No billing account found for buying products

If you recently became a Global admin for your organization but aren't able to buy or edit anything in the Billing pages of the Microsoft 365 admin center, you might be missing the Billing account owner role needed to do those tasks. For example, if you try to buy a new subscription on the Purchase services page, you might see a notification that says, "You don't have any billing accounts for buying products." If this happens, you can give yourself the Billing account owner role needed to buy and edit products.

If you're a Billing admin and can't buy or edit products, or if you're a Global Reader who can't view the billing account, ask your Global admin to assign you the role you need.

Before you begin

You must be a Global admin to do the steps described in this article. For more information, see About admin roles.
