Payment without permission and can`t cancel my suscription

First of all, it clearly says when you're getting the free trial that they're not going to charge you anything and they did, they charged me 1€ for no reason. The other issue I have is I follow all of the instructions and still can`t cancel my suscription to Google Stadia

same thing happened to with me. i canceled right after it tried the service to make sure i won't get charged. yet, somehow i got charged. the subscription didn't show up under the regular google subscription management at all. i couldn't figure out how to cancel without involving customer support. then finally i was able to cancel, but they couldn't refund the payment i didn't intend to pay for a service i haven't used at all.

@elvisge7 The 1€ is only charged for verification, and will be returned eventually. If you're really worried about it, check in a few days and report back here if the charge hasn't been removed.

Can you elaborate more on what you did by "follow all of the instructions"? Have you tried following the steps described in the help page?
