Prices are estimates only and are not intended as actual price quotes. Actual pricing may vary depending on the type of agreement entered with Microsoft, date of purchase, and the currency exchange rate. Prices are calculated based on US dollars and converted using London closing spot rates that are captured in the two business days prior to the last business day of the previous month end. If the two business days prior to the end of the month fall on a bank holiday in major markets, the rate setting day is generally the day immediately preceding the two business days. This rate applies to all transactions during the upcoming month. Sign in to the Azure pricing calculator to see pricing based on your current program/offer with Microsoft. Contact an Azure sales specialist for more information on pricing or to request a price quote. See frequently asked questions about Azure pricing.

  • An Anchor Locate Request, or ALR, refers to a developer API call that is utilized to locate a spatial anchor.
  • No. 10K ALRs for free per month. Any additional ALRs over 10K are charged $0.02/ALR/month


    Month 1: A developer adds 5K ALRs on day 10 of the month, developer then adds 5K ALRs on day 15. Since the developer has placed 10K ALRs total and 10K ALRs are free each month, developer is not charged anything for ASA.

    Month 2: The developer places 9K ALRs on day 20. 10K ALRs free each month and therefore the developer is not charged anything for ASA.

    Month 3: The developer places 15K ALRs on day 1. Developer will be charged for 5K ALRs @$0.02/ALR/month.

    Month 4: No new ALRs. Developer is not charged for ALRs this month.

  • Billing event is in the service when the Query is processed for the IDs.
  • Accounts are billed by Anchors queried; each id will be billed.
  • The same pricing is applied per anchor regardless of how it is requested:

    • 10 queries for Anchor A = 10 ALRs
    • 1 query for 10 individual anchors = 10 ALRs
    • 1 query by relationships that returns 10 anchors = 10 ALRs
    • 1 query by coarse reloc using a wifi fingerprint that returns 10 anchors = Fingerprint is used to get the anchor ids and then try to match it visually. In this case ALRs can be more than Anchor Found. You can control the amount of anchors by setting the MaxAnchor queries property when you use the Fingerprint signals.
  • This is billed by anchors queried. We will find matching anchors and we will bill the amount of ids we load. You can set the MaxCount of Ids to cap the cost in CoarseReloc.
