The price of a monthly Basic subscription will jump from R29 to R39, a 34% hike.

An annual Personal subscription will increase from R999 to R1,099, and Family will be hiked from R1,299 to R1,499.

Microsoft had not yet updated its website by the time of publication, so the price hikes for the annual Basic plan and monthly Personal and Family subscriptions were unclear.

The company said the adjustments were necessary to address “changing market conditions” without providing further details.

It explained that customers would be charged the new price if they didn’t change or cancel two days before their next scheduled payment after 1 August 2023.

Those who want to cancel or change their plan can go to their Microsoft account page, select “Services and subscriptions”, and go to “Payment & billing”.
