Google last week announced that is increasing G Suite prices starting on April 2019. G Suite Basic Edition will increase by $1 (from $5 to $6 per user/month) and G Suite Business Edition will increase by $2 (from $10 to $12 per user/month).
These increases will apply globally with local market adjustments for certain regions. Pricing for G Suite Enterprise Edition customers will not change.
Google says that today, more than four million organizations use G Suite.
For existing G Suite Basic or Business edition customers on the Flexible Plan, the new list prices will go into effect on April 2, 2019. For customers on the Annual Plan, the new prices will go into effect the first time their plan renews on or after April 2, 2019. These changes will not impact current contracts or any renewal events prior to April 2, 2019.
Additionally, for those Basic and Business Edition customers who receive their bill from Google, Google will send an email with details specific to their domains no later than February 28, 2019. Any customer that licenses G Suite through a reseller should hear from their partners directly regarding the new pricing, or they can reach out to their partners proactively.
