    MapPoint Web service pricing structure

    Hello,
    I'm building a small website that requires routing and mapping. I checked on the MapPoint premium web service price and it was $15,000.00 just to set it up. This bought, I think, 50,000 hits. This is far more than I need and the set up price far exceeds what I can afford. Are there any other sustainable options beyond the 30 day trial and the 1 year free with MSDN? A pure per-use option would be fantastic or perhaps a collective of small site users such as myself that each pay on a per-hit basis.
    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Only 50,000 hits for $15,000?!

    Surely you jest.

    That's US$0.30c per query. More established competitors are charging closer to US$0.04 - and that's at low volumes (< 20,000 / mo).

    Either MP has something spectacular to offer that I haven't seen yet or I hope you left out a zero in there somewhere.

    $8000 for 0.5M transactions?

    Quoted from Steve Lombardi:

    "Pricing really hasn't changed: still platform access starts at $8,000 per year. For this amount an organization gets ½ million transactions on the Web Service. For higher volume applications where they need more than ½ million they can purchase additional transactions in buckets of 100,000 and that starts at about a penny/per transaction and they scale down to about a ½ penny transaction, for higher volume. MapPoint Location Server will be a component of MapPoint Web Service and therefore there will be no extra charge for it. "
