Billing for Cloudflare for Teams
Cloudflare for Teams uses Cloudflare’s global network to empower your internal teams and infrastructure with secure, fast, and seamless access to any device on the internet.
Cloudflare for Teams consists of two products: Cloudflare Access and Cloudflare Gateway. You can subscribe to each independently or together as a bundle.
Cloudflare Access replaces corporate VPNs with Cloudflare’s network. Instead of placing internal tools on a private network, customers deploy them in any environment, including hybrid or multi-cloud models, and secure them consistently with Cloudflare’s network.

Cloudflare Gateway is a modern next generation firewall between your user, device or network and the public Internet. Once you set up Cloudflare Gateway, Gateway’s DNS filtering service will inspect all Internet bound DNS queries, log them and apply corresponding policies.

This article covers the mechanics of the Cloudflare for Teams plans and billing cycles. For more information on features and availability, refer to the Cloudflare for Teams subscription page.
There are three Cloudflare for Teams billing plans, each offering a different set of features.
The Cloudflare for Teams free plan is available with or without accompanying Cloudflare paid subscriptions. It provides up to 50 Cloudflare Access seats and DNS filtering for up to 3 locations, with 24 hours of logging.
The Cloudflare for Teams Standard plan consists of all of the features in the Cloudflare Access standalone plan and Cloudflare Gateway standalone plan.
Within the Cloudflare for Teams Standard plan, you must pick the same number of seats used across both products. For example, you cannot pick 20 seats of Cloudflare Access and 30 seats of Cloudflare Gateway.
Users who authenticate to either product count as an entire Teams seat.
Cloudflare for Teams Enterprise plan offers everything in the Standard plan, plus features such as logpush of Access and Gateway logs, certificate-based authentication, and 24x7x365 support with faster response time.
The Enterprise plan is billed by invoice instead of credit card. For more information, refer to the Enterprise plan page.
All Cloudflare for Teams plans bill monthly, in advance. When you select a plan, you are billed for the month at that time. For example, if you purchase a plan on January 10, you will be billed on that day, and all of your future charges will be billed on the 10th of each month.
If you are already a Cloudflare customer for other products, your billing date will be the same as your other Cloudflare services.
Cloudflare billing will prorate Cloudflare for Teams plans when you make changes.
For example, if you decide to purchase additional seats 10 days into your billing cycle, you will be charged for the partial cost of those additional seats over the remaining 20 days of your billing cycle, starting on the day of the purchase. You will be able to make use of all seats immediately.
Cloudflare for Teams subscriptions consist of seats that users in your account consume. When users authenticate to an application or enroll their agent into WARP, they count against one of your active seats. Seats can be added or removed at Settings > Account > Plan on the Teams Dashboard. If all seats are currently consumed, you must first remove users before decreasing your purchased seat count.
You cannot combine subscription plans with free plans. For example, if you have a team of 55 who need Cloudflare Access, you must purchase Cloudflare Access for 55 users. You will not be able to cover 50 users with the free plan and pay for the excess users.
