It’s been almost three years since the New Commerce Experience (NCE) was announced in November 2019, creating a lot of discussion around the changes it will bring for partners and customers.

What is Microsoft’s New Commerce Experience (NCE)

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.
