Is it possible to use Power BI to present data to customers and keep them free of charge?

I.e. if a company wants to keep 100 customers updated daily with a small dataset, then I think the customer may just use a free account. But is there a standard way to give the customer more features and cover the charge without having the customer to worry about payments?

@timvdh You will not be able to share the dashboard if they register with their emails/logins..In order to share the dashboard every user ( in your case customer ) needs to be in the same domain..Cannot share dashboard with external users..If you create the dashboard with your account @yourdomain.com then you cannot share with  @otherdomain.com but only with yours..The only option is to create as @Greg_Deckler suggest users in your tenant ( you must be admin ), assing licence (powerbi free) and share the credentials with your customers..

You could probably just add an ID to your organization and give them a license, but I am assuming that you want them to keep their own logins?

@timvdh Using a free account is the only way where you can keep your 100 customers updated with small dataset without spending money

Exactly, they should register or use an existing login. I just want to grant them the right to use our data and cover any necessary charges.

Thank you. I guess the product is currently geared towards usage inside organizations - not to share data with just anyone.
