Around 11 months ago I paid Google (via Google Wallet) $5 for a year of 20GByte photo hosting on Picasa (or maybe I mean "Picasa Web"; I don't actually use the Picasa app). I can't remember if there was an "auto renew" option presented at the time of payment, and if there was, whether I selected it.

Just looking into the what's going to happen when the year is up, I see that the $5/year-for-20GByte is now considered a "legacy plan" and it seems likely google would prefer me to "upgrade" to an (IMHO extortionate) $2.49/MONTH-for-25GByte. However, it appears I should be able to remain on the "legacy plan" provided it's set to auto-renew.

However, I don't see any information on the https://www.google.com/settings/storage/ (or on Google Wallet's "subscriptions" page, which seems to be a logical place it might appear) which helps me determine whether an auto renewal will be attempted or not.

Thanks for any relevant tips.

Well google sent me a reminder email including this:

This is a reminder that your one-year Google Storage plan is set to automatically renew in 30 days.

Since you purchased this plan before April 24, 2012 - the date we updated our Google Storage plans - and have set your plan to automatically renew, you can keep your current plan. Decide whether you want to keep your current plan, purchase a new plan, or downgrade to free storage...

(my bold) which answers my question.

Don't give up your $5 a YEAR plan...you will NOT be able to go back to it if you want more storage space in he future. You will be forced to pay MONTHLY then

The asker already knows that; that's why he asked about auto-renewing. – cpast Oct 30 '14 at 19:42
