  1. Add SEPA Direct Debit as a payment method

    SEPA Direct Debit is the standard way to pay for regular subscriptions for European companies and citizens.

    SEPA Direct Debit is a Europe-wide Direct Debit system that allows merchants to collect Euro-denominated payments from accounts in the 34 SEPA countries and associated territories.

    Can Azure please support this payment method?

  2. Free Account without Credit Card

    As much as it is stated the credit card will not be charged I am reluctance to provide my credit card details for obvious reasons. I think it is absolutely stopping IT professionals like em to explore cloud technologies.

  5. Import VM List (CSV/Excel) into Pricing Calculator

    Estimating the appropriate Azure VM T-Shirt sizes for migration or ASR planning would be easier if we could import a CSV or Excel file that contained the minimum required info to determine the initial VM sizes and prices. Without using Azure Migrate, or another data collection tool, I understand the performance factor based on workload could not be accurately identified, but it would provide a good starting point for organizations that need this info quickly, or are unable to run additional tools on-premises. Also including a filter to prioritize the workload generically (Compute-Intensive, Memory-Intensive, Disk-Intensive, etc.) could help to further…

  6. Please remove popup message that requires customers from Ukraine to sign and send the Microsoft Online Subscription Agreement.

    "Customers in Ukraine are required to print, sign and return to Microsoft the Microsoft Online Subscription Agreement (Agreement) promptly upon purchase of your subscription.

  7. Billing tags

    Use tags on resource group level for billing in EA portal.
    Currently we have to tag all sources within a resource group for billing information in the EA portal. It would be more efficient if the tags on the resource group level are used in the reports

    This is great feedback and while we don’t have plans to include this on our roadmap in the near future, we will certainly follow up with the other stakeholders to determine the next steps to getting this feature supported.

  8. Prepaid credit card payment option

    Please enable pre-paid credit card payment option. One of my clients needs to purchase SQL Database from Azure. But I don’t have a credit card. Normally I using pre-paid credit card for online purchase. But Azure does not support prepaid credit card. This will reduce some customers from Azure. I think if this option will enable will get more customers.

  10. Remove PAN card requirement for Microsoft Imagine students in India

    Signing up for Azure in India requires a PAN card, which students signing up through Imagine do not have as it is only issued to majors with a source of income.

  11. Change the Azure Sponsorship grants back to $5000 and offer the new $1500 program as an option

    Hi,
    I have been using your sponsorship program for the past 2 years and I have turned dozens of non-profits to it. I love what it has done for small non-profits. Recently I learned that you reduced the max donation annually from $5000 to $3500. This is has really hurt my non-profit plus others. You have added a new program subscription and removed $1500 for something that my non-profit and most small non-profits will never use because we are small. I can see some merits to the new $1500 program for a multi million dollar non-profit but $1500 is a…

  12. Allow consumption of 3rd Party services under Enterprise Agreement

    Enterprise customers need a way to consume 3rd Party services like ClearDB's MySQL and Tinfoil Security's App Service Vulnerability Scanning. Ideally consumption of these services would be covered by EA funds as well.

    Hi Ben,

    Under your Enterprise Agreement you can purchase Marketplace (3rd party) products and services. These charges will be billed as an overage on either a monthly or quarterly basis.

    We have planned a feature to enable the use of your commitment dollars for the purchase of Marketplace but the timing is currently TBD.

    We appreciate your feedback.

  13. Block subscription creation policy for non-global admin users (MPN Agreement)

    Users that are not global admin or are in restricted groups, should not be able to create any new subscriptions under the main tenant.
    Specially if this tenant is under a MPN agreement.

  14. credit card

    is it really necessary to ask for a credit card to try a product ? I don't like it the idea of worrying for another place I've given my financial information to, maybe this is a poor choice from the team that is responsible for putting this product on the market ! whatever it is, I hope this will get fixed and more possible future clients will have the possibility to try this without worrying about credit cards and such.

  15. Azure Developer Support Invoices NOT Accessible by our Administration Billing Reader

    Issue: Azure Developer Support Invoices Accessible by our Administration Billing Reader

    Currently our Administration, responsible for paying invoices cannot access the Developer Subscription Invoices.

    Meaning, every month our Administration is depended on IT, to manually download the invoices and send them by mail.

    There are three solutions:
    Either bring the Developer Support Invoices to the new portal.azure.com
    or
    Give us Accessibility to Manage Permissions on
    https://account.azure.com/Subscriptions
    or
    Having the option to assign an e-mailaddress to the Developer Support Invoices and send the invoices automaticly to the supplied e-mailadres.

    Please Resolve This!

    Thanks

  16. Azure Price calculator to show EA agreement prices

    We find the Azure price calculator very usefull (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/calculator/), however it provide the "list" prices and not our own EA discounts. One option is to build our own calculator but I assume that will be a costly development project so the question is: Is there any plan to make the price calculator "tuned" with our coroprate prices. E.g that we can logon with our AzureAD credentials and then get the correct prices?

    Or alternative solution, that the export from the price calculator to Excel inlcude the part-number (and service name) so we can do some macro in Excel…

  17. Recognize valid zip codes

    Your signup page does not recognize valid zip codes and will does not an account to be created with what it incorrectly describes as an invalid zip code.

    Also, if my zip code is the invalid piece of data on the form, why do the credit card number and CVV fields get blanked out while the "invalid" zip code is left in place? Only the information deemed invalid should be removed from the form.

  18. VAT ID

    Your VAT ID field fails to accept valid UK VAT IDs, and instead returns the bug "Please enter a valid VAT ID". UK VAT IDs are 9 numbers.

    Our company VAT ID is 141395325 for troubleshooting.

    Look here for a list of valid VAT ID formats:

    https://www.vatlive.com/eu-vat-rules/eu-vat-number-registration/eu-vat-number-formats/

    We cannot sign up to this service until it accepts a VAT ID, nor can we recommend it to any of our clients until this is fixed.

  19. Allow users to remove themselves from subscriptions

    I would like the ability to remove my account from an Azure subscription. As a consultant, I use my Microsoft account to gain access to client Azure subscriptions. At the end of the engagement, it can sometimes prove difficult to have them remove my account. I would like the ability to remove my account from a subscription without having to get someone else to do it. This would provide a huge benefit when accessing the portal as well as using Azure PowerShell.

  20. Allow all Billing Administrators to update payment methods

    Only the account creator can update the payment method. This is really limiting when there are payment issues with a CC. Our billing administrator cannot update it. And co-administrators or others with full admin access can update it. Only the creator. This is very limiting and makes managing the account challenging. AWS lets me do this!
