As the needs of your organization change, you may need to change your Office 365 plan. You can switch from your current Office 365 subscription to another Office 365 subscription:

  • In the same service family: For example, you can move from Office 365 Business Essentials to Office 365 Business Premium, or from Office 365 Enterprise E1 to Office 365 Enterprise E3.

  • From a standalone plan: For example, you can move from Exchange Online Plan 1 to Office 365 Enterprise E1.

  • To a different service family: For example, you can move from Office 365 Business Essentials to Office 365 Enterprise E3.

For information about how to change subscriptions, including how to move from a trial to a paid subscription, see Switch to a different Office 365 plan or subscription.

You can combine Enterprise, Business and standalone plans (e.g. Exchange Online Plan 1) within a single Office 365 account.  However, existing limitations on the number of seats per plan do not change. For example, you can have up to 300 seats per plan on both Office 365 Business Essentials and Office 365 Business Premium, but an unlimited number of users on Exchange Online Plan 1.  Education and Government plans cannot be combined with Enterprise, Business or standalone plans.

The following online services are available on their own, as standalone plans. They can also be added to Enterprise service family plans that don’t already include them. For pricing information, or to chat with an online representative, click on any of the plans listed in the following table.
