Now, how much do you need to pay to use the Azure Service Bus?

For Messaging operations

You need to pay $0.05 / million operations (In the case of the Basic tier).

For the Standard tier, you must pay $0.0135/hour for the first 13M operations. Then, if your usage is more and for the next 13-100M operations/month, you need to pay $0.80 / million operations. In case your usage is between 100M – 2500M operation/month, you need to pay $0.50 / million operations. If your usage is still more, then for more than 2,500M/month, you will have to pay $0.20 / million operations.

If you have decided to go with the Premium tier, you need to pay $0.928/hour. Note that you need to pay hourly.

For Brokered connections

If you are using the Standard tier, the first 1k is included. For the next 1k to 100k/month, you must pay $0.03/month/connection.
