Publish a VM Offer
VM Offers are intended for deploying a single virtual machine.
Virtual Machine offers are 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.
When a customer ‘purchases’ a VM offer, the VM will be deployed into the customer’s Azure subscription. As a consequence, VM offers can only be published in Azure Marketplace (not AppSource).
VM offers support the Transact listing type. They also support the BYOL listing type. A Test drive option is also available.
Transact VM offers are billed on a usage-based PAYG (Pay As You Go) model. Each plan can be created with a free trial option giving you the option to offer customers a 1 / 3 / 6 month period with no licence fees.
