This article describes how self-service and assisted-online customers can upgrade from a Support or Support Suite legacy plan to the Zendesk Suite.
About upgrading legacy plans
Accounts created before Feb 1, 2021 are considered Zendesk legacy plans. If you have a self-service or assisted-online account with a Support legacy plan or a Support Suite legacy plan, you may be able to use the shopping cart to upgrade your plan to Zendesk Suite and take advantage of the latest Zendesk Suite pricing and features.
- If you have a legacy self-service Support plan in combination with other Zendesk products or add-ons that aren’t part of a Suite, you can't upgrade through the shopping cart.
- If you have a sales-assisted account with a legacy plan, you can’t upgrade through the shopping cart.

About feature loss
The messages you see for feature loss vary depending on your individual account and the types of changes you are making. Messages can include: a list of features you will lose when you downgrade a plan, the consequences of agent seat reduction, the loss of product add-ons, the loss of dependent products, and more. The messages can also include actions you should take before you downgrade.
Here are some examples:
- In this example, downgrading your plan type will impact some of your limits for Answer Bot resolutions, light agents, and more.
- In this example, downgrading your plan type and reducing the number of agents will result in feature loss and agent removal. The changes also apply to agents in your dependent products.
