After reviewing a trial subscription, you can buy a subscription with the same services or different services in the Microsoft Online Services Customer Portal. You may want to transfer your data from the trial subscription to the new subscription. Depending on which subscription you buy, you follow a different set of steps to transfer the data.

  • Transfer trial data to a same-service paid subscription: If you convert from a trial subscription to a paid subscription with all the same services, your data is automatically transferred.
  • Transfer trial data to a single-service paid subscription: If you buy a new subscription to a single service such as Microsoft Exchange Online, Microsoft SharePoint Online, or Microsoft Office Live Meeting you must take additional steps to transfer the data from the trial subscription.
