Before you begin

The following three steps should be followed before transferring any Google subscription(s) to Ingram Micro.


Step 1 - Transferring a Workspace account

ALL entitlements listed under the domain MUST be transferred. Therefore, all entitlements listed in the Google Admin Console (Billing → Subscriptions) MUST be purchased in the Cloud Marketplace to match the same existing subscription(s). If there is more than one subscription, each subscription MUST be transferred separately. 

 

Example - Cloud Identity free and Google Workspace Starter Flexible appear in the Google Admin Console under billing. Cloud Identity free must be purchased first, then Google Workspace Starter Flexible via Cloud Marketplace, before any upgrades or downgrades take place.



Step 2 - Transferring a G Suite Account (See both options below)

Option 1

If you are transferring a G Suite account, you must first change the current G Suite account to the preferred Google Workspace account prior to transferring:

  • Admin.google.comBilling Get more services → Upgrade or Downgrade to preferred Workspace plan.
  • If you have not been given administration privileges to their Google Admin account, please have them take this action for you. 


Option 2

You MUST Upgrade the G Suite subscription to the preferred Google Workspace account:


Example - Cloud Identity free and G Suite Basic Flexible appear in the Google Admin Console under billing. Cloud Identity free must be purchased first, then Google Workspace Business Standard flexible (SEE UPGRADE ABOVE) via Cloud Marketplace, before any upgrades or downgrades take place.



Step 3 - Transferring a Google Workspace Annual plan     

If the Google Workspace subscription you would like to transfer is under an annual (or longer commitment), it is recommended to transfer at its renewal date to avoid any forfeit of previous payment.


Once the subscription has switched over to a Flexible plan you may then transfer to Ingram Micro as a Flexible plan (under grace period). Upgrades, downgrades, or switching back to an annual plan are permitted after the account is provisioned through Ingram.


To switch to a flexible payment plan at renewal

  1. Sign into the Google Admin Console using your super admin privileges.
  2. From the Admin console Home page, at the top left, click Menu Billing Subscriptions.
  3. Click the subscription
  4. Under Plan renewal, find the date the contract renews. This is the date the switch to a Flexible Plan takes effect.
  5. Click Change renewal settings.
  6. Select Switch to the flexible payment plan.
  7. Click Save.


Note If this subscription is still a G Suite account, you must then change the current G Suite account to the preferred Google Workspace account prior to transferring: Admin.google.comBilling Get more services → Upgrade or Downgrade to preferred Workspace plan.
