How do I Downgrade or Delete My Account?


Which of the following would you like to do?

Stop Paying for Pear Deck Premium

You may stop paying for Pear Deck and switch to a Basic (Free) account anytime. Go to your My Account page and switch to the Free Plan. You will no longer be charged for Pear Deck. If you have questions about payments, please email

When you switch to the Free plan, you will still have access to and be able to present all of the Pear Deck presentations you've ever made, including the custom Draggable and Drawing Slides you created. But you will lose access to Premium features going forward, including the ability to create new custom Draggable and Drawing slides, open the Teacher Dashboard, add Pear Deck Audio recordings, send Feedback to students, and more!
