AWS Marketplace enables long term contracts for AMI products

Posted on: May 22, 2019

Today, AWS Marketplace added a feature for Amazon Machine Image (AMI) products that allow customers to purchase contract terms for 1+ years and helps them to secure the best price for their commitment. This feature is available through Seller Private Offers and makes it possible for customers to negotiate contract terms, price, and spread their payments over the duration of their contract. Once a customer subscribes to an AMI product, they can track details on usage, completed, and upcoming payments through their monthly bill from AWS.

At launch, any Independent Software Vendor (ISV) in the Enhanced Data Sharing (EDS) program can extend a Seller Private Offer for AMI products with custom and multi-year contract durations with Flexible Payment Scheduler.
