Frequently asked questions
How do I know if I'm eligible for the Incentive?
All CSP Indirect Resellers that have an active MPN ID, have signed the Microsoft Partner Agreement, have either a Gold or Silver competency in those previously outlined by Microsoft, and remain in compliance with the program terms will be eligible.

What SKUs are included in the Incentive?
Office 365 Business Essentials, Business Premium, E3 and E5 are all included. Microsoft 365 Business, E3 and E5 are also included. For a full list of all eligible SKUs, please navigate to partner.microsoft.com and locate the CSP Reseller Accelerator Product List Addendum.
When will I be paid my earned cashback?
Rebate payments will be sent via wire transfer within 45 days after the end of the earning month. However, from 1st January 2020, partner earnings will be subject to the introduction of the Microsoft CSP co-op component.
What are the minimum and maximum payouts by Microsoft?
The minimum threshold all partners must meet for any new customer add is $250 USD of monthly billed revenue. There is currently no payment cap, though if $10,000 USD is exceeded you will be eligible for co-op funding with 60% taken as rebate only.
Please note that incentive payments will cease when the customer’s monthly billed revenue drops below the minimum threshold. Payments will begin again once the customer returns to the minimum threshold within the same 12-month period.
What if I added my customer before October 2019?
If you added a customer between October 2018 and September 2019, your customer will still be eligible, providing they have not added more than the minimum threshold of $250 USD prior to October 2019.
