  • You may refer the suggestions outlined in the GitHub issues, which addresses similar issue

    The reserved instance purchase is charged to the payment method tied to the subscription.

    Azure customers with these subscriptions types can purchase a reserved instance:

    • Enterprise agreement subscription offer type (MS-AZR-0017P).
    • Pay-As-You-Go subscription offer type (MS-AZR-003P). You must be in the role “Owner” on the subscription to buy a reserved instance. For purchasing reserved instances in an enterprise enrollment, the enterprise administrator must enable reserved instance purchases in the EA portal. By default, this setting is enabled.
    • Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) partners can use Azure Portal or Partner Center to purchase reserved instances.

    For more details, refer “Azure Reserved VM instances” and “Prepay for VMs with Azure Reserved VM instances”.
