How does billing work for reserved instances?

Here’s how Azure reserved instance billing works. If you’re an Enterprise Agreement customer, your upfront monetary commitment will be used first to purchase Azure Reserved Virtual Machine Instances. If you’ve already used your Azure monetary commitment, you’ll be invoiced for the single, upfront payment for your reserved instances on your next overage bill. If you’re a purchasing direct through Azure.com, the credit card you have on file will be charged for the full payment of the reserved instances.
