REMINDER! Microsoft Commerce Incentives (MCI) New customer add earning opportunity for partners
Following the retirement of Open in December 2021, we continue to have a significant opportunity to transition customers to the cloud through the Cloud Solution Program (CSP) program. In January 2022, we introduced the customer add accelerator for CSP partners in the Microsoft Commerce Incentives (MCI) program. This accelerator increases partner earning opportunity up to three times what they can earn from our core and strategic CSP incentives combined.
Additionally, we simplified the construct to drive transparency in how customer adds are determined and expanded partner opportunity by rewarding additional growth for up to 12 months following initial customer acquisition, with no max cap. This accelerator supports customers acquired through both legacy CSP and new commerce CSP.
View the resources below to learn more about our customer add earning opportunities and discover how partners can qualify for the MCI program.
Partners must be enrolled in the MCI program in Partner Center and meet MCI customer add engagement eligibility requirements as per FY22 Microsoft Commercial Partner Incentives Guide.
