All services are billed via Azure
During your first purchase for your organization, you're prompted to select the Azure subscription to use for billing. The subscription can be part of your Enterprise Agreement, Pay-As-You-Go, Cloud Solution Provider (CSP), or other types of Azure subscriptions. All services are billed via Azure. You aren't required to pay for or use any other Azure services.
The following links take you to the paid services that are offered by Microsoft:
- Buy Basic access for users
- Buy Azure Test Plans
- Buy CI/CD
- Sign up for Azure Artifacts
- Buy cloud-based load testing. You're charged based on the load tests that you run. By default, paid usage is turned off for your organization.
