Also, you have the liberty to buy as many subscriptions as you may need. Moreover, the Additional Storage add-on subscription must be brought as annual subscription.

How to buy additional storage for a single user?

Sometimes, business owners might need to buy additional storage for a single employee or a few employees. Although Google Workspace does not allow users to buy add-on subscriptions for a single person, you can still manage to get the user the storage he/she needs. Check if the users who require more storage have licenses that support pooled storage; if yes, follow these easy steps:

Step 1. Create an organizational unit or a configuration group, including the users that need additional storage.

Step 2. Set storage limit for the new organizational unit as well as the entire organization unit.

What will happen to my Google Workspace Additional Storage when I decide to switch editions?

If you decide to switch your organization’s Google Workspace edition, there are some editions, such as Business Starter or Cloud Identity, that do not support pooled storage. In that case, your add-on storage will still remain as pooled storage, and your entire organization can still enjoy Additional Storage add-on subscription benefits.

However, for specific users, if you decide to change someone’s license edition and opt for one that does not support pooled storage, these members, unfortunately, will only have the storage capacity that is included in their individual license packages and can no longer leverage pooled storage.

Google Workspace allows users to buy unlimited storage to run their organizations.

Another important point that Google Workspace admins should not miss is that they cannot buy additional storage for specific users, however, what they can do is increase their storage allowance by adding them to an organizational unit.
