With the introduction of Microsoft's New Commerce Experience (NCE) on 10th March, no doubt you've got a lot on your mind planning the best route for you and your customers.
Our mission is to make your life easier, so here's a few things we think will help make moving your customers to NCE simpler.
1. Legacy subscription renewal deadline: 11th July 2022
To help you prepare for the next NCE deadline, we’ve put together some helpful FAQs below. You can also watch our NCE update video, which details the legacy renewal deadline plus the latest NCE news and updates as we know them.
What does this deadline mean?
For any of your legacy commercial subscriptions that come up for renewal after 11th July, they must be renewed/migrated onto the NCE platform.
What happens if I don’t renew/migrate my subscriptions onto NCE?
If your subscriptions are due to renew after 11th July and you don’t renew/migrate them onto NCE they will automatically be expired, resulting in a loss of service for your customers.
Can I move my subscriptions over to NCE before their renewal date?
Yes, you can transition your subscriptions over to NCE anytime.
What should I do now?
Because you don’t have to wait until your subscription renewal date to migrate to NCE we advise doing so ASAP, to avoid any disruption to you and your customers (and we have free migration tools to help).
