How do I transfer Ownership of an Organization account I am managing

The process for transferring the ownership of your account to another person depends on whether the intended owner has a Map Your City account and/or is Member or Owner of the Organization.

When transferring ownership of a paid account, the account will remain on the same paid plan and will keep the same billing details. Billing information will need to be updated separately.

Transfer types

There are a few different user types you may encounter when transferring an account.
