How to change your billing cycle to annual or monthly

Important: you must change your Dropbox subscription exactly the same way that you bought it. For example, if you bought your subscription from the Apple app store, you must change it from the Apple app store too.

When do plan changes take effect?

All changes to your billing date will take effect at the end of your current billing cycle. For example, if you want to move to a yearly subscription, you'll stay on a monthly subscription until the end of the month, and then switch to yearly. 

Note: If you purchased a subscription from Google Play, your payments can only be billed monthly.
