Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online is available at four different license levels: Enterprise ($200), Professional ($65), Basic ($30), and Essential ($15).

Once the five-license minimum has been met, you may mix and match any number of additional Enterprise, Professional, Basic, and Essential licenses. For example, you could subscribe to 1 Enterprise, 7 Professional, 10 Basic, and 3 Essential licenses.

User subscription licenses (USLs) are required for all internal users, including employees, on-site contractors, and other on-site vendors. All licenses are assigned on a named-user basis.
