How to purchase software and manage third-party app subscriptions on Microsoft AppSource

Over the past several months, we’ve been working hard to build an intuitive marketplace that helps our customers get more done and meet their evolving business needs. Next week at Microsoft Ignite conference, we’re excited to share with our customers a lot of the great features we’ve added to Microsoft AppSource.

One of the most exciting additions we’ve made is the ability to directly purchase third-party SaaS apps on Microsoft AppSource. We’re offering our customers greater flexibility to get the solutions they need, when they need them, while also giving them the freedom to choose a purchasing option that best suits their needs through per-user licensing with monthly or annual terms.

The process is simple and fast. With just a valid work or school account and a valid credit card, you just:

  1. Select your billing/country region on Microsoft AppSource
  2. Find the app you want to purchase and click “Get it Now”
  3. Choose your plan
  4. Enter your billing and payment info
  5. Place your order

It’s as easy as that.

Once you’ve purchased your app, we put the power to manage your subscription in your hands. Through Admin Center, you can manage the charges, upgrades, downgrades, and cancellations, ensuring that your apps and subscriptions meet your needs in quickly shifting business landscape.
