What prices are NOT impacted?

  • Azure in Microsoft Customer Agreement will not be affected due to US dollar pricing with monthly updated billing FX rates.
  • On-premise pricing, consumer prices, hardware, and OEM are not covered by this announcement.
  • For indirect sales, final prices and currency of sale will continue to be determined by resellers.

Going forwards, Microsoft will assess pricing in local currency as part of a regular twice a year cadence, taking into consideration currency fluctuations relative to the USD. This will provide increased transparency and predictability for customers globally and move to a pricing model that is most common in our industry.
