can educational bing maps key be charged? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are doing a project for an assignment which includes using Maps. So, I took the education basic key and used maps in a wpf control. Now it all works fine.

    But i went to see my usage report and it says that i have 150 chargeable transactions. Still, I understood from TOU that i would not have to pay using the Bing maps. My question is, do I really need to pay for using Bing Maps with education key.

    PS. I sent mails and i was answered nothing specific about should i pay or not.

  • The billable means that if you had an enterprise licensing it would count against your purchased transactions. If using a developer account you don't need to worry too much as long as this number is below the free terms of use. Also note that desktop applications, other than Windows Store apps, always require a license as this fall under internal use and the free education usage is for publically accessible apps (i.e. web, windows Store, mobile)

  • So that means it is free for the time i don't go over 50,000 cumulative billable transactions ?
