Thanks for posting @JessSemco2021, I'd be happy to help out!

 

The Business plans are designed for teams to use, so there is a minimum 3 license required for this subscription. This means you would have 3 users under the same subscription and team.

 

The Professional account would be for individual use, but for a business environment. 

 

You can have a look at the list of features available for Professional here (alongside other personal plans), and Business here.

 

For sharing a folder, if the other users will have edit rights, then shared folders will take space in their account too on either of the plans.

 

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions!

Dropbox pro vs business

Christian Rasmussen
New member | Level 2

Hi community,

 

I am curious to hear what the difference between DropBox business and pro is? Also, is it necessary for my company to buy e.g. Dropbox business for every employee, or how does that work?

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Best,

Chris

Hi there @Christian Rasmussen, thanks for reaching out to us. 

I moved your post here, where another user asked a similar question.

As Daphne mentions, the Business plans are designed for teams to use, where as the Professional subscription is for individual usage. 

If you do choose to go for a Business team, depending on the number of members you'd like to add, you'll have to have the same amount of licenses available. 

I hope this helps, but let us know if you have any other questions. Cheers!
