  • In the same service family: For example, you can move from Microsoft 365 Business Basic to Microsoft 365 Business Standard, or from Office 365 E1 to Office 365 E3.
  • From a standalone plan: For example, you can move from Exchange Online Plan 1 to Office 365 E1.
  • To a different service family: For example, you can move from Microsoft 365 Business Basic to Office 365 E3.
    For information about how to change subscriptions, including how to move from a trial to a paid subscription, see 
    Switch to a different Microsoft 365 plan or subscription.

You can combine Enterprise, Business, and standalone plans (for example, Exchange Online Plan 1) within a single 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 Microsoft 365 Business Basic and Microsoft 365 Business Standard, but an unlimited number of users on Exchange Online Plan 1.
