There are two subscriptions to choose between, divided into tiers; 2 and 10 users + the Realm owner. The cost varies depending on the size of the tier. The price available to you is shown in the game. If you want to change the size (go from 2 users to 10, or from 10 to 2), you will have to cancel the subscription to the Realm, wait until the remaining days expire, and then renew the Realm in the desired size.
You can cancel your subscription from your app store's subscription settings. View your subscription from the settings menu in-game to find out which app store processed your purchase from there you can also manage your subscription. If that does not work, you can access your settings in the app store where you made the purchase, and cancel the recurring payment.
