  • Digital Distribution only – $396 Australian Dollars after tax
  • Physical Media and Digital Distribution – $660 Australian Dollars after tax


regards, Sarah Arnold

    Hi Michael,

    Physical Media has not been available for MAPS subscriptions and Competencies since November 2013.

  3. G’day Sarah,

    I’m glad my hounding Microsoft for years over this (including a meeting at APC last year with Paul Voges) has finally paid off.  This is one thing – not just MAPS, mind you, but all Microsoft pricing in Australia – that has been unfair on the Australian market.  Our dollar is strong, our prices are high.  Our dollar weakens, the price climbs.  The dollar climbs, the price doesn’t drop.

    As I mentioned last year as the SBSC PAL, this is one thing that a number of Partners had asked me to bring to Microsoft’s attention (again).

    I’m also glad your last 2 years’ work has finally paid off in one area and hope that it continues to the rest of Microsoft’s products!  🙂
