一般購買問題General purchasing questions

問:是否可以使用訂單購買 Visual Studio 雲端訂閱?Q: Can I buy Visual Studio cloud subscriptions using a Purchase Order?

答:否。A: No. 所有的 Visual Studio 雲端訂閱都必須使用 Azure 訂用帳戶購買。All Visual Studio cloud subscriptions must be purchased using an Azure subscription. (請把它想像為您的 Azure 計費帳戶。)(Think of it as your Azure billing account.)

問:什麼類型的 Azure 訂用帳戶可以用來購買 Visual Studio 雲端訂閱?Q: What types of Azure subscriptions can be used to buy Visual Studio cloud subscriptions?

答:可以使用大部分 Azure 訂用帳戶;我們支援連線至 Enterprise 合約 (EA) 的 Azure 訂用帳戶、雲端解決方案提供者 (CSP) 所設定的 Azure 訂用帳戶、透過 Microsoft Open License 轉銷商所設定的 Azure 訂用帳戶,以及隨用隨付 Azure 訂用帳戶。A: Most Azure subscriptions can be used--we support Azure subscriptions connected to your Enterprise Agreement (EA), Azure subscriptions set up by Cloud Solution Providers (CSPs), Azure subscriptions set up through Microsoft Open License resellers, and Pay-As-You-Go Azure subscriptions.

無法使用某些類型的 Azure 訂用帳戶 (包括 Azure 免費試用 以及併入為 Visual Studio 訂用帳戶中訂閱者權益的訂用帳戶)。Some types of Azure subscriptions, including Azure Free Trial and subscriptions included as subscriber benefits in Visual Studio subscriptions cannot be used.

問:我必須購買其他 Azure 服務嗎?Q: Am I required to buy other Azure services?

答:完全不用。A: Not at all. 如果您只想要透過 Azure 購買 Visual Studio 雲端訂閱,您可以就這麼做。If you only want to buy Visual Studio cloud subscriptions via Azure, you can do that.

Enterprise 合約 (EA) 客戶Enterprise Agreement (EA) customers

問:是否可以使用 Enterprise 合約購買 Visual Studio 雲端訂閱?Q: Can I use an Enterprise Agreement to buy Visual Studio cloud subscriptions?

答:可以。A: Yes, you can. 針對您的 EA 所建立的 Azure 訂用帳戶,您必須是參與者或更高的角色。You'll need to be a contributor or higher role for an Azure subscription that was created for your EA. 請確定您是直接在 Visual Studio Marketplace 購買 Visual Studio 雲端訂閱。Please make sure that you make your purchases for Visual Studio cloud subscriptions directly in the Visual Studio Marketplace. 您不可以使用訂單購買 Visual Studio 雲端訂閱?You cannot purchase Visual Studio cloud subscriptions using a Purchase Order.

問:如何判斷我是否有必要的權限,可透過我組織的 Enterprise 合約在 Visual Studio Marketplace 購買服務?Q: How can I tell whether I have the necessary privileges to buy services in the Visual Studio Marketplace through my organization's Enterprise Agreement?

答:判斷您是否擁有正確許可權的最簡單方法,就是選取 Visual Studio Marketplace 中所提供之服務的 [ 購買 ] 按鈕。A: The easiest approach to determine if you have the right privileges is to select the Buy button for a service offered in the Visual Studio Marketplace. 您需要從目前連結到您登入之 Azure 訂用帳戶提供的清單中選取 Azure 訂用帳戶 (這是計費帳戶)。You need to select an Azure subscription (which is a billing account) from a presented list of Azure subscriptions that are currently linked to your login. 因為 Azure 訂用帳戶的名稱預設為計費帳戶類型 (「隨用隨付方案」、「Enterprise 合約」等等),Azure 訂用帳戶是否屬於 Enterprise 合約通常很清楚。Because the name of the Azure subscription defaults to the type of billing account ("Pay-As-You-Go", "Enterprise Agreement", etc.), it is often clear if the Azure subscription is part of your Enterprise Agreement.

