I'm having difficulty purchasing G-Suite.  I keep getting a message that says "There was an unexpected error while trying to add G Suite to your account. Please try again later"

Can you advise?

Good Morning,

 

The error message with purchasing G-Suite is coming after I hit the submit button confirming that I will be billed.

 

I would appreciate any help you can give.

Hello,

 

I would like to ask you questions. If I purchasing 1 G Suite Account (Admin) for $6.00 a month. Can I add 2 users' emails for my business as Free? Here is an example:

 

myname@yourdomainname.com (Admin)

#1 sales@yourdomainname.com (Users)

#2 customerservice@yourdomainname.com (Users)

 

These would be free to add user's emails as long I pay $6.00 a month? 

 

Let me know what would be your answer to this question.  

 

 

Thanks,

 

Owen

Hello,

Each user or email address added to G suite there will be an individual charge of $6 each, so for 3 email addresses, it will charge $18.

Hi Michelle,

 

Thank you for your reply to me. Actually, I was researching and this is not true. Here says: Give a user an additional "email alias" address (sales@) 

 

A user is defined as one personalized email address (you@yourcompany). Group email aliases such as sales@yourcompany and support@yourcompany are included in pricing and don't count as additional users.

 

Example: If bill@solarmora.com wants a sales address for corresponding with customers, give him the email alias sales@solarmora.com. Mail sent to either address then appears in his Gmail inbox, and he can send email using either address. 

Give users email aliases at no extra cost

As a G Suite admin, you can give a user an alternate address for receiving mail, in addition to a user's primary address. Do this by adding an email alias to their account, in your Google Admin console.

You can add up to 30 aliases for each user, at no extra cost. Send mail from an email alias

Creating an email alias lets the user receive an email at that address. To send a mail with the alias address in the From field, they need to set up a custom From address in Gmail. They must also do this to receive messages they send to their own email alias.

So you said 3 users cost me $18.00 what is your catch? G Suite said No extra cost. I still pay $6.00 for the Primary Address and You can add up to 30 aliases for each user, at no extra cost. 

Where did you get that idea cost?  I hope to make you clear this time.  Please respond to me. Evidence: https://support.google.com/a/answer/33327?hl=en&ref_topic=14586

 

Thanks,

This is true if you are using them as aliases. I thought you wanted to add them as direct users. Using the alias is possible under the one admin account.

Michelle,

 

I glad that you understand what I was trying to explain to you.

 

So, if I buy 1 G-suite admin account for $6.00, then I can add 2 email alias under my account will be free? if so, can you lead me on how to start this processing?

 

After that, I will have a primary address as admin with G-Suite and I can add 2 email alias for my staffs' emails under my account. I will be normal bills to pay $6.00 that is it right?

 

Let me know what is your plans and help...

 

Thanks,
