Microsoft 365 has many subscription plans which range from as low as $5 to $35 per user per month.
On the “For home” category, there are two plans:
Microsoft 365 Family, as its name suggests, is good for six people and costs $99.99 per year or $9.99 per month.
The Personal plan is for one person only and costs $69.99 per year or $6.99 per month.
Both plans offer the same features and benefits.
The “For business” category has four plans:
- Microsoft 365 Business Basic
- Microsoft 365 Business Standard
- Microsoft 365 Business Premium
- Microsoft 365 Apps
The Basic plan only costs $5 per user per month. This is cheap but you should know that this plan doesn’t include desktop applications, only web and mobile versions of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint are included.
The Standard plan costs $12.50 per user per month which is great for companies that need full remote work and collaboration tools. The difference between this plan and the Basic plan is that Standard includes desktop applications of premium Office apps.
The Business Premium plan costs $20 per user per month which includes everything in the previous plan plus advanced cyberthreat protection and device management.
The Microsoft 365 Apps plan only includes the Office apps across devices and cloud file storage. This costs only $8.25 per user per month.
Aside from the “For business” category, there are also plans made for enterprises.
