Explanation of metric

Point in time indicator of the rate at which Revenue is lost from CANCELLED Subscriptions.

Note: Cancellations within the same month of Activation are not included.


Down: Good

  • Cancellation MRR helps to identify the plan that contributes to the highest Churn. It is a good indicator to determine the need for optimizing current pricing.
  • Example: In a given period, 200 Customers are on Plan A ($10/month). 15 Customers unsubscribe the service during the next billing cycle.
    Total MRR of Churned Subscriptions during a period = (15 X 10) = $150,
    MRR at the beginning of that period = 200 X 10 = $2,000,
    Cancellation MRR Rate = [(150 / 2000) X 100] = 7.5%.
