How purchase reserved instance for Azure database for Postgresql flexible server?

Close to a month ago various pages within Azure document the notion that:
Azure database for PostgreSQL flexible server (preview) is available via a 1 yr or 3 yr reserved instance

Specifically, I'm trying to purchase a 1 year reservation for this, so i can deploy an E4_v3 memory optimized instance. We're operating under a CSP agreement, and our CSP partner hasn't been able to place this order either.

Why I believe this is supposed to be working:

Here’s the pricing page for Flexible Server:

Region availability for Azure database for PostgreSQL Flexible Server – the link for that page is here:

Microsoft confirms as of August 4, 2021 that Flexible Server for PostgreSQL is available with reserved instance pricing for both one- and three-year reservations. This matches the price list above. The link to this page is here:

But...when I go to actually purchase the reservation, only Single Server and Hyperscale show up as options -- not Flexible Server (preview).

Any ideas on this???

    Thanks for the update Oury!

    We're definitely looking forward to this. We had to get moving, so I went with Flexible Server on a pay-as-you-go basis to get started. However as soon as the reservation option is ready, we'll likely buy that, and roll our current instance right into it.

    Looking forward to updates.
