    Stopping an Azure App Service Web App doesn't stop the charges from accruing. To stop the charges you would need to switch it to Free tier or delete the app service plan altogether. Please see FAQ at bottom of App Service pricing page, screenshot below:

    In your screenshot you have web app on Standard pricing tier--this is likely the source of the charges. The other items in your screenshot are Function Apps on Consumption pricing tier, which doesn't accrue any charges if not being used.

    Hi @john john ,

    your best option is to open a support ticket with Microsoft: Submit a support ticket

    Select Billing in the Issue type drop-down

    Billing and Subscription support is for free in any Azure Support Plan -> Compare support plans
