The easiest way to earn extra money on Microsoft services

From 1st July 2018 until 30th June 2019, Giacom partners can watch their profits grow with a new reseller incentive. All partners purchasing Microsoft CSP licenses through the Cloud Market can benefit with up to 35% total savings.

Depending on the SKU provisioned, you'll receive anywhere between a 2% and 20% rebate payment on top of our 15% partner discount for Microsoft CSP licenses (Office 365, Dynamics, Microsoft 365 etc), or 10% on Azure.

To qualify for the incentive, partners must have an active MPN membership and at least one of the following competencies in Silver or Gold before onboarding.

  • Cloud Business Applications (new for FY19)
  • Cloud Customer Relationship Management
  • Cloud Platform
  • Cloud Productivity

  • ISV (new for FY19)
  • Small and Midmarket Cloud Solutions
  • Windows and Devices

OUR PARTNER ADMINISTRATOR IS NO LONGER WITH THE COMPANY, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

HOW LONG AFTER COMPLETING ONBOARDING BEFORE I CAN SEE EARNINGS IN PIEXP?
Eligible earnings for the current period will be viewable within 72 hours of onboarding.


I'M ALREADY ONBOARDED TO THE CSP INCENTIVE PROGRAM FROM LAST YEAR, DO I HAVE TO RE-ONBOARD?
No, you don’t have to re-onboard. However, you must ensure your MPN ID remains active, you continue to meet the MPN competencies throughout the year, and your payment and tax profile is up to date.


WHEN WILL I BE PAID MY EARNED INCENTIVES?
Rebate payments will be sent via wire transfer within 45 days after the end of each monthly earnings period. Starting in FY19, payments will be made on a monthly cadence.


I AM ELIGIBLE FOR THE CSP INDIRECT RESELLER INCENTIVE, I'VE ONBOARDED AND HAVE BEEN TRANSACTING WITH MICROSOFT. WHY AM I NOT RECEIVING PAYMENTS?
a) If the incentive payments are below the minimum payment threshold of USD $200, earnings will not be released but will carry over to the next payment cycle.
b) Partners may have multiple MPN IDs, please ensure that your subscriptions are placed under the correct one that's onboarded to the incentive.
c) There are many other reasons; please contact ociemea@microsoft.com.


HOW ARE MY PAYMENTS CALCULATED?
For core CSP licenses, calculations are based on billed revenue. For Azure Reserved VM Instances, these are based on consumption.


IS THE CSP INDIRECT RESELLER INCENTIVE BASED ON MICROSOFT ONLINE SERVICES REVENUE ONLY?
Yes, incentives earned through this program are for Microsoft Online Services revenue only, excluding Exchange Lite and other adjustments such as Internal Use Rights or trial seats.
