Business Verification - how to get verified
We have been in the partner program over 20 years. When our renewal window came up on 2/11/21, I could not pay because our status changed to business verification pending.
After opening a trouble ticket that day, there is still no resolution and tomorrow 3/11/21 is the last day to renew our membership.
Calling Partner Support at 800-765-7768 gets a message saying we can't help you, go online and open a ticket.
If anyone has a suggestion, or if someone from MS is monitoring this forum, PLEASE contact me immediately.
@bradpinkston thanks for sharing your cases!
Are these tickets addressing different issues?
Please keep one open case and upload all the documentation there.
Duplicating the case will only extend the time for resolution and you will likely experience delays.
Please consolidate all the information in 1 case and you can send me a private message with the number.
Thank you for understanding,
Same here. Two cases opened, two plus months of waiting and no resolution. There is no phone support. The emails go mostly unanswered and always do nothing to move the case forward. When the documents I've submitted aren't accepted, there is nothing stating what's wrong or how to provide what's needed. Only the same email is pushed back. We are a 16 year subscriber to the action pack and sell windows products on every job we do. In all of my 25 years in IT, this is the most disgraceful and negligent product support I've ever experienced. Not only are you stopping us from giving you money for our action pack but you are dissuading us from reselling your products. Clearly you don't value this channel of business.
I can provide all of my case details upon request if there's any chance of resolving this. No matter, there is an elemental flaw in your support mechanism for Microsoft Partners that will be costing you business if left in its current state.
The reason I posted to this forum is that working with the support team hasn't produced any results. I was hoping for escalation of some kind. It makes no sense as to why they are attempting to verify an email domain that we've been using for 17 years. It makes even less sense that it requires 23 emails to be in the same place we started at over 2 months ago. Again, as a small business owner who sells your products, the time and energy I've had to put into this just to pay for products from your organization is unacceptable. Please provide a solution that isn't the same sitting and waiting. This has already hurt our business.
Action Pack membership has expired and still no response from Microsoft. This ticket was opened when the renewal window started on 2/11/21. Is there a contact inside the company that this can be escalated to? Is anyone else having this issue?
I understand the urgency and this has already been raised with the appropriate internal team. Stay assured the case will be assigned and addressed in a timely manner.
Thank you for understanding,
