  1. As an End User: Where the company is looking to license Bing Maps directly for use in their own company application. This can be licensed under volume license for end users. The volume license in turn can be 'user based' or 'transaction based'
  2. ISV, SaaS Partner applications: In this scenario, the partner wants to hold the license for Bing Maps to embed and resell to customers/subscribers. Bing Maps is not part of the SPLA program for ISV’s and is not available under volume license. For all ISV applications a direct agreement is required which is available from our Distributor Program (see details below)
