Offer Types

commercial marketplace offer types for applications

Contents

Introduction

The following offer types are available through Partner Center for ISV solutions.

In these labs we will focus on three main offer types; Virtual Machine, Azure Apps and SaaS app offers. These offer types are transactable through the commercial marketplace and require deeper integration in order to publish.

Virtual Machine Offer

The Virtual Machine offer (or VM offer) is used to deploy and transact a virtual machine (VM) instance through Marketplace. The solution must consist of a single VM. Anything more complex requires an Azure Apps offer. Virtual Machine offers can only be listed in Azure Marketplace, not AppSource.

For further information, see Publishing a VM Offer

Azure Apps Offer

The Azure Apps offer is used to deploy and transact a more complex solution than a single VM. Azure Apps offers can only be listed in Azure Marketplace, not AppSource.

The Azure Apps offer has two distinct flavours; solution template and managed application.

SaaS App Offer

The SaaS App offer differs from the Virtual Machine offer and Azure App offer as no resources are deployed in the customer subscription. As such, the publisher must charge both for the software licence and the underlying Azure resource costs used to deliver the solution. SaaS App offers can be listed in both the Azure Marketplace and AppSource.
