Deactivate User

In the instructions to deactivate a user it says that in the top-right there should be an option to select Deactivate. I see "Remove User" but not "Deactivate." Are these one in the same? 

Furthermore, if the user has access to the site disabled, are they considered deactivated? Are we billed for users without site access?

I don't see an option to explicitly disable a user per the references you provided.

I would suggest submitting an issues to Atlassian support as they can let you know what you will and will not be charged for -

For anyone else coming across this - I just wanted to confirm that revoking site access does indeed drop the user count and billing estimates.
