Upgrade/Downgrade Sub on next payment option
It would be neat to be able to change my auto payment for subs for a higher or lower tier and keep my current payment date and month streak without having to unsubscribe and resubscribe at the higher tier or paying for both tiers on the same day.
It's extremely difficult to line up gifted T3 subs when the viewers most likely to make good use of them are already paid T1 subs or most likely to get a gifted sub from being active in chat. Getting a T3 should ALWAYS be a fun option instead of a scheduling/timing worry.
We need this! Downgrading should be as easy as upgrading!
It is BANANAS that this feature is still not implemented, over 3 years later.

upvoting this, and also would appreciate clarification from twitch on what part of the original request is "planned" (it states that it was last updated 3 years ago).
as others have already stated, we have an easy option for upgrading our subscription, but the process for downgrading is convoluted, punishes the viewer for not being able to stay subbed at a higher tier, and punishes the streamer for their viewers needing to manage their money. I like rotating my Tier 3 and Tier 2 subscriptions between the creators I follow so that I can give them that extra support without breaking the bank with a dozen Tier 3 subs, but the current sub system makes that a HUGE pain.
Seems pretty crooked that Twitch allows you to UPGRADE your tiers, but not downgrade? Come on Twitch... Get with the program.
It's honestly disgusting that Twitch does not have a way of downgrading without first having to un-sub. @CaptainClicK_ put it in a lot better words than I can. But please for the love of god! Implement this as soon as possible.
yeah.... u can easily upgrade your tier subscription with one click in the subscriptions settings, but you have to un-sub and then re-sub at a lower tier if you wish to downgrade your subscription. Slightly, subtly predatory IMO. When you're in the business of monetizing the human need for social connection, forcing someone to un-sub to a channel they have a strong perceived social connection with acts as a deterrent. This may put someone in a position where they're paying a monthly payment that may be beyond their means.
I would like this feature, especially since Twitch currently doesn't support proration of subscription tiers. It would be very nice to be able to update my subscription so that the next months resubscribes at a higher or lower tier, circumventing any weird payment calculations related to upgrading a subscription mid-month.
