Limitations of a Bing Maps API key
There are some limitations to the Bing Maps API. First, a Bing Maps API key is valid for a limited number of jobs at a time. Unlike Google Maps, Bing Maps does not guarantee a specific turnaround time for your job. As a result, it may take up to 12 hours to process a single job. However, most jobs will complete within less time than this. Secondly, you are limited to two jobs running simultaneously and 50 jobs per 24 hours. Lastly, you are limited to five data sources per Bing Maps Account. You can only process 2,500 entities per KML file and there are also some account limits.
The basic Bing Maps API key is free and comes with robust developer tools. It offers batch geocoding, offline maps, and AI-powered tools.

However, it doesn't apply to trial keys, basic keys, and Enterprise keys.
You can use your Bing Maps API key for a limited number of transactions per year. However, you should not use this session key for multiple applications. This is because the Bing Maps API will only return a special session key when you use it in another application. As a result, you might get billed more than you should. This is not ideal for your business. So, if you're using it on a limited number of pages, be sure to use session keys.
