Upgrade and downgrade options

Switching between editions of Google Apps by upgrading or downgrading is possible, but there are some restrictions. Learn about upgrading and downgrading options below.

Upgrade to Google Apps for Business

If you need to add more than 10 users to your Google Apps account, or you would like to use the enhanced features of Google Apps for Business, you can upgrade.

If you upgrade to the Business edition for any reason after December 6, 2012, you have the option to downgrade to the free edition while you are in the 30-day trial. Once the paid subscription starts, the option to downgrade to the free edition is no longer available.

Upgrade to Google Apps for Education

Google Apps for Education is available to schools, universities, and accredited educational organizations, as well as qualifying nonprofit organizations. For information on how to qualify and apply, please see Upgrade to Google Apps for Education.

Downgrade to Google Apps (free edition)

Google Apps for Business accounts that were created before December 6, 2012, had the option to downgrade to the free edition until January 9, 2013. Learn more.

For those using the free edition now: If you upgrade to the Business edition from the free edition, go through the 30-day trial, and start the paid subscription, you no longer have the option to downgrade.
