Examples of how the promotion works
Why Partners Should Take Advantage of the Promotion
To mark the general availability of Microsoft New Commerce Experience (NCE) for Per-User Subscriptions, Microsoft and Ingram Micro are supporting partners to help make the move to NCE more profitable.
Benefits of taking advantage of the promotion:
- Price Locking: Partners that purchase eligible NCE Annual subscription between January 10 thru to March 31, 2022, will receive an incremental 5% off list price which will remain the price for the remainder of the subscription term as well as incremental seats added despite price increases (March 1st for select M365 products) and promotion expiration (seats added after March 31, 2022).
- Added Savings: Partners are able to provide more value to their customers in terms of cost saved.
- Incremental FY22 Incentives: With NCE subscriptions, partners can earn an incremental +1% in Core Modern Work incentives and +0.25% in Core Business Applications incentives.
- Secured FY23 Incentives: On January 1, 2023, Microsoft will adjust their FY23 incentives program for indirect resellers to only accrue based on NCE subscriptions. Thus, the subscriptions you transition during the promotion would apply towards your FY23 incentives.
