Direct debit payment
Please Microsoft should add the direct debit payment method to automate the payment process through the bank. The limit of the credit card can be and is an impediment when we have many contracted services.
Thanks for the feedback. We agree, and we’re looking into doing this in the next calendar year.
In the interim, if credit card limits are a concern, you do have the option to pay by check or wire transfer. Please contact Support to get this set up.

I am hoping Microsoft setup direct debit option, makes life easier for everybody and no payments missed.

Almost one year has passed... no updates about this issue? :(

Apparently this translates as "add the ability to apply Cryptocurrency"
Not sure I would see this as a big priority right now, they have more fundamental stuff to work on... like being able to email an invoice to someone besides the admin :)
I agree, we've had no end of problems with invoice payments e.g. billing emails being missed by finance, people leaving and not passing on the process for Azure payments etc... We had to go down the invoice route; as our company actively discourages regular payments by credit card.
By not having a direct debit option is causing our business real problems. The CC that was set up has expired and the service has been stopped. Why is the no direct debit option? Tax fiddling/dodging I would imagine!
Any update on the direct debit payment microsoft?
