number 3

You can view the products added to your multi-seat subscription.

Total seats shows the number of your team members who can use the product within this subscription. You can assign the Available seats to your team members, so that they can start using the product.

Rate plan shows product pricing. In this example, “volume” means that the price per seat depends on the number of seats. A “per unit” rate plan means that the price per seat is always the same (that is, the number of seats does not affect the price per seat).

Price per seat shows the full monthly or yearly price for this seat. If this is the first product in your multi-seat subscription, this is the exact purchase price for the seats. If you subscribed for the product after the start of your billing period, the full price per seat was automatically reduced.

Use the product menu (product menu icon) to edit the product (that is, purchase more seats), manage seat assignments, or to cancel auto-renewal for a product.
