Re: How on earth do I buy Power BI?

You can't currently without a 365 subscription. It's been raised as an idea to allow non-subscribers to purchase a license, but as of now you can't.

Please read this: Purchasing Power BI Pro.

 

quote from the article:

"You can purchase Power BI Pro through the Office 365 admin center or through your Microsoft representative or partner." - so you can purchase Power BI Pro without having a 365 subscription.

 

So you need to get in touch with your a microsoft CSP partner and they should be able to help you with getting a license.

 

Where are you from? If you are from Denmark we should be able to help you or you can locate a local CSP on this website: https://www.microsoft.com/da-dk/solution-providers/search

Well that sounds promising , I'm in the UK.

I'll be gutted if I can't use it after 11 days.

Has anyone else got any options ? I want to buy the software but I don't want a 365 domain ?????

I've never found it so hard to buy something

I assume that since you have already had a trial period with PBI you also already have a tenant with an Azure AD - PBI can't function without it.

Nope no tenant, just Power BI trial, connecting to a SQL database

Yes, but without Azure how are you publishing? You need Azure to sign in/upload your reports.