另一個方法是嘗試瀏覽 Azure 企業版入口網站Another approach is to attempt to visit the Azure Enterprise Portal. 如果您可以成功連線,您即有企業系統管理員或帳戶擁有者角色。If you can reach it successfully, then you already have either the Enterprise Admin or the Account Owner role. 只有帳戶擁有者可以在 Enterprise 合約中設定新的 Azure 計費帳戶。Only Account Owners can set up new Azure billing accounts in an Enterprise Agreement. 如果您無法存取 Azure 企業版入口網站,請在組織內詢問,找到您的企業系統管理員,然後要求該人員將您新增為 Azure 企業版入口網站的帳戶擁有者。If you cannot access the Azure Enterprise Portal, then please inquire within your organization to find out who your Enterprise Admin is, and ask that person to add you as an Account Owner within the Azure Enterprise Portal. 如果您找不到這位人員,您可以提交支援票證並要求連絡資訊。If you are unable to find this person, you can submit a support ticket and request the contact information. 支援票證需要有您組織的名稱和您的 Enterprise 合約註冊號碼。You need your organization's name and your Enterprise Agreement enrollment number for the support ticket.

問:是否可以使用 Enterprise 合約的 Azure 預付金購買 Visual Studio 雲端訂閱?Q: Can I use the Azure Monetary Commitment funds from my Enterprise Agreement to buy Visual Studio cloud subscriptions?

答:不行,預付金不適合購買 Visual Studio 雲端訂閱。A: No, these prepaid funds are not eligible for purchasing Visual Studio cloud subscriptions. 當您選擇用為您的 EA 建立的 Azure 訂用帳戶購買 Visual Studio 雲端訂閱時,費用會出現在您下一次的「超額」發票上。When you choose an Azure subscription that was created for your EA to purchase Visual Studio cloud subscriptions, the charges will appear on your next "overage" invoice. 通常是每月一次,但因部分 EA 客戶的歷程記錄規則,超額發票可能幾個月都不會發出。Typically this happens monthly, but due to historical rules for some EA customers, an overage invoice might not be issued for several months. 請洽詢您的 EA 授權專家,您是否需要知道哪些額外購買數量 (即不適合使用 Azure 預付金購買的項目) 會觸發超額發票。Please consult a licensing specialist for your EA if you need to know what amount of additional purchases (purchases which are not eligible for Azure Monetary Commitment funds) will trigger an overage invoice.

收費方式How charges are processed

問:雲端訂閱的月租方案如何收費?Q: How are monthly cloud subscription charges processed?

答:第一期帳單中,我們會依當月的剩餘天數按 比例分配數量。A: At the first purchase, we bill a prorated quantity to cover the remaining days in the current month. 例如,如果在 4 月 15 日購買了 10 個 Visual Studio Professional 雲端訂閱月租方案,我們會收取 5 個單位的費用,因為該月只剩 50% 的費用 (4 月有 30 天,還剩下 15 天)。For instance, if a purchase of 10 Visual Studio Professional monthly cloud subscriptions was made on April 15, then we would charge 5 units because 50% of the month remains (15 days of a 30-day month). 自 5 月 1 日起至您取消前的每個月,會依完整的 10 個單位計費。On the first of May, and each month thereafter until you cancel, the full 10 units will be billed.

稍後當您增加付費數量時,我們也會將增加的單位按比例分配至當月的剩餘天數。When you increase the paid quantity later, we also prorate the increased units to cover the remaining days in the current month. 因此,如果您在 5 月 10 日購買 1 個以上的 Visual Studio Professional 雲端訂閱月租方案,我們大約收取 0.677 個單位的費用 (5 月有 31 天,還有 21 天)。So if you bought 1 more Visual Studio Professional monthly cloud subscription on May 10, we would bill roughly 0.677 units (21 days remaining in the 31-day month of May).

問:雲端訂閱的年度訂閱如何收費?Q: How are annual cloud subscription charges processed?

答:每單購買都是立即按購買的完整數量計價。A: At each purchase, we bill the full quantity purchased immediately. 費用不會分散到一整年,也不會按比例分配。Charges are not spread over the year and there is no prorating. 如果您在一年的不同時間分次購買年度的雲端訂閱,您必須在不同的月份續約訂閱。If you buy annual cloud subscriptions at different times in the year, you will have subscriptions renewing in different months. 我們不會將客戶所有的年度雲端訂閱連在一起,雖然這在 Microsoft 大量授權合約購買中很常見。We do not make all of a customer's annual cloud subscriptions coterminous as is common with Microsoft volume licensing agreement purchasing.

問:取消如何運作?Q: How do cancelations work?

