MSDN Subscruber - Utilizing Azure Benefit RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'd like to utilize the Azure services benefit for existing MSDN Subscriber, however to do so it currently requires to enter credit card detials for ID verification etc...

    We are governmental (non private) organization, there is no "organizational" credit card that can be entered, nor obvioulsy an employees private credit card to be used for this purpose. I have no intention to use more than basic allocation as provided with the benefit, hence no relevancy to extra charge resulting from "extra use", i.e. when benefit is exahusted and not available => no problem.

    Kindly advise what to do, in order to utilize this important benefit, so to be able to evaluate Azure potential for the organization. Needles to say, same limitation applies to opening a direct Azure trial on Azure site. Once we find Azure relevant for additional use, we'd consider purchasing extra Azure availability...

    The Azure Support team is available here:  I recommend choosing the "Billing Support" option.

  • Thank u for your reply.

    I followed the link u provided and chose "billing support" as recommend, but alas couldn't find there any available possibility to contact Azure Support Team.

    Would u be so kind as to provide a direct link to enter a question in this matter to Azure Support Team, or and email to them, or some other viable alternative.

    Please note since i cannot activate my Azure benefit, i'm not identified as an active Azure subscription user, hence not redirected anyways to an Azure site where i can post a question.

    Thank u.
