Do all items on ArcGIS Marketplace have a cost?
No. Some items are available for free. Listings for free items have a Get It Now button. Click this button and follow the prompts to get access to the free item.
Can I get a free trial?
Yes, some ArcGIS Marketplace listings offer free trials. Depending on how the provider has configured their listing, a free trial can last up to 90 days. Take advantage of this time to try out the app or content and assess whether it meets your organization's needs.
If a listing offers a trial version, the listing page includes a Free Trial button as well as the trial duration. Click the button to get access to the item via the Apps and Data page of your console.
How can I contact a provider about a partner solution listing?
Instead of a Buy Now button, professional service and partner solution listings have a Contact Provider button. Click this button to request purchase information directly from the provider. The provider will contact you to discuss details and arrange purchase. You can keep track of your requests for contact and purchase information on the Requests page of the console.
Partner solution listings allow providers to market their solutions, capabilities, and specialties to ArcGIS users. Because of the unique and variable nature of these offerings, purchases cannot be completed online like other types of listings. The Contact Provider button offers a simple way to connect with providers and facilitate discussion about your organization's needs.
How can I purchase custom data?
Some data listings have been configured by providers to allow customization requests. These listings allow you to give a provider more details about what you are looking for. You can add details such as the area of interest, resolution of the data, or number of licenses.
Note: This option is not available for free trials.
Complete the following steps to send a request for custom content:
- Verify that you are signed in to ArcGIS Marketplace with the appropriate permissions to send purchase requests.
- Open the listing for the item that you want to customize and click Purchase Request.
Note: The listing only has a Purchase Request button if the provider has configured the listing to allow requests for custom content. Otherwise, there will be a Buy Now button, and you can follow the regular purchasing workflow.
The custom content request form appears. Complete the following steps:
- Fill in your contact details and additional information.
- Click Send Request to send the information to the provider.
After you send the request, the provider will contact you directly to confirm your requirements and process the purchase. Until then, you can see your request and details on how to get in touch with the provider on the Requests tab of your console.
What happens after I make a purchase?
It depends on whether the purchase is made through the Esri e-commerce shopping cart or by sending a purchase request.
If you purchase an item through the Esri shopping cart, you will automatically have access to your item when payment is received. If you send a purchase request or custom content request, wait for the provider to contact you. Work directly with the provider to establish the details of your purchase and complete your transaction. After your transaction has been completed, the provider will grant access to the item.
What payment methods can I use?
For purchases made online through the Esri shopping cart, you can use a credit or debit card to pay in a variety of currencies. Most major credit or debit cards are accepted.
If I don't have purchasing permissions, how can I get items from ArcGIS Marketplace?
If you do not have privileges to get items, you will see the Request Purchase button and Request Free Trial button (if available) on a listing. Click these buttons to send an email request to buy an item or to contact your organization administrator.
