Transfer your account to a reseller

Applies to G Suite, Google Drive Enterprise, and other paid subscriptions in your Google Admin console.

If Google bills you directly for your Google Account, you can transfer account management to a Google reseller. A reseller can manage your account for your organization and provide other services, such as deployment and support. Even if you transfer, you’re still the super administrator of your managed Google Account—the transfer just lets your reseller add you as a customer.

To find an authorized reseller in your area, use the Google Partner Search Directory.

Reseller access

When you transfer your managed Google Account, such as G Suite or Cloud Identity, to a reseller, their access to your domain can include the ability to:

  • Add or remove users
  • Edit user details
  • Reset user passwords
  • Edit organizational units

These abilities depend on the reseller’s level of access. For more information about reseller access to your domain, including restricting access, see Google reseller access to resold domains.

Transfer your account

To transfer the management of your account to a reseller, Google needs a transfer token. The token associates your account with your reseller. To get your transfer token:

  1. Go to
  2. Sign in using your managed Google Account username and password.
  3. Check the box to agree to the terms and conditions.
  4. Click Generate Transfer Token.
  5. Click Copy Code.
  6. Give the token’s alphanumeric code to your new reseller, who can complete the transfer for you.

Transfer tokens expire 14 days after being generated. If your token expires, sign in again and click Generate New Transfer Token and then Copy Code.

Billing after the transfer

After your reseller completes the transfer, the account becomes a new subscription. You now get billed by your reseller, not Google.

If your transfer is complete any day other than the first of the month, you receive 2 bills for that month:

  • One from Google, for the dates before the transfer
  • One from the reseller, for the dates starting when your transfer was complete

After that, you only receive one bill from the reseller.

For G Suite or Cloud Identity Premium, the billing impacts of the transfer depend on your previous billing plan. For more information, see Billing for transferred customers.
