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.

Hi @Andra ,

 

We are stuck at 'business verification' for last 2 weeks (submitted additional docs a week ago, after initial 'failed' state).

I see our case #2107130040005722 has modified date of yesterday but still the same status, 'Open'.

Any help with this one?

 

Thanks in advance,

Ovi

Hi @Andra,

 

Would it be possible for someone at Microsoft to give us a heads up here?  Is the partner program being discontinued or significantly changed in some way Microsoft has not yet acknowledged?  

It seems odd that so many businesses would simply be stuck in their tracks attempting to become or maintain MS partnerships. Maybe we should all hold off for a while and look for other business while MS decides what it's going to do?

HI @JMBunch 

 

I appreciate the feedback and there isn`t a public communication released on this topic. Typically in Partner Center you can find any additional information when submitting a case to support.

Also I replied to you on this thread: Re: Joining MPN stuck on Employment verification - Page 3 - Microsoft Partner Community

Thank you,

Andra

Thank-you for responding. I truly appreciate it.

 

I received a single email from MS Support on July 21 in reply to my support ticket. This message indicated that the entire process should take three weeks. It also indicated that I would hear from the Account Verification Team within 48 hours. 

 

I haven't heard a thing since.

Hi, @Andra 

 

case number: 2106240040001991

 

My case for application for a Microsoft Partner, has been stuck for a month now, I was requested to submit documents to help validate the application, I did this but I have had no reply. I have had no technician call to help, I have phoned daily for help, and I am told by the end of the day that I would receive a call but I never have. I really would love to be a Microsoft Partner so I can start selling my Minecraft maps on the store. I have been extremly patient and would really want to know what's going on with the case?

 

Many thanks, 

 

Cribby

Also, I had already pass employment verification before. Now, system also respond as fail on employment verification process because just change my companies' name as sama as tax certification document without extended name for initials like corp. instead of corporation.

Hi @Andra ,

 

I have a similar problem where I can no longer find a contact person. I have an MPN ID, I also got through the business verification through the support team, but I can't access the MPN section. For this I got the following message from the support team.

 

"Thank you for taking the time today to discuss your support request 2106300040001462 regarding "cannot access MAPS" with me on the phone.
Here again is a summary of our conversation:
- Unfortunately, your account has been suspended. According to my information, the decision is based on suspected credit card fraud.
- Unfortunately, I do not have any further information available.
As just discussed, I will proceed with archiving this ticket. We look forward to continuing to support you as a valued Microsoft partner."

 

My inquiry how I should proceed here could not be answered. My then (November 2020) transfer to Microsoft for the Action Pack was returned by Microsoft without explanation. Can you help me here?

Hi @EmrichMichael ,

 

thanks for the details. So you are saying your partner account is authorized in Partner Center and you can`t purchase MAPS because of an intermittent issue or your partner account is suspended completely?

I am adding here the documentation supporting the purchase process for MAPS for the first scenario Microsoft Action Pack Purchase in Partner Center

 

Thank you,

Andra

Hi @Andra 

 

unfortunately, i can't get that far. we are authorized in the csp area. The MPN ID is also displayed there. In the MPN area I only get Programs, Adv. Specializations and Benefits displayed. No membership offers and no competencies.

Hello @Andra 

 

I am not able to buy an action pack even though I  was approved back in May 2021. I have a ticket out since June 1st; however, I am not getting a resolution (2106010040002363). Really appreciate your help, or you can escalate it to the proper channel.   I am sorry for my frustration throughout this process; however, this process takes the best of us and should be straightforward.

 

Thank you so much!

Best,

I dont understand why Microsoft doesn't solve the process problems with these Partner Verification processes. These processes are clearly the most discussed on the Microsoft Partner Community discussion website. Partner Membership Discussions - Microsoft Partner Community

 

Surely Partners and Microsoft's Customers would benefit from Partners being focused on solving customer problems instead of being distracted by these verification processes.
