Upgrade from Essentials edition

If you purchased your service from a reseller, go here instead |  Do I have a reseller?

If your Essentials users need access to other Google Workspace services, such as Gmail, you can upgrade your Essentials subscription to an Enterprise edition.

You can’t downgrade to Essentials from any other Google Workspace edition. Also, you can’t have Essentials and another Google Workspace edition at the same time.

Before you begin

  • If you’re an email-verified customer, before you upgrade, you need to verify your domain.
  • If you want to transition to a Google Workspace Business edition, first upgrade to Enterprise Standard. Then downgrade to the subscription you want.
  • If you switch editions during your free trial, any unused days apply to your new subscription. For example, if on the 10th day of your free trial you switch editions, the last 20 days of the free trial apply to the new subscription.
  • Not sure which edition to switch to? Compare features in Google Workspace Enterprise editions.
