Only need the Microsoft 365 apps?

Microsoft 365 is the productivity cloud designed to help each of us achieve what matters, in our work and life, with best-in-class Microsoft 365 apps, intelligent cloud services, and advanced security.

There are no price or feature changes for small and medium business plans. The same plans are available and only the plan names have been updated.

Install Microsoft 365 apps on up to five PCs or Macs, five tablets, and five mobile devices. Hybrid Windows devices, such as the Microsoft Surface Pro, count as either a PC or a tablet.

Pay with all major credit cards, and your subscription amount will appear on your credit card statement. For Microsoft 365 business plans, you have the option to receive an invoice and, depending on your choice of services, you’ll be billed monthly or annually. Receive an email message when your invoice is ready to be viewed and, if a purchase order number is entered when you buy your subscription, that number is included in your invoice.

To provide you with the greatest amount of flexibility, different payment options are available.

 

Microsoft 365 Business Basic, Apps for business, Business Standard, and Business Premium plans are available for monthly commitment payment or annual commitment payment.

 

  • Monthly commitment payment: Pay month by month and cancel at any time.
  • Annual commitment payment: Sign up for a one-year subscription and benefit from a discount for using this payment option. By default, your billing plan will be set to monthly billing. After your purchase, you can change your billing plan to annual billing within the Admin Portal.

The Microsoft 365 Enterprise and Office 365 Enterprise plans (including standalone plans such as Exchange Online) and Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise are available for annual commitment payment.

  • Annual commitment payment: Sign up for a one-year subscription and choose to pay monthly or for the entire year at the time you sign up.

Yes. If you purchase Microsoft 365 licenses for the accounts you create during your free trial, the information and configuration for these users' accounts will remain intact. Once your free trial expires, you‘ll have an additional 30 days to purchase Microsoft 365 before your account information is erased. Once your trial account information has been erased, it can’t be retrieved.

The Microsoft 365 apps that you install on your PC or Mac—such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook—are available to you when you‘re not online.

 

With OneDrive in Microsoft 365, get file storage that you can access when you’re offline. When you make changes while offline, they‘ll be synced to OneDrive and across the rest of your devices when you reconnect.

 

With Outlook, read emails already delivered to your inbox, or draft new emails and meeting requests. Your inbox and outbox will sync across the rest of your devices when you reconnect.

Your data is yours. If you decide to cancel your Microsoft 365 subscription, download your data—for example, your email and documents on team sites—and save it to another location. You should save your data before you cancel. After you cancel your subscription, data associated with your Microsoft 365 account will be available to your administrator(s) in a limited function account for 90 days.
