Major Changes to CSP – Microsoft’s New Commerce Experience

Monday 23rd August 2021

Microsoft have announced that in October 2021, they will bring seat-based cloud offers to the new commerce experience for Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365, and Power Platform, as well as Windows 365.

The new commerce experience in CSP means that you will have:

  • Three-year terms for M365 exclusively in new commerce in March 2022.
  • New offers for M365 and D365 exclusive to new commerce.
  • Three-year term offers for D365, similar to the existing experience in CSP.
  • New monthly-term offers with a price premium for customers who need term and seat-count flexibility.
  • Annual term offers with competitive pricing for stable, long-term customers.
  • The option to blend short- and long-term offers for customers with seasonal or business-volume fluctuations.

In October Microsoft will be launching a promotion as part of this update, contact your account manager to discuss your options which include:

  • How to defer the announced 10% price increase
  • Receive a 5% discount for committing to an annual offer prior to March 2022
  • Purchase the new monthly term offer, thus providing flexibility, at today’s annual commitment price
