Azure Cloud Solution Provider price list

Azure prices are dynamic, so it's impossible to have a standard usage rate for Azure services. Microsoft offers tools to help you get the most up-to-date Azure prices. One of these tools is the Azure Cloud Solution Provider (Azure CSP) price list. You can download the Azure CSP price list from Microsoft Partner Center.

The Azure CSP price list is an Excel file that has the most current pricing information for all Azure services. It's a long list, with more than 11,000 rows. It lists all available Azure services, regions, and plans; all VM sizes; and so on. Prices for all available currencies are included.

Azure CSP price list

Download the Azure CSP price list

  1. On the Partner Center Dashboard menu, select Pricing and offers.

    Partner Center Dashboard menu Pricing and offers option

  2. On the Pricing and offers page, under Usage-based services, select the monthly price list marked Current.

    Selecting the Current monthly price list downloads a .zip file. The .zip file includes an Excel file that lists all current Azure prices. The first worksheet tab of the Excel file describes how to work with the price list.

CSP Pricing Calculator

Another tool that's available is an automated tool that can help you estimate the monthly cost of your Azure services, based on the most up-to-date price list.

  1. On the Pricing and offers page, under Usage-based services, select the Azure Services in CSP Pricing Calculator link.

    You also can access the pricing calculator by using a direct URL for the Azure Channel Pricing Calculator (requires sign-in by using Azure CSP partner credentials).

  2. To use the pricing calculator, select the +Add items button.

    Add items button

  3. On the Products menu, select the services that you want a price estimate for. Then, select the X in the upper-right corner.

    Select services for a price estimate

  4. On the next page, you can select options to fine-tune the estimate for your Azure services usage. You can select quantity of resources, region, time of use, and any discounts or markups you might be eligible for. Under Estimated Monthly Cost, you can see your total estimated monthly cost.

    To retain the estimate for later use, select Save.

    Customize options for estimated monthly cost

Get prices by using the Azure Rate Card

You also can use Azure Rate Card to get Azure service rates, without going through Partner Center portal. Azure pricing is quite dynamic and changes frequently. Azure CSP price list is published on Partner Center portal (go to the Dashboard, then select Sales), but this REST API provides the fastest way for Cloud Solution Provider partners to get current prices.


You can't use native Azure Resource RateCard API to get prices for Azure CSP Subscription. Azure Rate Card should be accessed through Partner Center API instead.
