Renewals, cancellations, and billing

  • Recurring billing is the simplest way to ensure continued service. You can set up monthly or annual recurring billing by visiting the Microsoft Account site.

    If you have a monthly subscription, you can save money by converting it to an annual subscription at the Microsoft Account site.
  • As the expiration date approaches, you will receive notifications in the Office apps and via email, alerting you to the upcoming expiration. If you choose to let your subscription expire, the Office apps enter read-only mode, which means that you can view or print documents, but you can’t create new documents or edit existing documents.

    In read-only mode, you can still access and download your files for up to three months by signing into OneDrive directly using the Microsoft account you used to set up Microsoft 365. However, the additional storage that comes with your subscription is lost, so you must save your files elsewhere or buy more OneDrive storage if your OneDrive account exceeds the free storage quota of 5 GB.

    Note: If you need to create or edit Office documents, you can use online versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote for free at Office.com. If you're using a Windows 10 device, you may already have the free Office Mobile apps installed. To learn more, see Office Mobile apps for Windows 10: Getting started.

If you are signed up for a monthly subscription, your payment will be debited each month and you won’t be notified in advance. You can change your payment method or cancel your subscription to stop future charges at any time by visiting your Microsoft account and signing in with the Microsoft account that you used to buy Microsoft 365.
  • You have a few options to continue your subscription. Regardless of the option you choose, be sure to use the same Microsoft account that you used when setting up your subscription.

    If you have a recurring billing subscription, it will continue until cancelled. Your billing settings are shown on the Microsoft Account site after you sign in with the Microsoft account that you used to buy Microsoft 365.

    If recurring billing is not enabled, visit the Microsoft 365 renewal page to purchase a Microsoft 365 recurring billing subscription. The additional time will be automatically added to the remaining time on your existing subscription.
  • Yes. When you pay early to the same Microsoft 365 plan that you already have, the additional time is added to your existing subscription. For example, if you have 2 months left on your current subscription to Microsoft 365 Family and you pay for a one year subscription (12 months), your subscription will run for 14 more months.
  • If you purchased a recurring billing subscription from Microsoft via Microsoft Store or microsoft365.com, you have two options for cancelling:

    • You can cancel online by visiting the Microsoft Account site, signing in with the Microsoft account that you used to buy your subscription, and then turning off recurring billing. With this approach, your subscription will automatically expire when your remaining subscription time is up.
       
    • To cancel immediately, contact Microsoft support and request an immediate cancellation.


    If you purchased a recurring billing subscription from another retailer, you may have to cancel your subscription with that retailer. You can confirm this by visiting the Microsoft Account site.
