platform Include Saas Offer https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/msteams-docs/commits/main/msteams-platform/concepts/deploy-and-publish/appsource/prepare/include-saas-offer.md
When planning how to monetize your Teams app, here are some things to consider:
* Learn how [Azure Active Directory single sign-on (SSO)](/azure/marketplace/azure-ad-saas) helps your customers purchase and manage subscriptions. (Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) SSO is required for Teams apps with SaaS offers.) * Understand that you're responsible for managing and paying for the infrastructure required to support your customers' use of your SaaS offer. * Plan for mobile. To avoid violating third-party app store policies, your app can't include links that allow users to purchase subscription plans on mobile. However, you can still indicate if your app has features that require a subscription plan. For more information, see the related [commercial marketplace certification policies](/legal/marketplace/certification-policies#114048-mobile-experience).
+* Teams currently doesn't support flat rate pricing models. However, you can create a flat rate transactable offer in Partner Center. For more information, see [best practices for selling a flat rate transactable offer](#best-practices-for-selling-a-flat-rate-transactable-offer).

We strongly recommend that you verify the end-to-end purchasing experience before publishing your SaaS offer. You can do this by creating a separate offer just for testing. For complete information, see [test offer overview](/azure/marketplace/plan-saas-offer#test-offer), [create a test offer](/azure/marketplace/create-saas-dev-test-offer), and [preview your offer](/azure/marketplace/test-publish-saas-offer). > [!IMPORTANT]

+1. Build an in-app message in your Teams app that a subscription is needed and provide a hyperlink to your SaaS offer in AppSource to promote your flat rate offer.
