Business verification - We were not able to verify your business details

I have been a partner for quite a while.  Now that I'm moving over, I'm finding that my verification failed.  The screenshot tells the story.  I'm just a sole proprietorship and work hard to build apps for clients with .net and sql server and azure.  Being a partner gives me credibility in this process.  I'm not sure what my next step is towards verification, but I've seen Microsoft people reach out on here before, so I'm hoping someone will do so again and give me some assistance.  Thx.

If you have questions about your ticket my advice would be to be patient with the support team. They have many cases to wade through and are getting to each ticket as soon as they can. Hang in there!

Hello @Andra 

 

Thank you for reaching out to Olga. 

 

Question?

 

Why they have been asking following information again (I have provided it 4 times so far). We are going back to another circular ride? Please advise. 

 


Also, kindly see the listed documents that you need to submit;
· Domain registration / Domain invoice at registration or renewal that lists Entity/User name and domain as it is stated on your account.
· Official business document, such as a business registration form, business charter, or articles of incorporation that lists Entity name and address as it is stated on your account

 

Best

Hi @D2020Partner ,

 

You are welcome. Since this issue is being handled now, let`s disengage from the public forum and continue this conversation via private messaging. 

I am not clear why you are requested those documents, I suggest you share with me a personal email address via private message to streamline communication.

 

Thank you,

Andra

Hi @Andra 

 

They have just re-closed the case with the exact same text again:

 

"Thank you for your inquiry about your Microsoft Partner Network account in Partner Center. 
The application to join the program was rejected because it failed Microsoft standards review. At this point, we are unable to provide any further details.
We are closing this ticket as restricted internally. "

 

My direct questions were not answered. This is absolutely appalling service.

And despite me asking some very specific questions about process and contact information they have just closed it again with the exact same text for the 3rd time.

 

This is insane, is there really no one I can speak to?

Hi @dangoscomb,

 

I am sorry to hear, then I`m afraid that is what the verification process team has concluded.

This process does not cover an escalation path.

 

Thank you,

Andra

Hi @Andra 

 

Sorry, but that is unacceptable. There must be a way to settle disputes. You can't just turn a long-standing customer away giving no reason and no way to resolve any issues... we are not even being told what the issues are! Microsoft are quite happy to accept our money on a monthly basis for Azure and 365 services, why not as a partner as well?

To be clear, these are the questions I have asked. I can see no reason why they should not be answered:

 

- What is "Microsoft standards review"? Where is this process and the requirements documented?

- Why can you not tell me why we have failed? If this is based on information about our company we have a right to know.

- How do I go about making a formal complaint?

- In the absence of a formal complaints process how do we contact your legal department to take this matter further?

 

I don't see any of these queries as unreasonable.

Hi,

 

I too am experiencing difficulty with partner verification and have been rejected at the 'Employment Verification' step but the page indicates it is the email ownership that is the issue:

Stage.png

Reading has given me some hope. I am applying for of the partner program and have supplied all of the document I can including:

Articles of Association for the company

Company registration certificate from the registrar of companies 

Invoices for Email Domain detailed the Name and Address of the company 

Even updated our website to display the ticket id's.

I understand the need to careful vetting and even understand this benefits me but the lack of any feedback after 2 week of applications is frustrating. 

 

2105310040002376 & 2106100040002982

 

Any help or direction would be great and appreciated.

 

Kind Regards,

Hi All,

 

Just an update, the approvals are all through and it looked like I had not got an exact match on the company name and address + I compounded my issues by not being patient enough. I takes a couple of days sometimes before actions you make in the portal get reflected there.

 

In total it took about 4 weeks to clear through the process.

 

Thanks to Andra for being patient.

Hi @Andra,

 

3 weeks ago ive signed up for csp in our ms partner center. I was suprised that ms was going to authorise our legal profile again. Last time you guys cheches was 1 mont ago and we were verified by then. So i created a ticket 2105170040003317. After a while we had to upload some documents again. So i did. I got the following respons:

 

We are pleased to let you know this account is now authorized. Please, note that it may take up to 10 business days for the changes to be reflected in your account.

 

And the ticket was automatically closed. After waiting for 10 business days nothing happened and I reopened the case. But didnt get a reaction. Can you please look into this and authorise our legal profile again.

 

Thanks in advance,
