So summoning was necessary with even one off spells? Tough system then
Once you have bound an entity, it's magic is essentially yours to use on demand, within limits as mentioned previously. The bargaining for a once off service was usually performed only with a creature too powerful for you to bind.

Was cool that way, because was a rationale on why magic is not your average smartphone.

The invoker needed to carefully consider if doing something mundane, was worth the risk.
