Accepting offers from vendors

If you have an existing relationship with a Cloud Marketplace vendor, they can send you a customized offer so that you can purchase the software at a discount.

Private offers are typically for a set duration, such as 12 months, during which you pay the discounted price. When the duration has expired, you can continue using the software and pay the list price, or work with the vendor to get another offer.

Before you begin

  • You must be a Billing Administrator for your Google Cloud organization, and must have the Project Viewer role.

    If this is your first time using the Google Cloud Console, you must contact your Google Cloud administrator for access, and request the Billing Administrator and Project Viewer roles.
