

You can cancel your Netflix account from either your computer or your mobile device.

Cancel Netflix on a Computer

To cancel your Netflix subscription on a Mac or Windows computer, you’ll need to use a web browser, as there is no “cancel membership” option available within the Netflix app on Windows. Additionally, Netflix currently doesn’t have an app for Mac. Here are the steps to cancel your subscription through a web browser.

1. Sign in to your account at Netflix.com. Click your profile icon in the top right corner and select Account.

2. Click the Manage Membership button under Membership Details.

3. Scroll down to the bottom and select Cancel Membership.

4. Click Finish Cancellation.

Cancel Netflix on Your Phone or Tablet

To cancel your Netflix subscription on your iPad, iPhone, and Android phone or tablet, follow the guide below:

  1. Open the Netflix app on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device, and select My Netflix >  More ( or in the upper right corner) > Account .
  2. Tap the Cancel Membership button under Billing Details, and select Finish Cancellation to complete the process.


After canceling your Netflix account, you can continue watching until the end of your current billing period. Then you can restart your account on the date you want to be billed. 

Step 2. Restart Your Netflix Account

After cancellation, Netflix keeps your Viewing Activity for 10 months, allowing you to restart within that time without the need to register again.

Please note: Before restarting your Netflix account, make sure that your original billing period has ended. Then, restart your account on your preferred billing date. Otherwise, your billing date remains unchanged.

To restart your Netflix account, sign in to Netflix.com and select “Restart Your Membership” from any profile (except a Kids profile). You’ll be asked to restart your membership once you sign in to Netflix. Your billing date will change to the date you restart Netflix.

Part 3. How to Cancel Your Netflix Subscription But Keep Downloads

Netflix allows users to download TV shows and movies to specific devices through the Netflix app. However, the downside is that once a subscription is canceled, these downloaded titles become inaccessible. Nevertheless, Pazu Netflix Video Downloader presents a solution, enabling users to download content from Netflix and enjoy it offline on various devices even after their membership has ended. That is to say, you can continue to enjoy your favorite shows and movies during the gap time when you cancel Netflix and await the desired billing date to restart your subscription.

The converted files can be preserved in high quality as 1080p after a fast download process, with subtitles and audio tracks kept 100% the same as the original video.

With Pazu Netflix Video Downloader, you can easily transfer the downloaded files to any compatible device of your choice. This means that even after canceling a Netflix subscription, you can still access and watch your favorite Netflix titles offline.
