You’ll be directed to complete the purchase via Google Play or the App Store.
Once the purchase is complete, your payment method will be charged on the same day of each month (e.g. if you registered on November 3, you will next be charged on December 3). You will also receive your monthly benefits on this day.

How do I cancel my subscription?
Your subscription is managed via your Google Play or App Store account. To manage your subscription, tap Main Menu > Settings > Subscription > Manage. Please see additional information on the Google Play or App Store help center.
What happens to my inventory once I cancel my subscription?
If an Agent is over the 2,000 item cap when they cancel their C.O.R.E. subscription, they will retain all of their items when their subscription ends but will not be able to obtain new items until they’re below the default 2,000 item cap. This includes obtaining items by Hacking Portals, via Passcodes or through purchases in the Ingress Store.
What happens to my C.O.R.E. medal if I cancel my subscription?
Nothing, once you’ve earned your C.O.R.E. medal, it is yours to keep.
I’m not able to make purchases in the store, how can I subscribe?
Unfortunately, if you aren’t able to make purchases in the Ingress Store, you will not be able to purchase a C.O.R.E. subscription.
Why are C.O.R.E. prices different in different regions or countries?
Prices are determined through a variety of factors, including your country's exchange rate and app store pricing tiers. This can explain why you may see differences in prices for the same item.
