Upgrade a free workspace to a paid subscription

Looking to upgrade from the free version of Slack to a paid subscription? That's great news! You'll be one step closer to accessing more Slack features and removing message, file storage and app limits. We've outlined everything that you need to know to upgrade your workspace below.

Note: If you upgrade your workspace at the end of the month, your next renewal will occur on the first of the following month or year (depending on whether you select a monthly or annual payment schedule).

Upgrade a workspace

By default, any member can upgrade a free workspace to a paid subscription, but workspace owners can restrict this. Workspace owners (or the person who upgrades a workspace) can manage payment and subscription details from the Billing page.
