If you are developing an app for your company/single business, you will require a Volume Licence Agreement. The majority of agreements (such as “Open Value”) start at £1500 depending on your scenario. The pricing for an Enterprise Agreement may vary depending on the size of your organisation.
If you are an ISV bundling Bing Maps with packaged applications, or offering Software as a Service (SaaS), you will require a designated Bing Maps contract which contains language for re-sell. Pricing varies depending on the licence type.

The Bing Maps ISV Licensor program is designed for companies that build and package applications. If an ISV wishes to bundle Bing Maps with a packaged application or is offering Software as a Service (SaaS) then an ISV contract is required.
If an ISV chooses to license Bing Maps in conjunction with their Bing Maps application, they will license at an initial platform commitment level (payable up front) and benefit from a per-unit/per-month price thereafter which allows them to report their sales by month each quarter in arrears. In addition to the cash flow benefit of quarterly payments (after the initial 12 month up-front commitment), they will be able to vary their monthly units (up or down) for the duration of their contract.
The Maps Help Desk is a service run by Grey Matter and Microsoft to help resellers licence their customer's Bing Maps applications correctly. Please visit the Maps Help Desk website for information on how to make it easier for you to sell Bing Maps.