答:當您取消 Visual Studio 雲端訂閱時,您即取消自動續約。A: When you cancel a Visual Studio cloud subscription, you are canceling automatic renewal. 訂閱保持有效直至其正常的續約日期,然後就到期。The subscription continues until its normal renewal date and then simply expires. 到期時,Visual Studio 訂閱者即無法再使用 Visual Studio 或來自訂用帳戶的任何其他權益。At expiration, the Visual Studio subscriber can no longer use Visual Studio or any other benefits from the subscription.

雲端訂閱月租方案的取消會在次月一日生效。With monthly cloud subscriptions, cancelations take effect the first day of the next month. 如果您只取消部分雲端訂閱月租方案,請務必於次月一日移除使用者,以確保正確的使用者能繼續獲指派有效的訂用帳戶。If you only cancel some of your monthly cloud subscriptions, be sure to remove users on the first of the next month to ensure that the correct people continue to have active subscriptions assigned.

至於年度雲端訂閱,取消要到原購買起算 12 個月後的該月一日才會生效,或自上次年度續約收費起算 12 個月後生效。For annual cloud subscriptions, cancelations take effect the first day of the month following 12 months from the original purchase, or 12 months from the last annual renewal charge. 例如,如果您在 2018 年 1 月 3 日購買了 Visual Studio Professional 年度雲端訂用帳戶,當此訂用帳戶自動續訂一年時,就會一直保持有效到 2019 年 2 月 1 日。For instance, if you bought a Visual Studio Professional annual cloud subscription on January 3, 2018 then it remains active until February 1, 2019 when it automatically renews for another year. 如果您這個日期和 2020 年 2 月 1 日之間的任何時間取消訂閱,則此訂閱會在 2020 年 2 月 1 日到期。If you cancel at any time between then and February 1, 2020 then the subscription will expire on February 1, 2020. 取消方在年度雲端訂閱的訂閱年度中不會有任何退款。There is no rebate for canceling part way through the subscription year with annual cloud subscriptions.

問:Visual Studio 訂閱有哪些大量採購折扣?Q: What kind of volume discounts are available for Visual Studio subscriptions?

答:「每種類型」** 的訂用帳戶,自第 6 個開始,所有後續訂用帳戶都會獲得 5% 的折扣:A: You get a 5% discount on the 6th and all subsequent subscriptions within each type of subscription:

  • Visual Studio Professional 每月Visual Studio Professional monthly
  • Visual Studio Professional 年度Visual Studio Professional annual
  • Visual Studio Enterprise 每月Visual Studio Enterprise monthly
  • Visual Studio Enterprise 年度Visual Studio Enterprise annual

例如,如果您購買 6 個 Visual Studio Professional 訂閱月租方案以及 5 個 Visual Studio Enterprise 訂閱月租方案,您的 5 個 Professional 要支付一般價格,第 6 個 Professional 有 5% 的折扣,而 5 個 Enterprise 訂閱則全都要支付一般價格。So for example, if you buy 6 Visual Studio Professional monthly subscriptions and 5 Visual Studio Enterprise monthly subscriptions, you'll pay the regular price on 5 Professional, get a 5% discount on the 6th Professional, and pay regular price on all 5 Enterprise subscriptions.

而且,折扣僅適用於指定的月租方案計費期費用。Also, the discount only applies to charges in a given monthly billing period. 因此,如果您在一個月內購買了 5 個 Visual Studio Professional 訂用帳戶的年度訂閱,然後在次月又購買了 5 個,則所有 10 個訂用帳戶都要支付一般價格。So if you buy 5 Visual Studio Professional annual subscriptions in one month, and then you buy 5 more the next month, you'll pay the regular price on all 10 subscriptions.

注意

Microsoft 不再於雲端訂用帳戶中提供 Visual Studio Professional 年度訂用帳戶和 Visual Studio Enterprise 年度訂用帳戶。Microsoft no longer offers Visual Studio Professional Annual subscriptions and Visual Studio Enterprise Annual subscriptions in Cloud Subscriptions. 現有的客戶體驗,以及更新、增加、減少或取消其訂用帳戶的能力將不會改變。There will be no change to existing customers experience and ability to renew, increase, decrease, or cancel their subscriptions. 建議新客戶移至,以 https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/vs/pricing/ 探索購買 Visual Studio 的不同選項。New customers are encouraged to go to https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/vs/pricing/ to explore different options to purchase Visual Studio.
