Applies to Cloud Identity Premium only
When you set up billing for Cloud Identity Premium, you can choose between 2 billing plans.
You’re billed monthly for each user account. You can add and remove accounts any time and pay only for the accounts you use during that month. You can cancel service any time without penalty.
Recommended for: Small organizations with a variable-size workforce.
You commit to paying a full year’s subscription for your team or company. If your team grows, you can get more licenses and your monthly rate goes up.
You can reduce licenses or monthly payments only when renewing your plan at the end of the year. If you cancel your subscription before the year ends, you still pay for the full year.
Recommended for: Organizations with a constant or growing workforce.

This depends on the size and variability of your workforce.
- Annual contract With the Annual Plan, you commit to paying for one year of service. There is no contract with a Flexible Plan.
- Removing users With the Annual Plan, you commit to paying a monthly fee for a minimum number of user licenses for a full year. You can't reduce the number of licenses (or your monthly payments) until it's time to renew the contract. With the Flexible Plan, you can remove user accounts any time and your next monthly payment will go down accordingly.
The Flexible Plan might work best if you have a variable workforce.
For example, businesses that provide vacation services might double in size during the summer months. A Flexible Plan allows these companies to provide temporary employees with Cloud Identity Premium and only pay for the service while it's used. The company can then delete user accounts when employees leave at the end of the summer.
The Annual Plan might fit better if you have a larger workforce and your team generally increases. You can add licenses as your workforce grows.
