SignUp for Office 365 without adding Payment Method.


A few days back I was setting up an Office 365 trial for one of my clients.
Turns out that recently Microsoft introduced Office trial signup with Credit Card. You cannot directly signup for a trial without Credit Card as confirmed by the post below from Microsoft Community.

In the signup process, provide your email address.

Click on Set up Account

Fill in the Sign-Up Details

Verify the Sign-Up details

Create your Username and Password for Office 365 Tenant

At this point, Office 365 account is created and will ask you to put your Payment Method as Credit Card even to Signup. Hence, I was stuck here and I wanted to find an alternative.

2. Login to

Once you login to, in the new tab you can call the Links from a blog 

Confirm you contact details and confirm with OTP

You can confirm for the trial signup and provide a valid billing address

Update your Billing Address
Once the address is updated, you can revisit the offer and you can activate the trial

Once the Billing Address is updated, you can revisit the promotion URL and proceed with the Signup Process.

Moving to the Admin Center > Billing > Licenses.
You should see the Office 365 Trial Licenses.


I hope this blog helps you in signup of Office 365 Trial or any other trial where there is Payment Method to be added.
