A Master Organization is an organization with Premium or Enterprise subscription. You can make an organization a Master Organization by linking to other organizations in order to share the same usage quota with the Master Organization.
You will only be billed once for a set of usage quota, instead of being billed separately with the organization-based policy.
Note: Only a Free organization can be linked to a Master organization, which is a Premium or Enterprise organization.
For example, if Organization A was subscribed to Premium subscription plan, you can link Organization E, which partially shares the same team members to Organization A. This way, the usage quota of Organization E will be counted toward the total usage quota of Organization A.
Therefore, billing-wise you will only be billed once for a final invoiced amount of Organization A’s total usage quota. So in the invoice of Organization A, you will be billed with 7 members in total.
