Hi, I used Azure Maps service this month, and the usage times did not exceed the free usage limits per month, but it still incurred expenses in the cost analysis. Why this cost was incurred?

    psj Greetings!

    In addition to Sedat response, please see below information for more details.

    I used Azure Maps service this month, and the usage times did not exceed the free usage limits per month, but it still incurred expenses in the cost analysis. Why this cost was incurred?

    Azure Maps Services generate transactions, and some of these transactions are billable.

    The billable transactions will show up in your Cost Analysis report within the Azure portal.

    It is important to understand which usage generates a billable transaction and how it's calculated so you can plan and budget for the costs associated with using Azure Maps. For more information about Azure Maps Transactions, see Understanding Azure Maps Transactions.

    You can also create a free billing and subscription management support ticket for more details on your billing which is available to all Azure customers. Please see how to Create an Azure support request.

    I hope this helps. If you have any further questions, please let me know.

    https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/azure-maps/

    Some services within Azure Maps have their own unit of measurement for pricing, such as Creator Map provisioning which is billed per resource unit per hour, and other features billed per 1,000 transactions like Map render, Feature state, and Web feature transactions

    Also, I offer to check your account to see if it is gen1 or gen2 pricing layer

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-maps/how-to-manage-pricing-tier#:~:text=10%2F12%2F2023%207%20contributors%20Feedback%20In,will%20be%20retired%20on%209%2F15%2F26

    Azure Maps recently transitioned to a new pricing tier, Gen 2, which provides access to all map features with volume-based discounts. If your account was on the Gen 1 pricing tier, it's recommended to switch to Gen 2 to continue enjoying the service.
