The Azure Store helps Azure users find developer services and data from third parties that help make the experience of building on the Azure platform easy, flexible and rich. Purchases can be made directly through the Azure management portal, making it easy for customers to get what they need quickly.
The Azure Store makes it easy to find and purchase add-ons, and use them to create great applications. It is an integral part of the Azure Management Portal. Its target audience is developers and IT pros who use Azure.
The Azure Marketplace is a global online market where ISVs and Data Publishers can publish and sell finished applications and premium datasets to business customers. Its target audience is information workers and IT pros who are not building or hosting apps in Azure.
The Azure Store helps Azure users find developer services and data sets that make building on Azure easy and rich. The Azure Store is an integral part of the Azure management portal. Developers can add developer services and data sets to their Azure projects just the same as they would add any other native Azure resource.
In the Azure Store, developers will find developer services and data from Microsoft and third parties, ranging from monitoring and scaling services from providers like AppDynamics and New Relic, to Bing search APIs, to historical weather data from Weather Trends International.
There are many sources of Azure Store promotion.
Free Tier is an offer plan that is perpetually free, whereas a Free Trial is a paid offer plan that is promotionally free for a definitive amount of time.
There isn’t an Azure Store forum, so please submit queries to Azure MSDN Forum. For additional support resources please refer to Azure Support.
The Azure Store Management Portal (a.k.a. Add-on Management Portal) provides many management functionalities for Add-ons. The Portal provides an overview of all of the purchased Add-ons. For each purchased Add-on, the Portal provides functionality to navigate to the services website via single sign on (SSO), view Connection Information, Upgrade the offer plan, configure contact settings, and view a Usage Overview Dashboard that contains Service links and Publisher/Offer information.
The Azure Store Billing Portal provides subscription details for all of the purchased Add-ons. This is not to be confused with the Billing Portal for Azure subscriptions as this portal does not have any Billing related information for Add-ons. For each purchased Add-on, the Portal provides an Overview and Billing History. The Overview gives general subscription information such as subscription date purchased and current billing period.

Direct only customers will be charged against the same credit card as their Azure subscription.
Direct Enterprise Agreement (EA) customers will be charged against their EA. All Azure Store purchases will be billed as overage.
Your purchases will be charged to the same payment instrument as your Azure subscription, but you will receive a separate billing statement for each purchase you make from the Azure Store. This is separated in the Billing Portal under the sub menus "subscriptions" and "store".
Azure Store purchases are billed monthly, and in advance for direct only customers. The first month of your subscription will be charged to your on-file payment instrument immediately when you purchase; and subsequent charges will occur on that date each month until you delete the purchase.
Direct Enterprise Agreement (EA) customers will be billed quarterly. All Azure Store purchases will be charged as overage against their EA.
No. Azure Store purchases will be charged to the same payment instrument as your Azure subscription, but they will not count against your monetary commitment, if you have one.
Yes. Direct Enterprise Agreement (EA) customers can purchase from the Azure Store. However, EA monetary commitment balances cannot be utilized for 3rd party purchases. Azure Store purchases will be billed quarterly as overage against your EA. Please note that the Store is only available to Direct EA customers. There are also a few Direct EA countries where Store is not available. They include the following: Azerbaijan, Croatia, Norway, and Puerto Rico. We expect the Azure Store to be available to Indirect EA customers and the remaining Direct EA countries in the foreseeable future.
Although most Microsoft subscriptions convert from the Microsoft Azure Agreement program to your Enterprise Agreement, Azure Store services do not. Azure Store subscriptions purchased under the Microsoft Azure Agreement program currently cannot be migrated to your Enterprise Agreement. They will continue to be billed against your credit card. To migrate your services to your Enterprise Agreement, you will need to cancel your existing Azure Store subscription and purchase a new one under your EA. After doing so, you can submit a credit request for a refund for the potential month of overlapping coverage between these two Store subscriptions - just create a support ticket here. If you elect to continue to maintain your old Store subscription after migrating your Microsoft Azure account to your EA, you will need to go to https://billing.microsoft.com to maintain your payment instrument on that Store subscription. The Store subscription will no longer be accessible from the billing Account portal.
No. Prices for services in the Azure Store are set by our sellers and standard volume license discounts are not available for Azure Store purchases.
You cannot return an Azure Store purchase, but you can delete it. Once it has been deleted, you will not be charged for subsequent months.
When you view the Dashboard of your Add-on purchases in the Azure management portal, you will find usage information. During the preview, not all purchases will have this capability.
No. Azure Store offerings are all monthly subscriptions.
During the preview, Store offers will be available in a limited number of regions.
You can connect your local development environment to Azure Store purchases, but they are not replicated locally.
No, deletions are final. If you accidentally delete a subscription, you can easily restart it by purchasing again, but will lose any unused functionality so take care when deleting a subscription.
No, Azure will not warn you if you delete a purchase that your app depends on.
Dependencies are not automatically managed for Azure Store offerings. Please carefully review the description of your Azure Store purchase before using it, to determine if there are any dependencies you should be aware of before deployment.
All the offerings in the Azure Store are online services, so the providers are responsible for any necessary updates. You are not required to take any action. However, this means the services you use from the Azure Store are subject to change. As with any dependency you take on an online service, you should monitor for changes that impact your app(s).
If a user would like to upgrade to a different offer plan, the user can do so but take care as the upgrade will charge the user at the time of purchase and any unused functionality of current subscription will be lost. Otherwise, the user could purchase a completely separate subscription.
No. At this time, store offerings are all online services.

The Azure Store is an integral part of the Azure Management Portal. Developers and IT Pros using Azure will have exposure to it every time they log in. In addition to being available in the Azure Management Portal, Azure Store Add-ons will be listed on the Azure website, in the Azure Store Catalog.
Billing is based on a monthly subscription, with an option to define multiple “plans” or subscription tiers. Microsoft will bill the customer monthly for your product/service. The seller will receive a revenue share of 80 percent from Microsoft via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) with Net 45 terms.
Currently, Partners are encouraged to provide, at a minimum, a perpetually free tier (i.e. limited functionality, but something that encourages customer adoption) and a paid tier. Monthly subscriptions are the only paid tier billing model supported during the Azure Store Preview.
Usage Based Billing (a.k.a. Usage Consumption Billing or Pay-as-you-go Billing) is not available at this time but in active development.
You should list your application on Microsoft Pinpoint, the largest online marketplace for IT providers and their software and services built upon Microsoft technologies. Pinpoint is designed to help business customers find applications and services that complement Microsoft solutions, but does not require an Azure subscription. Microsoft marketing campaigns direct customers who are looking for cloud solutions to the site.
Sellers receive 80%; Microsoft keeps 20%
