The first step in moving your business from G Suite to Office 365 is to sign up for a subscription.

Get started by visiting Office365.com. Choose For business. Select See plans & pricing, and then Small Business. For customers moving from G Suite, we recommend Office 365 Business Premium.

For Number of users, add the total number of people you want to use Office 365. Choose a monthly or annual billing plan. You see your total before tax. And select Next.

Type your contact information. Select Next.

To prove you’re not a robot, type your phone number and select Send Verification Code. Type the code that was sent to you and select Verify.

For business identity, choose Use a domain name you already own. Enter the domain you’re using with G Suite. Don’t worry, it will still work there until you change it later on. Choose Verify ownership.

To prove you own the domain, choose Send verification email. This sends an email to the address associated with the domain name. Open it, and copy the code. Paste the code, and select Verify.

Now create your account. This person will be the global admin and will manage the Office 365 service for everyone. Type a user ID. This is also the email address that you will use to sign in to Office 365.

Type a password, then choose Sign up.

Next, enter your payment details. Select Place order.

Review your total, and choose Accept agreement & place order.

On the Order confirmation page, you see a summary of your order, including the total with tax. Choose Go to setup to start adding users in the admin center.

Go through the tour of the admin center if you want. Choose Go to setup.

Now add the names of the people in your business. When finished, you’ll see a notice that you’re using all of your Office 365 licenses. Leave the box checked to send yourself a copy of everyone’s passwords. Then, select Next.

To share the account details with the people who will be using them, type their alternative email address where they can receive the email. In this case, you can use their Gmail address that is still active with G Suite.

Select Don’t migrate mail messages. You’ll do this later using Outlook. Select Next, and you’ll be asked if you want to connect your domain name to Office 365 so that email starts going there. But you don’t want to do this yet if you’re still using G Suite for email, until you’ve finished setting up Office 365. Choose Exit and continue later.

At this point, you’re ready to set up software on your devices and migrate data from G Suite. When finished, return to this page in the admin center to connect your domain name and start using Office 365.
