What is Microsoft’s New Commerce Experience

Microsoft’s Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program is continuously evolving, putting partners at the center of the SMB customer digital transformation to ensure customers and partners have an optimal experience. Starting January 2022, Microsoft will bring this purchase motion to seat-based offers like Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365, Power Platform and Windows 365. These offer types are being added to Microsoft’s new commerce platform, with new functionalities, capabilities, and policies that differ from the legacy CSP provisioning platform.

The New Commerce Experience provides partners in the CSP program with new sales capabilities and new tools to manage subscriptions more easily and promotes long-term customer commitment with multiple term options. Once it’s fully launched, it will enable faster, simpler transactions.

As always, interworks.cloud platform guarantees an effortless experience for you and your resellers and customers, making difficult tasks look easy! Enjoy automated NCE license provisioning and billing flows for all provisioning actions like creating a new subscription, changing, renewing cancelling, suspending and re-activating seat based licenses.

You as a CSP and your resellers or customers can view the cancellation window for every active subscription and cancel a subscription or a specific number of seats within 7 days. Suspension and re-activation are also supported by the interworks.cloud platform to reduce the risk of financial exposure for the CSP.

The interworks.cloud platform runs a prerequisite control every time an addon is purchased to check whether the customer is eligible to buy this addon.

Provide the valued autonomy to your resellers/ customers through your Marketplace to perform main subscription management functions or do it through your Business Support System: You can either increase/ decrease the seats, or activate/deactivate the automated renewal toggle.

Transition your Legacy subscriptions to NCE in an automatic way, with the Migration Tool, which is available for you and your resellers or customers. Select a Reseller or Customer, check their subscriptions eligibility to transition to the NCE, select the subscriptions you want to migrate, apply your transition options, and start the migration! As simple as that!

Minimize the credit risk of your CSP business in the NCE with three levels of automation goodies. Apply customized billing options for specific resellers/ customers, implement credit limit allowance to control the financial expenditures of your resellers/ customers, or benefit from the automated suspension of subscriptions in case of non-payment.
