Microsoft 365 Business Basic supports a maximum of 300 users. If you have more than 300 users or think you will soon, take a look at our enterprise plan options.

You can pay with all major credit cards, and your subscription amount will appear on your credit card statement. You have the option to receive an invoice and, depending on your choice of services, you’ll be billed monthly or annually. You’ll receive an email message when your invoice is ready for viewing and, if you enter a purchase order (PO) number when you buy your subscription, that number will be included in your invoice.

You can choose a monthly commitment payment or an annual commitment payment for Microsoft 365.

  • Monthly commitment payment: You pay month to month, and you can cancel at any time.
  • Annual commitment payment: You sign up for a one-year subscription and choose to pay month to month or pay for the entire year in a single payment at the time you sign up. There is a discount for using this payment option.

You can cancel your subscription at any time; you may be entitled to a partial refund. Read the complete Microsoft Online Subscription Agreement.

Your data is yours. If you decide to cancel your Microsoft 365 subscription, you can 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.

Yes, you can transition your account to a different plan.

 

In most cases, you can use the switch plans wizard in your Admin Center to upgrade your plan. If your subscription has more than 300 users or if you used a prepaid card to purchase your plan, the switch plans wizard is not available. Plans that are not eligible for the switch plans wizard can be upgraded manually. Learn more about switching Microsoft 365 plans.

 

NOTE: When you change your account, your domain name is transferred to your new account, whether you brought your existing domain name to the Microsoft 365 account or you set up a new domain name with Microsoft 365.

We changed the name to be more reflective of the range of features and benefits in the subscription. As a result, Office 365 business plans are now Microsoft 365 business plans. New name, same great value, same price, including best-in-class Office apps, intelligent cloud services, and advanced security.

  • Office 365 Business Essentials is now Microsoft 365 Business Basic
  • Office 365 Business Premium is now Microsoft 365 Business Standard
  • Microsoft 365 Business is now Microsoft 365 Business Premium
  • Office 365 Business is now Microsoft 365 Apps for business

There are no price or feature changes for small and medium business plans.
