About your free G Suite trial

When you sign up online for G Suite, you start with a 14-day trial subscription. Up to 10 users can explore all the features of G Suite, including business email and online storage.

During your trial

See when your trial ends

Find out how many days are left in your trial period in the Google Admin console.

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console dashboard, go to Billing.

See the days remaining in your G Suite trial listed next to your G Suite subscription.

When your trial ends

If you already added your billing information, you don’t need to do anything. Your paid subscription automatically begins when your trial ends.

To check your billing information:

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console dashboard, go to Billing.

If your trial period ends and you haven’t set up billing, you receive an email that your G Suite account is suspended. You can still access the Admin console and all your data is retained, but users won't have access to email, storage, or other services. People outside your domain can still access files that you've shared with them.

You can reactivate your account by setting up your billing.

Add more than 10 users

Your G Suite trial is limited to 10 users. To add more than 10 users, you must set up billing. When you add an 11th user, you are prompted to end your trial and your paid subscription begins for all users.

Starting your paid subscription

To use G Suite without interruption, set up billing before your trial ends. You aren’t charged until your trial is over.

Cancel your trial and delete your account

These instructions apply to your G Suite trial. If your paid subscription has started, there are separate instructions to cancel and delete G Suite.

Note: If you purchased your domain when you signed up for G Suite, follow the steps below.

When you delete your account, all G Suite data (Gmail messages and contacts, Calendar events, and files stored in Drive) and user accounts are deleted per Google’s Privacy Policy. If you need to save user data, export it before you delete your account. Also, delete any G Suite Marketplace apps you might have added.

You won’t be able to access G Suite or the Admin console again after completing the following steps.

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console dashboard, go to Billing.
  3. Delete any other subscriptions you might have purchased along with G Suite, for example, additional Google Drive storage.
    1. Next to your subscription, click Actions and select Cancel subscription.
    2. Follow the instructions to cancel your subscription.
  4. Next to your G Suite subscription, click Actions and select Cancel subscription.
  5. Click Continue.
  6. Check the box to confirm that you want to delete your account.

    Once your account is deleted:
    • Your G Suite account and all user accounts are deleted.
    • You won’t be able to sign in to Google services with this account.
    • All user data is deleted.
  7. Click Delete My Domain to delete your account.

    You’ll be signed out of Admin console and brought back to the G Suite product page. You can’t sign in to the Admin console after this point.

Note: After deleting your account, you can create a new G Suite account with this domain. You might have to wait up to 24 hours for your domain to be available for a new account.

Cancel your trial (domain purchased during signup)

If you purchased your domain when you signed up for G Suite, you continue to manage your domain in the Admin console after your G Suite trial ends. If you want to delete your Google account, you should first transfer your domain.

If you need to save user data, export it before you delete your account. Also, delete any G Suite Marketplace apps you might have added.

Step 1. Cancel your trial

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console dashboard, go to Billing.

    Your G Suite and Domain Registration subscriptions are listed.
  3. Next to your G Suite subscription, click Actions and select Cancel subscription.
  4. To confirm your cancellation, click Yes I am sure.

When you cancel your account, you’re signed out of the Admin console.

Step 2. Manage your domain

  1. Sign back in to the Admin console.
  2. From the Admin console dashboard, go to Domains.

    To see Domains, you might have to click More controls at the bottom.

  3. Click Add/remove domains.

Step 3. Transfer your domain (optional)

If your domain is hosted by Google Domains, you can transfer your domain to another Google account.
