What happens to my existing Silver subscription when I upgrade to Gold?

If you upgrade your subscription from Silver to Gold, you will immediately get access to your new Gold subscription content. Any unused fees you have already paid for your Silver access will be used to extend the length of your Gold subscription. This means that you will not lose out on unused Silver access. This will be shown on your new PayPal email receipt as a “trial period”.


How do I see which subscription I currently have?

Once you’ve logged in to Oxford Dictionaries, visit your account page, and scroll to ‘Your subscription’. This will show whether you have a free account or have access to one of our premium language subscriptions.
