Managing Zoom sub account

Last Updated:

A sub account setup consists of separate accounts and agreements that a master account can easily manage. This requires multiple signed contracts and an owner for each sub account.

Using a sub account allows you to implement unique security standards within your organization (HIPAA/ BAA), as well as separate account ownership, billing, and branding. It also allows you to easily manage your subsidiary/sister companies under one umbrella and individually configure and manage integrations separately (LTI, Rest API, Zoom Rooms)

A sub account is mostly used but not limited to the following industries:

  • Education
  • Finance
  • Technology
  • Healthcare

How to create a sub account

  6. Click Create and Continue.
  7. Select a plan for your sub account then proceed to Payment.
