Azure Active Directory B2C is a cloud-based identity and access management solution for your consumer-facing web and mobile applications. It is a highly-available global service that scales to hundreds of millions of consumer identities. Built on an enterprise-grade secure platform, Azure Active Directory B2C keeps your business and your consumers protected.
Monthly Active Users (MAU)
Azure Active Directory B2C is priced on a Monthly Active User (MAU) basis, helping customers to reduce costs and plan ahead with confidence. A MAU is counted when a unique user authenticates within a given calendar month.
Azure AD B2C is billed at the following standard tier rates.* Enterprise Agreement customers will be billed at a low, flat rate.
|MONTHLY ACTIVE USERS/MONTH||GENERAL AVAILABILITY PRICE||ENTERPRISE AGREEMENT PRICE|
|First 50,000||Free||Enterprise Agreement customers are eligible to switch to MAU-based billing which includes the Free tier of 50,000 MAUs. Subsequent Azure AD B2C usage will be billed at a low, flat rate per MAU. For more information, please contact your partner or Microsoft representative.|
|Greater than 10,000,000||¥0.0254|
|MFA and SMS/Phone Events||¥ 0.305 per SMS/Phone event|
We listened carefully to customers about their needs regarding predictable, intuitive, and cost-efficient billing for customer identity solutions. With MAU-based billing, customers benefit from:
- Expanded Free tier: The new Free tier stretches further by granting customers 50,000 MAUs per month-enabling more authentications per unique user than under the previous free allotment of 50,000 authentications. Most customers-with 50,000 or fewer MAUs per month-will be able to use Azure AD B2C for free.
- Predictable forecasting: Estimating monthly billing on a per MAU basis is simpler and more predictable than trying to forecast the number of monthly authentications.
Usage-based billing: Pay only for your MAUs. Customers are not charged for a MAU`s subsequent authentications or for storing inactive users within that calendar month.
For example, if you have 100,000 monthly active users (MAUs) using standard features, your monthly bill would be ¥ 2,800 regardless of how many times each MAU authenticates:
(50,000 MAUs x ¥0(Free tier)) + (50,000 MAUs x ¥0.056) = ¥2800
A worldwide flat fee of ¥0.305 is billed for each MFA attempt or SMS/Phone event.
