CSP Store Front

Hi,

I hope all is well.

 

I have a question about whether to create a storefront where licenses can be sold, such as on Microsoft's website.

There's a quick start guide. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/partner-center/develop/csp-customer-storefront-builder-quick-start-guide-

 

and a blog article https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/archive/blogs/iwilliams/reseller-storefront

 

Basically its a template for you to deploy in your Azure subscription, so use the credit you get as one of your benefits to host it so it doesn't cost you anything.

Hi,

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

I have deployed more than 10 times.
But I always face this error:

 

Template deployment returned the following errors:
17:03:22 - 5:03:19 PM - Resource Microsoft.Web/sites/sourcecontrols '****/web' failed with message '{
17:03:22 - "status": "Failed",
17:03:22 - "error": {
17:03:22 - "code": "ResourceDeploymentFailure",
17:03:22 - "message": "The resource operation completed with terminal provisioning state 'Failed'."

Have you considered using 3rd party solutions instead?

Hi umate,

Thank you for reply.

 

Can you suggest solutions for me?

I'm biased on this topic, but you can find our solution at sera-platform.com.  

 

Are you a direct bill (Tier-1) CSP partner or an indirect provider (Tier-2)?

Work365 if you use Dynamics as you can have a branded store, but also your sales team can also control incensing within Dynamics.
