Dropbox announced a new service designed for businesses. Recognizing that people are already using Dropbox in over one million businesses around the world, the Dropbox team thought it was time to create a service specifically for businesses. This is where the new Dropbox for Teams service comes into play. With this new offering, you'll get the same user experience as you already get with the free Dropbox service, but you'll also get new features such as centralized billing, phone support, and the ability to add or delete users. Dropbox for Teams costs $795 each year. This fee includes five users as well as 1,000 GB of storage. You can add additional users for $125 each and each additional user will receive 200 GB of additional storage space.
Dropbox Now Open for Business
Dropbox Launches "Dropbox for Teams" With Administrative Controls and Plenty of Space
People Are Using Dropbox in Over One Million Businesses Globally
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - October 27, 2011 - Dropbox, a free service that lets people bring their documents, photos and videos everywhere and share them easily, today introduced Dropbox for Teams. More than 45 million people already depend on Dropbox, and with Dropbox for Teams, businesses can now experience the same ease-of-use along with new administrative controls, centralized billing, phone support, and plenty of space for everyone on the team.
"People in over a million businesses around the world trust Dropbox for its simplicity and reliability," said Sujay Jaswa, vice president of business development and sales at Dropbox. "Now, Dropbox for Teams will give businesses the control and freedom to rethink how they work."
How Dropbox for Teams Works
Dropbox for Teams delivers the same user experience as the free Dropbox service. Adding and updating files is as easy as saving any document, photo or video to the Dropbox folder. Changes sync immediately across all devices which have Dropbox installed. Dropbox is compatible with nearly every computer and smartphone operating system, including Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, and BlackBerry.
With Dropbox for Teams, administrators get new features including centralized billing, phone support, and controls allowing them to add or delete users. Dropbox for Teams is priced at $795 annually for five users, with additional seats available for $125 each. The base plan includes 1,000 GB of storage, and each additional seat comes with 200 GB.
Like Dropbox, Dropbox for Teams is a secure solution. Files are stored encrypted on Amazon S3 in secure data centers and also remain on users' Dropbox-synced computers for added backup.

Neat, it is a nice addition for business instead of sharing one account or different accounts. Makes it much easier to work together and keep track of things.
This is certainly a nice edition to their portfolio. Now that just have to computer with the Microsoft products such as SharePoint.
Anyone who wants to try dropbox with an extra 250MB and wishes to also help me expand my GB of space on there (they would also give me 250MB), just click on this link:
Thank you. (I still believe in the kindness of strangers.)
This article did not mention anything regarding Folder permissions. Would a team member be able to delete a file being viewed by other team members?
