Manage your business email subscription

This article describes features of business email powered by G Suite, a service that's no longer available. 
In January 2020, we're updating all G Suite business email accounts to G Suite Basic. Learn more.


As of March 4, 2019, we no longer offer new signups for business email powered by G Suite.

When you signed up for your business email address, you started a paid subscription for G Suite. A G Suite billing plan lets you set up monthly automatic payments with your credit card details, making it easy to keep your account active and up-to-date. You can change your payment method anytime, keep track of all your payment transactions, as well as modify your billing contact information.

To get started, open your business email settings:
  1. From your Gmail account, click Settings and select Manage this domain.
  2. Scroll down to Subscriptions and click Payments info.
  3. Click below to learn how to manage your Transaction history and update your Payments settings and Payments profile.
Review your Transaction history

Open your Transaction history

You can view details about costs, payments, and other transactions associated with your G Suite payments account by reviewing the Transaction history page.

  1. On the Payments page, click View Transactions.
  2. Scroll to see a table of all transactions that have occurred in your billing account. Transactions are grouped by month. You see:
    • Starting balance—Your balance on the first day of each calendar month.
    • Debits—The combined costs for all your users on a particular day.
    • Credits—The amount of each payment, as well as the amount of any adjustments applied to your account.
    • Balance—The relationship between how much you've accrued in costs and how much you've paid. An amount in the Debits column increases your balance (meaning you owe more), while an amount in the Credits column decreases your balance (meaning you owe less). The balance represents the difference.

View transaction details

At first, your Transaction history is set to Detailed view. You see an entry for each day that some kind of billing activity occurred.

Details in the Description column can include:

  • Subscription update—The number of seats added or removed that day. Click the link to see more details.
  • Automatic payment scheduled—A bank account payment will take place in the next few days. This shows only if your primary payment method is a bank account.
  • In progress—A cost, payment, or adjustment is underway.
  • Payment—A manual payment you initiated from your Admin console has been applied to your account.
  • Automatic payment—An automatic payment has been charged to your account.
  • Payment declined—A manual payment you attempted from your Admin console wasn't successful.
  • Automatic payment declined—An automatic charge we attempted wasn't successful.
  • Service adjustment—A promotional credit, or a courtesy credit applied by a Google Specialist.

Summarize transactions by type

If you prefer, you can change the view of your Transaction history to summarize each month's transactions by type. Just switch the drop-down menu from Detailed transaction view to Summary view.

For each month, you can then see totals for each type of transaction, such as the total of all your Payments or Costs, all at a quick glance.

Filter transactions by date range or transaction type

To quickly find a particular transaction, you can filter your list by choosing options from the other drop-down menus above the list. You can filter by:

  • Date range—At the top right of the table, select a date range. You can view by day, a few months, by quarter, by year, or define a custom date range.
  • Transaction types—Choose an option from the All transactions drop-down menu to filter transactions by type:
    • All transactions—All of the transaction types listed below.
    • Costs—Your subscription costs.
    • Payments—Payments we've received.
    • Adjustments—Adjustments we've applied to your account.
    • Taxes—Any taxes that we added to your subscription costs.

    • All payment emails (required for the primary contact).
    • Administrative payment emails only—Receives important notifications, such as for missed payments.
    • No payment emails (for a phone contact, only).
  4. Click Save when you're done.
