Announcing AWS Marketplace Metering Service Availability in EU (Ireland) Region
Brad Lyman is a Sr. Product Manager – Technical Products at AWS Marketplace
Earlier this year, AWS Marketplace announced the availability of AWS Marketplace Metering Service (MMS), which supports new pricing dimensions such as users, hosts, and data. After a seller integrates their product with AWS Marketplace Metering Service, that product will emit an hourly record capturing the usage of any single pricing dimension. The AWS Marketplace team is pleased to announce that these products are now available in the EU (Ireland) Region. Customers can now easily subscribe to software priced by users, hosts, or data, deploy into a data center in the EU, and only pay for what they use.
What does this mean for APN Partners who sell, or want to sell, on AWS Marketplace?
This release increases the number of customers you can reach with AWS Marketplace Metering Service. Sellers on AWS Marketplace can now make their products available to customers who use the EU (Ireland) Region for data sovereignty, latency reduction, or multi-region redundancy.
How do I get started?
If you already use AWS Marketplace to sell a product using the AWS Marketplace Metering Service, you can contact the AWS Marketplace Seller Ops team to make your product available in the EU (Ireland) Region. To register a new product to use the new AWS Marketplace Metering Service, take the following steps:
- If you’re a new seller on AWS Marketplace, register by visiting AWS Marketplace, or go directly to: https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/management/register/.
- Next, you will have to register your product for a new type of usage dimension. On the form, indicate the dimension you want to meter.
- Next, you’ll be able to acquire the specific productCode and usageDimension. When you register your product, you can download a SDK to help you format your metering records. You will have the option of downloading a SDK for any of the languages the AWS SDK supports.
