How do I change from a paid SSL to a free SSL provided by Cloudflare?

I have a website hosted on InMotionHosting that is using Cloudflare and has a paid SSL (which expires soon). I want to stop using the paid SSL and start using the free SSL provided by Cloudflare (which I believe is thru Let’s Encrypt). How do I switch? Or will it automatically happen once the paid SSL expires?

A Let’s Encrypt certificate is not paid. If your host charges for this, I strongly recommend to change host.

Cloudflare only provides Origin CA certificates · Cloudflare SSL/TLS docs but you still need to configure that manually with your host and these certificates are only trusted by the proxies. If that works for you, you can use that certificate instead.
