Frequently Asked Questions
How do I sign up?
If you are eligible, your free trial will start when you sign up for Google Cloud Platform. To sign up, sign in or create a Google Account. You will also need a credit card or bank account details so we can verify your identity. You will not be charged or billed during your free trial.
What’s included in the free trial?
$300 in credit to spend on all Google Cloud Platform products over 60 days. During the free trial, there are some product limitations. For example, when you launch virtual machines using Google Compute Engine, you can only run eight cores at a time.
Who’s eligible for the free trial?
The free trial is a one-time introduction to the platform for new customers. If you have never been a paying customer of Google Cloud Platform and have not previously signed up for the free trial, you are eligible.
Do I pay anything for the free trial?
No, the trial is free and you will not be billed. When your trial ends, your account will be paused and you’ll have the option to upgrade to a paid account. After signing up, you might notice a $0.00 – $1.00 transaction from Google, which is a pending authorization request and is not an actual charge. Learn more
How long does the free trial last?
Your trial ends once 60 days have elapsed or you’ve spent $300. The amount of credit and days remaining are displayed at the top of the Google Cloud Platform Console.
What are the Terms of Service for the free trial?

Can I cancel my trial?
If you want to leave the free trial, there’s nothing to do. Your trial automatically expires after 60 days and you will not be charged during the free trial period unless you upgrade to a paid account.

What happens when my free trial ends?
After your trial ends, the data and resources you created during the trial remain available for an additional 30 days. If you upgrade to a paid account in that 30-day window, you’ll have access to those resources.
How does a free trial work with Google App Engine daily quota?
Only the portion of your App Engine usage above the App Engine free daily quota is charged against your $300 credit. In addition, if your App Engine usage is below the free daily quota, your app will continue to run even after the free trial ends.
Can I use the $300 credit on other Google APIs?
You can use the $300 credits to call any paid Google APIs or for any Google Cloud Platform services.
