Google Drive Pricing


Google Drive is offered at 4 price points for businesses as part of Google’s Google Workspace package. Notably, the 4 business pricing plans are separate from their individual pricing plans, which include a free version, and are a little cheaper compared to business subscriptions. In addition to Google Drive, Google Workspace plans include video conferencing, and custom business email addresses. All plans are charged per month based on how many users are licensed.

The Business Starter plan starts at $6.00/user/month, and it includes up to 30 GB of cloud storage per user and video conferences with up to 100 users. This plan is good for businesses that will primarily be storing simple documents, for which 30 GB of space should be sufficient.

For businesses with greater storage needs, the Business standard plan includes up to 2 TB of cloud storage per user, and supports automatic recording of video conferences for $12.00/user/month. This plan is a good choice for businesses storing larger files, such as graphics, videos, or larger publications.

The business plus plan provides 5 TB of cloud storage for each user and supports up to 250 participant web conferences with audience tracking for $18.00/user/month. This plan is a good choice for businesses that store many large files or want to run large events such as webinars using Google Workspace’s conferencing tools.

Lastly, the enterprise plan is highly customizable, supporting as much storage capacity as is needed and including enhanced support. Pricing for this plan is dependent on the specific needs of the buyer. The vendor can supply a quote upon request.


Google Workspace Discounts, Add-Ons, and Account Sharing

Google Drive’s pricing plans are transparent and mostly easy to understand, but there are a few discounts and add-ons that should also be considered when considering Google Drive.

Google Drive offers discounts for non-profit organizations and educational institutions. These discounts vary, but typically range from 10-25%. Additionally, there is a free version of Google Drive available for individuals, so businesses can try Google Drive before making a purchasing decision.

For the most part, Google Workspace plans are all-inclusive.They have one add-on that users can purchase in the form of enhanced support, which promises faster response time. Regular support is included in all the business plans, but for businesses that purchase the business standard plan, or the business plus plan, they can pay to upgrade to enhanced support. Enhanced support is included in the enterprise plan. Notably, users cannot just purchase more storage, or support for more video conferencing participants. One would have to upgrade their plan instead.

Google Drive charges by the user, and account sharing is against the terms of service of the cloud storage tool.

Is Google Drive right for you?

Google Drive offers plans for businesses of all sizes, so any organization should be able to find a plan that meets their storage needs. That said, Google Drive is packaged with other software as part of the Google Workspace suite of products, including Gmail, Google Meet, and Google Chat. If your business doesn’t need any of those products, you could likely find another cloud storage tool that is more specialized and cost-efficient

If you are still on the fence about Google Drive, consider checking out some verified user reviews. Similarly, if you want to see how other products stack up, you can see how real users feel about all of the products in the cloud storage space.
