What payment options do I have when purchasing Azure?

You can purchase Azure using a credit card. Please note that we don’t accept prepaid and virtual credit cards. There may be a delay before discounts are reflected on your bill. You are solely responsible for any credit card interest or other credit card charges that may result. The other payment option is to be invoiced. Once you opt for the invoice option, you can’t move to the credit card option. To sign up for invoicing, please go here.
