Dropbox Business Pricing

PlanCostCloud Storage Per User
Standard$15.00/user/month5 TB
EnterpriseCustom QuoteUnlimited

Dropbox Business is offered at 3 price points, all of which are based on a monthly subscription. It is worth noting that Dropbox Business requires at least 3 users.  For smaller businesses with just one or two users, Dropbox also offers a version for individual users ranging from free to $17.99 per month.  

The Standard pricing plan costs $15.00 per user per month and provides 5 TB of storage.  This plan also includes an integration with Microsoft 365, document recovery for 180 days, and file transfer for files up to 2GB in size.  This pricing plan is a good choice for businesses that want to store large files and that want the document recovery and security options provided by Dropbox Business. Notably, this plan offers a 30 day free trial for businesses that want to try before they buy. 

The Advanced pricing plan costs $20.00 per user per month and offers unlimited storage space.  The plan includes everything in the standard plan, but it also increases file transfer support to 100GB and offers additional administrative features like device management and domain verification.  This is a strong choice for businesses with many cloud storage users, as the administrative features make it easy to manage users.

Lastly, the Enterprise Pricing Plan includes customizable solutions and individualized support.  Pricing for this plan is quoted by the vendor depending on the needs of the business.

Dropbox Business Discounts and Gotchas

Dropbox rates are discounted by 20% for businesses willing to make an annual commitment.  Additionally, nonprofits and educational organizations can receive a discounted price.  The discounted price for these groups is not transparent, and likely depends on the number of users and feature needs of the organization.

There is one gotcha businesses should be aware of when considering Dropbox Business.All plans require at least three users, which may make it a poor choice for smaller organizations that only need to support one or two users.

Is Dropbox Business Right for You?

Dropbox Business offers strong features for businesses that need a lot of storage space and appreciate the extra data security and recovery tools.  Dropbox Business is also a good choice for businesses using Microsoft software due to its built-in integration with Microsoft 365.  Smaller businesses or businesses using Google Workspace (formerly G-Suite) may want to look elsewhere, as many other cloud storage tools offer a less expensive entry-level pricing plan or include support for Google Workspace (formerly G-Suite).
