Note: This article applies to installing and purchasing apps from GitHub Marketplace only. For more information on apps purchased from integrators, see "About using integrations."
Tip: If an app requires organization-level access, then only an organization owner can purchase, install, or cancel the app, and manage app billing for the organization. If the app doesn't require organization-level access, then a repository administrator can install and uninstall the app.
If you choose a paid plan, you'll pay for your app subscription on your organization's current billing date using your organization's existing payment method.
If you choose a paid plan with a free trial, you can cancel at any time during your trial period without being charged, but you will automatically lose access to the app. Your paid subscription will start at the end of the 14-day trial. For more information, see "About billing for GitHub Marketplace."
For more information about installing a GitHub App, see "Installing a GitHub App from GitHub Marketplace for your organizations."
If you belong to any organizations that enforce SAML single sign-on, you may be prompted to authenticate through your identity provider before you can authorize an OAuth app. For more information about SAML, see "About authentication with SAML single sign-on."
To open GitHub Marketplace, in the top-left corner of GitHub.com, select , then click Marketplace.
Note: This step refers to the new global navigation, which is currently in public beta and subject to change. For more information on the new global navigation and reverting to the old global navigation, see the GitHub Changelog.

On the app's page, under "Pricing and setup," click the pricing plan you'd like to use.
Click Install it for free, Buy with GitHub, or Try free for 14 days.
Choose an installation organization for the app. Depending on your organization's terms of service, this process will be slightly different.

- Otherwise, under "Review your order," select the Account dropdown menu, then click the organization in which you'd like to install the app.
Note: If your organization uses SAML SSO and you do not see your organization listed, you may need to start an active SAML session for your organization. For more information, see "SAML and GitHub Apps."
If you chose a paid plan, review your payment method.
- To change the existing payment method on file for the organization, click Edit, then complete the form to add a new payment method.
- If there isn't a payment method on file for the organization, click Add a Payment Method, then complete the form to add a credit card or PayPal account.
