What is the difference between G Suite and Google’s free apps?
With G Suite, you’ll receive a number of additional business-grade services not included with Google’s free consumer apps. These services include: custom business email @yourcompany, twice the amount of cloud storage across Gmail and Drive, 24/7 phone and email support, 99.9% guaranteed uptime on business email, interoperability with Microsoft Outlook, additional security options like two-step authentication and SSO, and administrative controls for user accounts.
Can I purchase individual G Suite apps?
No. When you sign up for G Suite, you’ll gain access to a set of integrated apps that work together seamlessly. For instance, you can receive a message in Gmail and instantly convert it into a Calendar event. When you make a comment in Docs, Sheets, or Slides, collaborators automatically receive email alerts. With a single click, you can launch a Hangouts video meeting from your inbox or calendar. Using these tools together improves productivity and gives your business the most value. However, you are welcome to purchase the suite and only use the services of your choice.
Can I replace my current software with G Suite?
We’ve found that many of our customers are able to eliminate their existing productivity suites and rely exclusively on G Suite to create different kinds of files, including text documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. You can work on those files in real time with other people and store them in the cloud with Google Drive. G Suite’s apps work across devices. Unlike traditional desktop applications, there is no software to install. G Suite is also compatible with files made in other programs, such as Microsoft Office.
What are the differences between G Suite’s editions?
G Suite has three editions: Basic, Business, and Enterprise. Basic has 30GB of storage per user, Business offers unlimited storage and archiving, and Enterprise includes additional advanced controls and customization. You can compare G Suite’s editions for more information.
Does G Suite have a free trial?
Yes, we offer 14 days of G Suite service to new customers. Sign up for the free trial in minutes and create accounts for up to 10 people on your team. We’ll need to get your billing details to get your account set up, but you will only be charged after the free trial is over. You can cancel anytime. To get the most from your trial, we recommend trying at least 3 tasks you want to explore, such as collaborating on Docs, launching a video meeting in Hangouts Meet, or checking Gmail from your mobile device.
How do I purchase G Suite?
You can sign up for G Suite online or contact our sales team to get started. When you sign up online, you’ll automatically start with a free 14-day trial. We’ll need to get your billing details to get your account set up, but you will only be charged after the free trial is over. You can cancel anytime. Please note the trial is limited to 10 users. If you add more than 10 users during your trial period, the trial will end and you will begin payment.
How do I cancel my trial if I decide not to purchase G Suite?
You can cancel your subscription at anytime in the Admin Console dashboard, under the Billing section. If you cancel within your 14 day trial period, you will not be charged. Please refer to this help center article for more information.
What is the cost to setup and migrate to G Suite?
Following our setup guide, you can set up G Suite and migrate your information at no additional cost. Our Support team is available to help if needed. If you would like someone to do the setup and migration for your company, please contact a Google Partner to learn more about these services and the costs associated.
What forms of payment does Google accept?
You can pay for your G Suite subscription using an international credit card. Google accepts payments from Visa, Mastercard, and American Express. In some locations, you can also pay by making withdrawals from a bank account (also called direct debit).
Can I pay for a full year of G Suite up front rather than monthly?
Annual plans are offered only in some countries. Visit our pricing page to see if an annual plan is offered in your country.
If I plan to create email aliases for groups, does that alias count as a user I have to pay for? How many aliases can each user manage?
No. Each user can have multiple email addresses by creating email aliases. You can add up to 30 email aliases per user.
Is a domain included as a part of G Suite?
No, the cost of a domain is separate from G Suite. During signup, you will specify the domain you want for your business email. If you don’t yet own the domain, you can purchase it from Google for an additional fee.
Does Google accept multiple currencies?
Yes. When you first set up your billing, you will choose a country where you do business and which currency you would like to use to pay. Your country determines what payment methods you can use. Choose your country and currency carefully, as you can’t change these selections later.
