Purchase subscription licenses for Chrome Enterprise

For administrators who manage Chrome devices for a business or school.

To manage devices running Chrome OS from the Google Admin console, you need to subscribe to the Chrome Enterprise service and purchase a subscription license for each device you want to manage. After you purchase licenses, you can enroll devices, configure settings, and apply policies to users and devices in your organization. When you start your paid subscription, get the number of licenses you think you’ll need. You can always get additional licenses later.

You can get a free 60-day Chrome Enterprise trial and then start your paid annual subscription. A trial is limited to 10 devices. To enroll additional devices, you must start your paid subscription.

Purchase licenses from partner (recommended)

Applies for annual and perpetual subscriptions to Chrome Enterprise.

We recommend using an authorized partner to purchase subscription licenses for Chrome Enterprise. To find one that suits your organization, go to the Partner Directory.

Use an authorized partner if you want to:

  • Manage more than 50 devices running Chrome OS.
  • Subscribe to more than one type of Chrome service.
  • Purchase annual or perpetual (or both) subscriptions for the Chrome Enterprise service.
  • Purchase additional Google services.

Purchase licenses using the Admin console

Only for annual subscriptions to Chrome Enterprise.

You must be signed in as a super administrator for this task.

Start your paid subscription from a trial

You can use the Admin console to buy annual licenses for the Chrome Enterprise service if you:

  • Used the Admin console to sign up for a trial or signed up online using an address in the U.S. or Canada.
  • Manage fewer than 50 devices.

Near the end of your trial, you’ll get an email letting you know that you need to start your paid subscription.

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

If your trial period ends and you haven’t set up your billing and payment plan, your subscription to the Chrome Enterprise service is automatically suspended. You can still access the Admin console and all your data is retained, but you can’t enroll devices, configure settings, or apply policies. If you were suspended at the end of your free trial, you need to set up billing to resume your service.
