When you sign first time to Zoho CRM, you are automatically on free edition. On your first 30 days of your subscription, you have the option to try for free (no credit card needed) any of the three Zoho CRM paid editions:
– Standard (limited to 100 000 Records) – $12 US/User on a yearly plan.
– Professional- for the cost of $20 US/User on a yearly plan.
– Enterprise- for the cost of $35 US/User on a yearly plan.
On the free edition, certain feature may not work*, hence you may reach the conclusion that Zoho is not good enough, while actually the functionality you require is in a different edition then the one you are evaluation.
If you wish to try other editions, please fallow this steps:
 Click the User Icon on the top right:
 In the pup up, you can choose the edition you wish to try:
 Choose your desired edition. You will now have this edition for 15 days to try and evaluate.
Once the 15 days past (and you did not subscribed), you would automatically be redirected back to the free edition.
If you still need more time contact us and we will extend your free trail.
The Zoho CRM installation and your data are always the same. Only the functional capability of Zoho changes by the edition. So changing edition wont require you to sign-up again and it wont effect your data.
* This excel (click to download) explains the differences between the different versions.
Still feel little confused, contact us and we will help you choose the edition that fits your business needs the most.
